Market Highlights


The Global Torque Sensor Market is accounted for to register a CAGR of 12.6% during the forecast period and is estimated to reach USD 23,584.43 million by 2032.


Torque measuring is a significant advancement in the automobile industry. Torque measurement is required in a variety of applications, including engine gearbox testing, pump testing, turbine testing, and power measuring. Torque is an important element in the design of industrial and combustion motors. Furthermore, for any machine that achieves angular motion, the torque measurement is essential. The machines become more efficient when torque sensing is used.  A technological breakthrough in the area of sensors has occurred that will almost surely attract the interest of machine designers seeking to monitor power in drive shafts and other rotating machine components.


Additionally, torque measurement in rotating shafts is a fundamental necessity in a wide range of applications. Torque measurement in manufacturing machinery and processes can help to reduce downtime and enhance product quality, and it is an important measurement in the battle to optimize energy efficiency. In applications such as belt conveyors, measuring shaft torque provides an effective way to monitor the power utilised to operate the conveyor, which can help to improve speed.


Further, several innovative torque measurement technologies have emerged in recent years, with magnetoelastic, optical, and SAW technologies being the most popular. The sensors based on these technologies have good linearity, considerable resolution, and fair electromagnetic noise immunity in addition to being lightweight and compact. SAW-based torque sensors' wireless and battery-free operations enable easy integration with current system designs and flexible packaging designs. Magnetoelastic torque sensors are perfect for automotive and aerospace applications because of their substantially greater frequency response and resistance to external factors. These properties would certainly allow these torque sensors to be used effectively in many of the torque applications that are now in us.; they would also create new opportunities for torque sensors during the forecast period.


The automotive sector is facing increasingly stringent emissions rules, enabling manufacturers to implement novel techniques to reduce carbon emissions. Torque sensors are crucial because they provide real-time data that allows automakers to fine-tune engine efficiency and power management. Electric vehicles are the essential technology for decarbonizing road transport, which accounts for more than 15% of worldwide energy-related emissions. The sales of electric vehicles have expanded exponentially in recent years, along with their improved performance, wider model availability, and increased performance.


Furthermore, as per capita income and disposable income rise around the world, so does demand for personal automobiles and passenger cars. The number of automobiles on the road is growing, and so is the rate of carbon emissions. The need for alternative cars is expanding quickly as a result of rising fuel prices and increased public awareness of global warming. The demand for hybrid electric vehicles is rising worldwide due to the fact that they are more fuel-efficient and emit fewer greenhouse gases. A number of automakers are also concentrating on the creation and launch of several hybrid car models in order to facilitate the growth of electro-mobility options.

Segment Analysis


The Global Torque Sensor Market has been segmented based on Type, Application, Configuration, Technology, Industry Vertical and Region


Based on, the global Torque Sensor Market segmentation includes Indicator- Dynamic Torque Sensor, Joint Torque Sensor, 6 axis force/torque sensor, 4 Axis force/torque sensor, Static Torque Sensor. 6 axis force/torque sensor segment is expected to grow at 12.0% CAGR during the forecast period.  The most common type of force torque sensor is the six-axis sensor. This sensor is capable of measuring forces in all directions. Strain gauge technology is commonly employed in six-axis torque sensors; when applied pressure, the resistance within the gauge rises or lowers in proportion to the force received. This approach is used by the sensor to determine how its exterior frames move in relation to one another. Six-axis sensors are used in robotic arms at the "joint." Force/torque sensors with six axes measure all forces and moments on three orthogonal axes. All forces and moments are collected as physical, piezoelectric signals, and no calculations are required. The 6-axis force-torque sensor measures force and torque along all six axes. This allows for exact control when it comes to difficult assembly, polishing, sanding, or deburring jobs.


Based on Configuration, the global Torque Sensor market has been segmented into Wireless Torque Sensor, and Wireless Torque Sensor. The Wired Torque Sensor is expected to grow at 17.3% CAGR during the forecast period.  In wireless torque sensor, torque information has to be transmitted in a wireless non-contact manner from the rotating shaft to the static readout environment. technical approach is to detect torque on the rotating shaft and transfer it to a stationary receiver via an electric, magnetic, or electromagnetic field. Wireless sensors deliver more accurate measurements in less time and with less effort than alternatives. Because of high shaft speeds, vibration, and unclean, greasy conditions, wireless torque sensor systems are used in areas where traditional torque transducers are impractical. These variables offer significant challenges for typical foot-mounted rotary torque transducers equipped with bearings and slide rings.

These variables offer significant challenges for typical foot-mounted rotary torque transducers equipped with bearings and slide rings.


Based on Technology, the global Torque Sensor market has been segmented into Surface Acoustic Wave, Magnetoelastic, Optical, and Strain Gauge. The Magnetoelastic segment is expected to grow at 12.7% CAGR during the forecast period.  Magnetoelastic torque sensors are most commonly used in automotive and e-mobility applications to detect torque in transmissions and drivetrains. The medical robotics and diagnostic equipment markets are likely to be the next areas of growth for this technology. Magnetoelastic sensors can be used to measure torque in large, non-servo-controlled motors, such as those used in processing applications and heavy machinery, for predictive and preventative maintenance. Magnetoelastic technology can also be utilized to tighten equipment used in assembly and food and beverage applications where precise, consistent torque readings are required.


Based on application, the global Torque Sensor market has been segmented into Robotics, Engines, Automotive safety system, Assembly welding, Aircraft flight control, medical devices, and Others. The Robotics segment is expected to grow at 13.8% CAGR during the forecast period. In recent years, articulated robots with built-in torque sensors have been commercialized. In particular, the number of cooperative robots equipped with a built-in Torque Sensor is growing. Torque sensors constructed into cooperative robots are cylindrical in shape and are integrated into the robot arm.


Torque Sensors detect the output torque of the rotating axis of the robot in order to control the pushing force and other forces required for the robot's task, as well as to detect contact with people or barriers. Torque Sensors are required sensors for robots to do increasingly complex activities and collaborate in the same place as people. This market for Torque Sensors is likely to expand further.
