The global piezoelectric actuators and motors market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to several benefits offered by piezoelectric such as reliability and cost-effectiveness. Piezoelectric actuators and motors, once a technological novelty has gradually entered the mainstream market, and is expected to witness significant demand and sales volumes. Piezoelectric actuators convert electrical energy into mechanical stress or displacement through a piezoelectric effect. These actuators are electromechanical motors working on the solid state piezomechanical deformation effect of peizoceramics. Piezoelectric elements have exemplary responsiveness and conversion competence, leading to the development of several piezoelectric actuators handling the piezoelectric effect of piezoelectric elements. Piezoelectric actuators and motors utilize the piezoelectricity of crystal along with controlling the mechanical displacement at efficient speed.
Piezoelectric actuators are at a crucial stage of development into a varied component market. The market is poised for growth owing to increasing demand for high volume and low-cost auto focus assemblies postulated in phone cameras. The demand for ultra-small scale motion devices and manufacturing inspection equipment combined with moderate cost ink printing cartridges has been rising considerably. Surging demand across medical and automotive sector is estimated to propel demand in the global piezoelectric actuators and motors market over the next few years.
Benefits offered by piezoelectric actuators pertaining to speed and size are further expected to fuel market growth. Reliability, resolution, vacuum compatibility and dynamics are some other factors that drive the piezoelectric actuators and motors market growth. Several benefits offered by piezo actuators and motors such as eliminating the need for gear reduction and high-speed are also expected to favorably impact market growth.
The widespread usage of piezoelectric actuators in the microelectronics and semiconductors industry, optics, telecommunication, biology, photonics and metrology sector is projected to spur market growth significantly over the next few years. Piezoelectric actuators and motors find wide application in vibration cancellation, gene manipulation, machine tool alignment, fiber tool alignment, active damping, shockwave generation, wafer mask alignment, and image stabilization, which is also expected to drive the global piezoelectric actuators and motors market growth over the coming years.
Ultrasonic Motors (USMs) are a class of piezoelectric motors. USMs hold comparative edge over the electromagnetic motors owing to its high torque low rotational speed, high stall torque mark ratio, making speed reducing gears superfluous.
