About Commercial Aircraft Piezoelectric Accelerometer
An accelerometer is an electromechanical device and is mainly used for the measurement of acceleration, due to sudden impact, and vibration. The impact may be a large acceleration over a short period, whereas vibration is a small and repeatable acceleration. Accelerometers are used in aircraft and ships to their measure the velocity, position, and acceleration. These are used on inertial navigation system (INS), inertial reference unit (IRU), inertial reference system (IRS), or air data inertial reference system (ADIRS).
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global commercial aircraft piezoelectric accelerometer market to decline at a CAGR of (3.97%) during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global commercial aircraft piezoelectric accelerometer market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers new installations of piezoelectric accelerometers in commercial aircraft.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Commercial Aircraft Piezoelectric Accelerometer Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global commercial aircraft piezoelectric accelerometer market: AMETEK, DYTRAN INSTRUMENTS, Meggitt, and PCB Piezotronics.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: APC International, Brüel & Kjær, Dynaspede, Ericco International, and Kistler Group.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is emerging nanoelectromechanical systems. Nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) impart electrical and mechanical functionalities on a nano-scale. Some of the devices using NEMS are sensors and accelerometers. These advanced devices are miniature forms of MEMS. NEMS devices are experiencing rising demand as they offer advantages such as higher frequency applications over MEMS.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing demand for newer-generation aircraft. Commercial aircraft OEMs are actively engaged in the development of new-generation aircraft that feature both reduced fuel consumption and decreased noise and carbon emission. The demand for air travel is likely to double in the next 20 years. This is due to the growth in air travel in key countries like China, India, Indonesia, Russia, and the US. The year-over-year increase in the air traffic has also essentialized the induction of new aircraft to facilitate the growing demand. The global air traffic is greatly influenced by the growing economy and rising tourism.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is effect of temperature dissimilarity on PE accelerometers. Accelerometers are installed on aircraft to measure shock and vibration in extreme environments. It requires special consideration during the process of design and manufacturing. An accelerometer must be able to operate satisfactorily under a wide range of temperatures while maintaining high levels of stability, accuracy, and reliability. A typical use of aircraft accelerometer in high-temperature region is for the measurement of vibration of engines during flight.
