Torque Sensor Market Synopsis


The Torque Sensor Market was valued at USD 8.25 billion in 2017 and is exected to reach USD 12.69 billion by the end of forecast period with a CAGR of 7.82%.

Torque sensor have numerous applications across various industry verticals such as automotive, industrial, aerospace among others. Torque sensors are used for measuring the torque on rotating systems which include electric motors, engines, crankshafts, and gearboxes. Growing demand for electric and hybrid vehicles across the globe coupled with rising need for electric power steering (EPS) systems is driving the torque sensor market. The torque sensors are suited in a wide variety of applications including torsional test machines, motor dynamometers, electric motor testing, fan testing, hydraulic pump testing among others. The installation of reaction torque sensors is cost effective as these do not comprise of slip-rings, bearings, or other rotating elements. However, rotary torque sensors provide high accuracies and (revolutions per minute) RPM ratings. Rotary torque sensors are used for electric motor testing, dynamometer testing, gearbox testing, automotive engine testing and drive train measurements. Recently, there have been lot of developments in wireless and non-contact torque sensors including optical torque, and magnetoelastic which is expected to increase the application of torque sensors in several industries such as robotics.


Among all the application segments, automotive segment is the largest revenue generating segment and is expected to continue its dominance throughout the forecast period. The growing demand for better fuel efficiency, electrical power steering and condition-based maintenance is one of the major factors impacting the growth of torque sensor market. Application of torque sensors in robotics is expected to create opportunities for the torque sensor market during the forecast period. However, low reliability in high end applications is expected to hamper the growth of torque sensor market.
