Vibration Sensor Market Size, Share, Analysis and Forecast to 2028

The global Vibration Sensor Market size is expected to reach USD 8.24 billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 6.5% from 2021 to 2028, according to a new study conducted by Grand View Research, Inc. The increased adoption of these devices in various industries and sectors such as oil and gas, manufacturing, and mining, among others for detection of rotating parts and damaged bearings in machines are major factors driving the growth of the market. The usage of industrial IoT and predictive maintenance with vibration sensors for the remote monitoring of machineries is expected to provide opportunities to the market players. Players operating in the market such as VocalZoom and Colibrys Ltd.; among others are developing vibration sensors for industrial internet of things (IoT) for exploiting these opportunities. For instance, in March 2019, VocalZoom launched their non-contact vibration sensors for industrial IoT applications such as machine monitoring.

The growing adoption of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period as vibration sensors are used in these applications such as flight stabilization. In recent years, there has been an increasing demand for accelerometers in Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) devices for tracking the rotational motion. In AR and VR, accelerometers and vibration sensors are used for motion detection.AR and VR are gaining popularity in consumer electronics such as smartphones and gaming consoles, among others. These factors are expected to provide lucrative opportunities to the market players over the forecast period. Moreover, in recent years, there has been a growing demand for these devices in Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) equipment, which is expected to fuel the market growth further. Vibration sensors are extensively used for monitoring rotating elements in the Air Handling Units (AHUs) that are responsible air circulation in HVAC equipment.

In airbags, accelerometer vibration sensor monitors rapid deceleration of the vehicle in the event of an impact and convert it into a change in voltage. The electronic control unit subsequently responds by sending a signal to actuate and inflate the protective airbag. The governments in various countries have mandates the usage of airbags in passenger that is expected to impact the market growth positively. For instance, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has established the 49 CFR Part 595 standard that mandates the usage of airbags.

COVID-19 has positively impacted the market growth in current days. The demand for vibration sensors from various industries, such as chemicals, food and beverages, healthcare, and energy and power, is improving continuously despite the pandemic as the incumbents of these industries are trying to ensure efficient and safer operations of their machinery. The growing preference for online vibration monitoring is particularly anticipated to create growth opportunities for the market over the forecast period.
