“Global acoustic wave sensor market to exhibit significant growth between 2017 and 2023”
The acoustic wave sensor market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.7% between 2017 and 2023 to be worth USD 868.3 Million by 2023. The key driving factor for the growth of the acoustic wave sensor market is the growth of the SAW-based temperature sensors across various verticals due to their benefits such as accuracy, wide sensing temperature range, fast response rate, and low cost. However, the replacement of SAW-based sensors by other sensors in conventional applications is the major challenge in the market.

“Surface acoustic wave (SAW) sensors to dominate acoustic wave sensor market during forecast period”
SAW sensors held the largest size of the acoustic wave sensor market in 2016. SAW sensors are simple, rugged devices, which consist of a piezoelectric substrate in between two patterned electrodes to introduce and sense acoustic waves. SAW sensors are used to sense any change in frequency of waves associated with various parameters such as temperature, pressure, torque, and chemical vapors. SAW sensors are expected to hold the largest size of the acoustic wave sensor market by 2023due to the increasing demand of these sensors on the back of their capability to sense various parameters such as temperature, pressure, and humidity.

“Resonators to hold a major share of the acoustic wave sensor market based on device by 2023”
The market for the resonators is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2017 and 2023. SAW resonators can be visualized similar to crystal resonators. In SAW resonators, the generated acoustic wave is restricted to one surface of the piezoelectric substrate. SAW resonators are independent of the mass of the piezoelectric substrate and, therefore, are suitable for high-frequency applications. The high oscillation frequencies of resonators reduce the design cost and increase the simplicity of the resonators.

“Acoustic wave sensor market in APAC projected to grow at highest CAGR during forecast period”
The market in APAC is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The Asian markets, especially those in Japan, China, and India, are more likely to govern the acoustic wave sensor market in the coming years, in terms of adaptability and market size. India currently holds the largest share of the market in APAC owing to the higher adoption of acoustic wave sensors in various verticals such as food and beverages, and automotive, fueling the growth of the acoustic wave sensor market in this region.
