Another product category, piezoelectric sensors, are devices that measure changes in pressure, acceleration, temperature, strain or force and convert them to an electrical charge. The prefix “piezo” is Greek for “press” or “squeeze”.

Biochemical sensors will see a boost in demand because of the rising interest in wellness and healthcare applications and use of wearable technologies for monitoring body systems.

Trends Market Research also found that North America will have the largest share of the biochemical sensors market due to investments by the defense sector and rising healthcare demands.

The company studied nearly 30 companies in the biochemical sensor market, including Abbott Laboratories, Microchip Technology, Texas Instruments, Honeywell International, GE Healthcare, AMTEK, NXP Semiconductors and NovaSensor.
