Global Piezoelectric Diaphragm Market 2017-2021
About Piezoelectric Diaphragm
The term piezin in Greek means press. Piezoelectricity is a phenomenon where materials, such as crystals and ceramics, store charge upon application of mechanical force. Piezoelectric materials exhibit properties, such as direct effect, where a mechanical force is applied to induce a voltage into the material, and converse effect where the application of voltage results in changing the shape of the crystal. Piezoelectric devices are integrated into cell phones, acoustic guitar pickups, musical greeting cards, certain printers, diesel fuel injectors, grill igniters, ultrasonic transducers, and vibration sensors that function on piezoelectric technology.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global Piezoelectric Diaphragm market to grow at a CAGR of 6.83% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Piezoelectric Diaphragm Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global piezoelectric diaphragm market: CUI, International Components, Mallory Sonalert Products, and Murata Manufacturing.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AAC Technologies, Advanced Cerametrics, APC International, and Sonitron.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is growing usage of piezoelectric devices in several applications. Piezoelectric devices can be used in high-speed information storage devices. A planar piezoelectric microactuator is light and can overcome friction caused by ball bearings in conventional actuators. A dual-stage actuator can be used as a magnetic disk drive. Therefore, the use of piezoelectric devices in storage devices is expected to increase exponentially during the forecast period.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is rising opportunities in automotive industry. Piezoelectric devices hold significance in a broad range of vehicle components. For instance, piezoelectric diaphragms are used in cars, trucks, or any automobile reverse indicators. Furthermore, piezo buzzers that are integrated with piezoelectric diaphragms are used in automobile alarms to prevent car thefts. These piezo buzzers are cost-effective and can function efficiently for a longer duration without any deterioration. The two major criteria fulfilled using the piezoelectric diaphragms in automobiles are security and reliability. Sensors, such as piezoelectric tire pressure sensors, backup sensors, dynamic pressure sensors, and engine knock sensors, are used for safety in most of the cars as of 2015.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is high cost of piezoelectric smart materials. Composite materials with ceramics form smart materials that are used to produce piezoelectric diaphragms. Despite being highly efficient, these piezoelectric smart materials are costly, which in turn results in high cost of products developed with these components. End-users of these components are focusing on reducing the cost of manufacturing devices that results in reducing the demand for piezoelectric smart materials or increasing the price pressure on the piezoelectric smart materials vendors. minishes.
