Overview of the global torque sensors market

The global torque sensors market will grow steadily during the forecast period and will post a CAGR of almost 10% by 2020. This market research analysis identifies the penetration of electric power assisted steering (EPAS) systems in automobiles as one of the primary growth factors for this market. The growing demand for passenger, commercial, and high-performance vehicles have resulted in the higher penetration of EPAS systems in automobiles as they play a major role in achieving the desired fuel-efficiency levels and also consume much lesser energy when compared to the standard steering systems. Since EPAS systems mainly constitute a torque sensor fitted in-line with the steering column, a rapid increase in their adoption will positively impact the growth of this market.

One of the major torque sensors market trends is the rise in demand for wireless connectivity in torque sensors. Focusing on enhancing their energy efficiency and to cut operational costs, industries have the need to closely monitor all involved processes for inconsistencies. This will increase the adoption of industrial wireless sensor networks (IWSNs) as they facilitate the sensing of designated signals. These signals are then interpreted and analyzed by a system that makes conclusions related to several parameters such as machine performance statistics, safety parameters, and automation and robotics. This widespread adoption of IWSNs will demand the wireless connectivity in torque sensors as well and torque sensor manufacturers will start focusing on implementing wireless technology in their products. One of the major industrial automation companies ATI Industrial Automation, has already launched its wireless torque sensing system with a device called Wireless Force/Torque that can support upto six torque sensors and can be easily with an existing wireless infrastructure.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is highly technology intensive and due to the presence of a number of large- and small-scale torque sensor manufacturers, this global market appears to be highly fragmented. The lack of technological standardization induces vendors to use any preferred technology, which intensifies the level of competition in the market. Large-scale industries and MNCs prefer torque sensors offered by well-established players in the market while SMEs and small scale industries prefer regional players as they provide customized solutions at comparative prices. Vendors mainly compete on the basis of the technologies used, product quality, and accuracy in torque measurement. Large-scale vendors will start acquiring small-scale industries and regional players, which will help them increase their market shares and also acquire new technologies.

According to the torque sensors market report, the leading vendors in the market are -

  • ABB
  • ATI Industrial Automation
  • FUTEK Advanced Sensor Technology
  • Interface Advanced Force Measurement
  • Honeywell Sensing and Control
  • Crane Electronics
  • Kistler Holding
