Top 9 Vendors in the Global Torque Sensor Market from 2016-2020

LONDON --- Technavio announces the top nine leading vendors in their recent global torque sensor market report until 2020. The vendors are identified taking into account their revenue, technology, geographical presence, and end-users.

The global torque sensor market was valued at USD 1.20 billion in 2015 and is likely to reach USD 1.92 billion by 2020, growing at a CAGR of almost 10% during the forecast period. The market is largely driven by the automotive industry, as torque sensors are widely used in various automobile components for torque measurement.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global torque sensor market is a highly technology intensive market. Vendors compete with each other on the basis of technological advances in their products and the delivery of high-quality and accuracy in measurement of torque. Industries require customized torque sensors to monitor and measure the torque acting on a variety of machine components. While large scale industries and MNCs prefer to procure torque sensors through well established players in the market, SMEs and small scale industries usually face budget constraints in procurement from larger vendors. Consecutively, SMEs focus on procurement of torque sensors via smaller domestic or local players, as they get customized solutions at affordable prices.

Due to the presence of a large number of vendors, both large scale and small scale, the global torque sensor market is highly fragmented. The lack of technological standardization in the market further intensifies the competition, as vendors are open to use their preferred technologies for torque sensors. These technologies are governed by quality and safety standards. “Industries also have the flexibility to get customized torque sensors based on their preferences and thus, the scope of expansion in providing customized torque measurement solutions to industries is extensive,” says Navin Rajendra, an industry expert at Technavio for sensors research.
