Strain Gauge Market Latest Trends & Key Drivers Supporting Growth Through 2017 – 2025


Albany, NY -- (SBWire) -- 02/28/2019 --Strain Gauge equipment is generally smaller than even a postage stamp and is used to measure pressure, acceleration, displacement, length, tension, weight, etc. A strain gauge converts the force applied upon it into a change in its electrical resistance, which can then be measured. This property of the strain gauge makes it useful in a wide variety of industries such as construction, infrastructure, and automotive. The equipment is small in size but very important, as it helps ensure the strength, appropriateness, and stability of many structures such as bridges, railway lines, buildings, etc., as well as parts used in automotive such cars, airplanes, and ships.

Read Report Overview @

The global Strain Gauge market can be segmented based on type, application, and end-user industry.

In terms of type, the market can be classified into metal strain gauge and semiconductor strain gauge. The metal strain gauge witnessed significant demand in the market, as it can be applied for a large range of applications. The semiconductor strain gauge is utilized in cases of high sensitivity such as the measurement of local strains in ICs. The measurement of high-level sensitivity requires a high value of gauge factor, which is provided by a semiconductor strain gauge. A higher gauge factor results in a comparatively higher change in resistance, which is easy to measure accurately.

In terms of application, the global strain gauge market can be segregated into measurement of strain and measurement of other quantities. Strain gauges are most commonly utilized for the measurement of strain. However, other quantities which can be measured include length, weight, tension, displacement, etc.

In terms of the end-user industry, the global strain gauge market can be segmented into energy, transportation, and others. The energy industry, such as oil & gas, power, and mining, is witnessing a considerable demand for strain gauges. The transportation industry comprising automotive, rail, vessels, and aerospace also accounts for an important share of the demand for strain gauges. The others segment includes infrastructure, buildings, manufacturing, and research centers.
