The global force sensors market size reached US$ 2.6 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 3.5 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 5.2% during 2023-2028.

Force sensors are transducers that convert an input mechanical load, weight, tension, compression, and pressure into an electrical output signal that can be restored, measured, and standardized. They offer high accuracy, long-term reliability, and cost-effectiveness compared to other measurement technologies. As a result, they are widely used in various applications, ranging from bathroom scales, musical instruments, medical devices to automobiles; detecting seat occupancy; and process controlling in manufacturing facilities. Presently, several manufacturers worldwide are offering force sensors in a variety of sizes, shapes, and capacities.

Force Sensors Market Trends:
The escalating demand for factory automation and high precision in manufacturing processes represents one of the key factors impelling the market growth. Apart from this, force sensors are employed in the aerospace industry to help measure force and in-flight torque controls, actuation systems, and braking systems with high reliability. This, in confluence with the rising air passenger traffic and the increasing emphasis on in-flight test and safety measurements, is contributing to the market growth. Moreover, force sensors are integrated into medical devices, such as catheters and endoscopes, which are used in a variety of settings like hospitals and home care. They are also utilized in surgical robots that can display three-dimensional (3D) visualization, which further enhances the view of the operative area and improves the control, precision, and range of small instruments. This, coupled with the escalating demand for minimally invasive surgeries (MIS) and the growing focus of healthcare providers on improving primary procedural outcomes and patients’ quality of life, is driving the sales of force sensors. Furthermore, as these sensors support several hardware developments and control programs in various military applications, increasing funding in various defense projects by governing agencies of numerous countries is positively influencing the market.
