Piezoelectric Accelerometer Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Production of Sensor Technology in Aircraft - Sensor systems are starting to take on a bigger role in aircraft design. Compiling data on load, temperature, strain, and pressure provides an intricate history of the condition of various aircraft parts and may give early warning signs of issues. In order to assure a decrease in the time required during the conversion of raw data into an actual set of usable information, the need for sensor systems within aircraft operations is driving up the necessity for hiring a more qualified professional for data parsing. Moreover, the expansion of pressure and accelerometer sensors in INS will facilitate the integration of additional airframe data. The total cost of operating an aeroplane is going down since more data can become accessible for maintenance and control. Thus, it is anticipated that these creative strategies will attract more funding—both public and private—to the market for the creation and application of sensor fusion technology, which will drive piezoelectric accelerometer market expansion throughout the course of the projection period.
  • Growing Adoption of Smartphones - As of 2024, there are approximately 5 billion smartphone users around the world, or about 84% of the global population, who possess a smartphone. Usually, piezoelectric sensors are used in smartphone accelerometers. A piezoelectric crystal that has been accelerated in a certain direction experiences a tiny compression, which results in the production of a detectable voltage signal. Greater compression and voltage are produced in proportion to acceleration. Monitoring acceleration over time may be utilized to determine velocity, while monitoring velocity over time can be used to determine position.
  • Surge in Use of Wireless Piezoelectric Accelerometer - More and more people are employing wireless piezoelectric accelerometers as they do not require wired connections to transfer data. Numerous advantages result from this, including reduced installation costs and delays, increased sensor location freedom, and a decreased likelihood of cable interference. Wireless piezoelectric accelerometers are especially helpful in hard situations or places where running wires is difficult, such as outdoor spaces, manufacturing facilities, and rotating machinery. The applications of wireless piezoelectric accelerometers are growing as a result of advancements in wireless communication technologies such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Zigbee.


  • High Cost of Piezoelectric Accelerometer
  • Strict Certification Requirements for Piezoelectric Accelerometers Used in Commercial Aircraft - The competitors in the worldwide piezoelectric accelerometer market for commercial aircraft must follow strict regulatory guidelines while designing and developing navigation systems. In the US, the FAA oversees commercial aviation, while the EASA is in charge of it in Europe. These rules must be followed by aviation companies in order to produce high-quality goods. The primary cause of all INS issues is incorrect data from accelerometers and gyroscopes. These inputs will produce inaccurate positional data for the aircraft. Moreover, the certification procedure is more difficult when accelerometers are interfaced with other systems and combined with gyroscopes. Stricter regulations make it more difficult for new suppliers to enter the market, which will impede the expansion of the worldwide piezoelectric accelerometer market for commercial aircraft throughout the projected timeframe.
  • Lack of Efficiency of Piezoelectric Acceleromete

Piezoelectric Accelerometer Segmentation

Form (Piezoelectric Charge (PE) Accelerometers, Integrated Electronics Piezo-Electric (IEPE) Accelerometers)

The piezoelectric charge (PE) accelerometers segment in the piezoelectric accelerometer market is projected to gather the highest revenue share of about 60% over the forecast period. The most popular type of accelerometers for use in testing and measurement applications are piezoelectric (PE) models. These devices come in a variety of sizes, forms, weights, and sensitivities, and they have a very broad measurement frequency range. There are PE accelerometers that may produce voltage or charge (IEPE). They are suitable for vibration and shock measurements. Furthermore, since piezoresistive (PR) accelerometers often have limited sensitivity, they are more suited for measuring vibration than shock. They are also often utilized in crash tests for transportation. PR accelerometers can monitor long-duration transients as they typically have a wide bandwidth and a frequency response that drops to 0 Hz (commonly referred to as "DC responding") or steady state.

End Use (Aerospace & Defense, Automotive, Pharmaceuticals & Chemicals, Semiconductor & Electronics, Energy/Power, General Industrials)

The aerospace & defense segment in the piezoelectric accelerometer market is poised to generate the largest revenue share of over 30% over the coming years. The major factor to influence the growth of this segment is the rising demand for aircraft. For instance, notwithstanding the coronavirus pandemic, over 25,577 aircraft were expected to be in service globally in 2022. The majority of turbulence that aircraft encounter is mild, which causes unpredictable shifts in attitude or height. For small aircraft, moderate turbulence may appear as severe turbulence. When turbulent conditions are encountered by the airplane, passengers experience discomfort. As a result, the aircraft is equipped with piezoelectric accelerometers to identify turbulence. It recognizes when the aircraft suddenly loses height or attitude. Furthermore, the wing flaps may be instantly adjusted in a split second by sending correction signals. As a result, OEMs of aircraft are going to encourage the use of piezoelectric accelerometers due to concerns about lessening the effects of turbulence. This will ultimately lead to a rise in demand for the product throughout the projected timeframe.
