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. The major players of the force sensor market are: Spectris plc (U.K), HONEYWELL INTERNATIONAL INC. (U.S), TE Connectivity Ltd. (Switzerland), Sensata Technologies Inc. (U.S) and Infineon Technologies AG (Germany).

Organic printed force sensors are being developed to cater the changing demands ensuring environmental regulation and uncompromised performance. Wireless force sensors are gradually impregnating medical industry, enhancing dynamic untethered monitoring and diagnostics in natural environment. Thin film force sensors are presently used in consumer electronic devices and the market is being assisted by Internet of Things (IoT) as well.

The research methodology followed for this report comprised of initial segmentation of the market by application, type and geography. This was followed by mining of market volume and revenue of various types of force sensors employed in different applications respect to various regions. Bottom up approach was followed for estimating the market size and its forecast for period 2016-2021 was done. The data figures so estimated were validated through primary research process by KOLs which included manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and end users.
