Market Highlights:

The Force sensor is used in various industrial applications especially in the process industries and manufacturing industries. It is utilized in traffic engineering such as rail monitoring, process monitoring, process control, medical science and biomechanics and also used for testing purposes.  Force sensor is a type of sensing resistor by which the resistance fluctuates when an external force, pressure or mechanical stress is applied. Thus, the force sensors are also called as Force Sensing Resistor sensor. The FSR are sensors allow to help in determining the weight and physical pressure.

They are very convenient and cost-efficient device. The FSRs are manufactured on the basis of piezoresistive principles which offer low manufacturing cost, which are extensively used in medical equipment. Additionally, surging demand for force sensor for automated robots where force control are required for safety and comfort in human or robot interactions especially for medical robotics applications are expected to drive the growth of the force sensor market over the forecast period.
