According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Shock Sensor Market is accounted for $825.31 million in 2022 and is expected to reach $3,007.47 million by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 24.05% during the forecast period. A shock sensor or impact monitor detects whether a shock or impact has occurred and sounds an alarm. Shock sensors are commonly used in the automotive industry to detect the impacts of forced entry on vehicle bodies since they are simple to install, simple to use, require no external power, and offer an effective response at mid-range to higher frequencies. These sensors are used in "smart homes," where any entry, no matter how minor, triggers an alarm, and the alarm output can be watched on a laptop or smart phone.

According to the European Federation for Transport and Environment, approximately half of all automobiles not equipped with a tire-pressure monitoring system are driven on significantly under-inflated tires.

Market Dynamics:


High usage across consumer electronics products

Shock sensors are becoming more common in laptops and other portable devices that employ disc drives. Laptop manufacturers are equipping them with three-axis shock sensors that detect unexpected motions, free falls, and impacts. It is used in computers to detect shock or vibration. When the vibration exceeds a certain level, the hard disc drive read/write head retracts from the disc. When the drive is hit, the shock sensor stops the drive from totally shutting down or the head from scratching the disc. As a result, greater use of consumer electronic devices will enhance overall demand for shock sensors, accelerating market expansion over the forecast period.


Lack of technical expertise

The market's growth pace will be hindered further by a lack of competent staff or technological know-how, particularly in developing and undeveloped economies. As a result, the scarcity of technical competence is expected to provide a substantial challenge to the shock sensor market throughout the forecast period. In addition, the lack of availability in developing nations is a major impediment to the market's total expansion.


Application of machine learning and the internet of things

The application of machine learning and the internet of things is expected to provide profitable opportunities for the market, which will accelerate the growth rate of the shock sensor market in the future. The primary goal of market participants is to develop and improve the sensitivity of shock sensors. As a result, market participants are expected to benefit from the incorporation of IoT sensors to detect shock waves.


High cost and investments

Shock sensors detect significant shockwaves and tiny recurring vibrations to discern if someone is attempting to force their way into an individual's property. But, the shock sensors are quite expensive which is impeding market growth. Furthermore, the shock sensors necessitate significant investment. As a result, the high expenses as well as the required expenditures are likely to impede market expansion over the projection period.

Covid-19 Impact

The COVID-19 outbreak had a significant influence on the shock sensor market. The worldwide travel and transportation limitations, as well as the halting of manufacturing operations, have reduced demand for shock sensors. The global shutdown has caused a halt in vehicle and aeroplane manufacture, which has had a substantial impact on the overall market position for shock sensors. Because of a scarcity of raw materials, the price of shock sensors rises after the lockdown restrictions are lifted. This is predicted to have a negative impact on the already disrupted demand-supply chain in the shock sensor market.

The piezoelectric segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The piezoelectric segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, due to the large-scale use of these sensors for measuring vibrations or shocks and advantages such as inherent ruggedness and easy adaptability. These sensors are comprised of polycrystalline ceramic material or crystalline quartz and are used to detect variations in vibrations caused by persistent mechanical load on equipment. Piezoelectric shock sensors apply piezoelectric material to a solid mass. The increased use of piezoelectric sensors for measuring shocks and vibrations, combined with their ease of adaption, is projected to fuel market expansion.

The aerospace segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The aerospace segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period. The use of these sensors in the aerospace sector, notably in North America and Asia Pacific, is predicted to expand over the forecast period. Demand for these sensors in the aerospace sector is being driven by an increase in defence budgets and the usage of shock sensors in modernising military equipment. Furthermore, rising terrorist activity and other types of external aggression are prompting most governments throughout the world to increase their spending in aerospace equipment. Shock sensors are commonly utilised in flight controls and actuation systems.

Region with largest share:

North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period because of the presence of a well-established infrastructure in numerous industries and the better after-sales services given by the region's sensor manufacturers. Demand is expected to rise dramatically in a variety of end-use sectors, including automotive, industrial, and communication. As a result, unit shipments of these devices are likely to increase in the North American region over the projection period.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to the steady expansion of the automotive, aerospace and defense, consumer electronics, and industrial manufacturing sectors. Demand for shock sensors in automotive, goods transportation, and consumer electronics manufacturing industries is likely to drive market expansion in developing economies such as China, India, and Japan. Because of its strong electronics product manufacturing base, China is a big contributor to regional market growth in the region.
