Torque sensor, or torque transducer, refers to an electronic device that is designed to detect, monitor, record and regulate rotational and linear forces exerted on it. It converts mechanical input into an electrical signal and is commonly used in electric motors, rotors, gearboxes, craft shifts, crankshafts, engines and other rotating devices to ensure optimal performance of the entire system. Super acoustic wave (SAW), strain gauge, optical, magnetoelastic and piezoelectric torque sensors are the most common variants available in the market. They find extensive applications across various industries, including automotive, aerospace, defense, healthcare, agriculture and mining.
Significant growth in the automotive industry and the increasing demand for high-performance hybrid and electric automobiles are among the key factors that are creating a positive outlook for the market. Torque sensors are fitted into the steering column in the electric power steering (EPS) system to improve the fuel and energy efficiency of the vehicle. Apart from this, it is also used for real-time torque management, engine and chassis performance measurement and energy transmission of the automobile. Furthermore, widespread adoption of torque sensors by industrial robots for product testing is also providing a boost to the market growth. Various technological advancements, such as the development of rotary sensors with minimal weight, electrical noise, high stiffness and improved response time, are contributing to the market growth. The production of non-contact and wireless optical torque sensors with greater sensitivity and electrical passiveness, along with the emergence of medical robots, are some of the other factors projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, the analyst expects the global torque sensor market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
