Piezoceramic material was the biggest segment in terms of market size in 2014:
Piezoceramics are the most widely used and commercially accepted piezoelectric materials as they exhibit larger displacements or induce larger electric voltages than other conventional ceramic materials such as quartz, berlinite, and topaz. In addition, piezoceramic materials are cost effective and can be easily tailored to meet the requirements of specific applications. Therefore, piezoceramics is the most preferred material for manufacturing piezoelectric devices. Due to these properties, piezoceramic materials held the largest market in 2014.
Piezoelectric actuator devices expected to dominated the piezoelectric devices market during the forecast period:
Piezoelectric actuators offer benefits in terms of speed, size, reliability, resolution, and vacuum compatibility. In addition, emerging applications of piezo actuators in micro-actuator medical tools for minimally invasive surgery, micro-grippers in manufacturing microsized objects such as stents, and high temperature actuators for diesel injector valves in automobiles are expected to propel the growth of the piezoelectric actuators market.
The industrial & manufacturing segment expected to dominate the piezoelectric devices market during the forecast period:
The piezoelectric devices market for industrial & manufacturing applications is a fairly mature market, which holds the largest share among all the other piezo applications. Piezoelectric motors, sensors, actuators, and transducers have a variety of significant uses in industrial processes.
