Acoustic wave sensors are expected to show good growth across different application segments due to their competitive advantages over the other technologies. As of now, temperature, pressure, torque, and viscosity sensors are the only ones to have reached complete commercialization but we predict a healthy growth of the other sensors as well in future as more applications of acoustic wave sensors get realized in the years to come. Acoustic wave temperature and pressure sensors are increasingly used in automotive and industrial applications with some applications of torque sensors as well.

Due to lesser response time, passive nature, and wireless operation, acoustic wave sensors are gradually replacing conventional sensors for a variety of applications such as industrial, automotives, consumer electronics, military and aerospace, and healthcare segments. There has been a growth in the automotive industry that uses sensors to a greater extent from applications such as TPMS (Tyre Pressure Monitoring System), engine management, emission control to monitoring of air volume, torque sensing, exhaust gas pressure of EGR system. Adoption of acoustic wave sensors in many application segments will add on to their consumption in the future. Safety related mandates in regions like North America and Europe are driving the growth of sensors in automotive industry.

Technological advancement is opening new doors for the growth of acoustic wave sensors especially in automotive and medical applications. Penetration of MEMS technology in acoustic wave sensing in future is expected to play a major role in the overall market in the years to come.
The market size of acoustic wave sensors in the year 2012 was $256.0 million and is expected to reach $721.13 million units by 2018, at an estimated CAGR of 20.2%. In terms of volume, the unit shipment for acoustic wave sensors was 848.81 million units in the year 2012 and is expected to reach 2,985.40 million units by 2018, at an estimated CAGR of 24.8% from 2013 to 2018.

Growth of automotive market during the last few years has boosted the market for acoustic wave sensors significantly as a result of growing concerns for safety among vehicle manufacturers. Industrial and automotive applications will remain the biggest market for acoustic wave sensors and many companies will be emerging in this market in the coming years. Healthcare market will be growing at a swift rate during the forecasted period with the emergence of new applications. Surface acoustic wave technology takes advantage of the piezoelectric effect in its operation. Most modern surface acoustic wave sensors use an input interdigitated transducer (IDT) to convert an electrical signal into an acoustic wave.

Low manufacturing cost and further reduction in prices of these sensors throughout the forecasted period will be amongst the strong factors for increasing their consumption in fast growing application like automotives and healthcare. Europe leads in terms of revenue generation with most of the acoustic wave device manufacturers based there. The fastest growth is expected from APAC which offers great potential for acoustic wave sensors for various applications especially automotives and industrial segment.
The value of acoustic wave sensor market was $256.0 million in 2012 and is expected to reach $721.13 million in 2018, at an estimated CAGR of 20.2% from 2013 to 2018. In terms of volume, the total number of acoustic wave sensors shipped was 848.81 million units in 2012 and is expected to reach 2,985.40 million units by 2018, at an estimated CAGR of 24.8% from 2013 to 2018. The rapid growth in market size is due to the advantages of acoustic wave sensors over other technologies, emergence of new applications, and the smaller form factor of these devices.

The top acoustic wave sensor manufacturers are Vectron International (U.S.), Senseor (France), Honeywell International (U.S.) and Murata Manufacturing Co. Ltd. (Japan). Being the pioneer in acoustic wave sensor market, Vectron International (U.S.) is the market leader, whose market position remained unchanged for the past few years. Besides top companies mentioned above, companies like Burkert (Germany), Electronic Sensor Technology (U.S.), GE Sensing (U.S.), Heinz Messwiderstaende (Germany), IntelliSAW (U.S.), Northrop Grumman (U.S.), Pro-micron (Germany), RF SAW (U.S.), SAW Instruments (Germany), sensAction (Germany), Transense (U.K.) and many more are found to be manufacturing acoustic wave sensor for various applications.
