  • Others

The top three revenue-generating end-user segments in the global acoustic sensors market are discussed below:

Telecom sector

The telecom sector is expected to occupy a majority 48% of the overall acoustic sensor market shares by 2021, driven by their varied applications in the consumer and communication industries due to their stupendous performance, high reproducibility, and small size,” says Sunil Kumar Singh, a lead analyst at Technavio for sensors research.

Applications of acoustic sensors in the telecom industry are mainly used as filters in mobile phones and base stations. Acoustic sensors, especially surface acoustic wave (SAW) and bulk acoustic wave (BAW) filters, are used in cellular base stations to filter signals and boost reception.

Automotive sector

The automotive sector is the second largest end-user of the global acoustic sensors market, projected to be worth USD 2.24 billion by 2021. Vehicle monitoring, temperature monitoring, and tire pressure monitoring (TPM) systems are the key application areas of acoustic sensors in the automotive sector. Global automobile manufacturers such as Nissan, Ford Motors, and Tesla have started offering the TPM feature in their sports utility vehicles (SUVs) and multi-utility vehicles (MUVs). Also, the rising regulations regarding vehicle safety are adding a significant demand for acoustic sensors from the market segment.

Consumer electronics

The consumer electronics sector is projected to grow at a CAGR of more than 25% over the forecast period, driven by their extensive use in medical applications for monitoring strain and pressure,” says Sunil.

Acoustic sensors are widely used to record pressure values for diagnosis and treatment in the fields of cardiology, urology, gastroenterology, orthopedics, and many others. Demand for better medical treatment is currently driving the demand for sensors that are reliable, compact, and economical in the medical industry. Also, touch integrated medical devices is expected to further propel the growth of the market segment.
