Smart Materials Market Segment Insights

Smart Materials Product Insights

The smart materials market segmentation, based on product includes piezoelectric materials, shape memory materials, electrostrictive materials and magnetostrictive materials. In 2022, the Piezoelectric Materials segment held the largest market share of 36% in the Smart Materials market. Piezoelectric smart materials have the ability to convert mechanical pressure operating on them into electrical signals, which is known as the direct piezoelectric effect, and electrical signals to mechanical signals, which is known as the converse piezoelectric effect. Piezoelectricity requires a lack of centre of symmetry in the material, as well as a crystal lattice structure. Piezoelectric smart materials are used in a variety of applications in the electrical and electronics industries, such as transducers, actuators, motors, and sensors. Piezoelectric smart materials are also used as electroactive scaffolds for tissue repair and regeneration in tissue engineering.

Smart Materials Application Insights

The smart materials market segmentation, based on application, includes actuators & motors, transducers, sensors and structural materials. The sensors segment is expected to account for a significantly large revenue share over the forecast period due to the growing adoption of smart materials in piezoelectric sensors. Piezoelectric sensors are widely used in healthcare, defense, automotive, and aerospace applications. A piezoelectric sensor is a smart device that uses the piezoelectric effect to transform changes in pressure, strain, temperature, acceleration, or force into an electric charge. These sensors provide a number of benefits such as availability in the right shape, good freqstency response, little phase shift, and small size. It is also used in industrial applications to build sonar equipment and pressure sensors.
