Torque Sensor Market – Dynamics

Applications of Torque Sensors in Electric Power Steering to Steer the Sales

Electric power steering systems have been gaining popularity over customary hydraulic systems, owing to the assistance provided by them even when the engine stalls. Such steering systems are said to cut down the need for the drive belt, hoses, and pump, which further simplifies the steering functions. With the growing adoption of the electric power steering system, there has been a rise in the demand for highly accurate measurement of steering torques for meeting the safety standards in an automotive. This is expected to bode well for the growth of the torque sensor market in the forthcoming years.

Complexity on the Installation of Torque Sensor to Limit the Adoption Rate

For a number of electric and mechanical applications, a torque can function as a mechanical fuse to obtain precise measurements.

However, proper installation of torque sensors becomes of utmost importance for the proper functioning of any machine. Any error in the installation of the components can permanently cause damage to the machine, thereby taking a toll on the time and cost pertaining to the components used. In addition to this, torque sensors are extremely sensitive and can be overloaded or wrecked easily, thereby requiring efficient handling. These characteristics of the measuring devices are anticipated to impede the growth of the torque sensors market in the upcoming years.

Asia Pacific to Remain a Lucrative Torque Sensor Market

The torque sensor market is anticipated to maintain an upward growth curve, on the back of high adoption rate of torque sensors in this region. With the incessantly growing population in this region, there has been a notable rise in the demand for vehicles. This is further fueled by the rise in the GHDI of the consumers that has generated the demand for vehicles with advanced features.

Being a mature region in terms of the growth of the automotive industry, demand for torque sensors and their upgraded versions have been on a surge, which is fulfilled by a large number of manufacturers sporting in APAC. As a result of which the torque sensors market have been growing at an impressive pace in the region.
