Force sensors are primary perception devices which convert external force acting on it, into digital signals assisting the parent system to detect, monitor or measure the magnitude, direction or both of the applied force. Resistive force sensors are most widely used force sensors. These sensors incorporate conductors, which respond to change in force due to change in its diameter thereby impacting the resistance which is reflected on the output signal. Other types of force sensors are available as well which are designed for different applications and operating parameters. The force sensor market is segmented by applications and type. The market analysis on the basis of applications covers parameters such aerospace and defense, medical and pharmaceutical, agricultural, printing and packaging, industrial, automotive, consumer electronics and others niche verticals. By type the analysis extends into categories such as: capacitive force sensors, strain gauges, piezoresistive force sensors, optical force sensors, magnetic force sensors, magnetoelastic, ultrasonic force sensors, electrochemical force sensors, load cell sensors and others types. Load cell sensors are available in various shapes including beam style, S beam, canister, pancake/low profile, button and washer.
Besides the aforesaid segmentation the global market is also scrutinized on the basis of the prominent countries present in major regions such as America, Europe, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World.
