Market Report Description

The Global Torque Sensor Market size is expected to reach $15 billion by 2025, rising at a market growth of 7% CAGR during the forecast period. Torque sensors have multiple uses across various vertical industries, including automotive, manufacturing, and aerospace. Torque sensors can be used to measure the torque on rotating systems which include engines, electric motors, crankshafts, and gearboxes. An increase in the global demand for electric and hybrid vehicles along with a rising need for electric power steering (EPS) systems is influencing the growth of torque sensor market. The torque sensors are suitable for a wide range of applications including, among others, torsional measuring motor dynamometers, machines, fan testing, electric motor testing, hydraulic pump testing.

Global Torque Sensor Market Size

Torque Sensor Market Size

The installation of torque reaction sensors is cost-effective since they do not consist of slip-rings, bearings or other rotating components. Rotary torque sensors however have high accuracies and RPM ratings (revolutions per minute). Rotary torque sensors can test the electric motor, dynamometer, the gearbox, car engine and measure the train speed. Recently, there have been various advancements in wireless and non-contact torque sensors industry. These include optical torque and magnetoelastic, which are expected to increase torque sensor use in several industries such as robotics.
