While the sales of strain gauge load cells will outmatch that of pressure load cells, the demand for pressure load cells is projected to grow at a higher rate during the forecast period. As these types of load cell do not require any electrical components, the demand for the same is on the rise, particularly for applications wherein explosion safety is a paramount concern.

Automotive Sector Likely to Remain Most Prominent End-use Industry

At present, the automotive industry dominates the load cell market, in terms of share and value. Within the automotive industry, torque meters and transducers are extensively being used in the production of vehicles, particularly during the final phase of the manufacturing process. Load cells are extensively used to monitor the force required to operate the braking system. Within the automotive industry, load cells are integrated with a wireless transmission system to avoid the usage of connecting cables. Companies operating in the current load cell market are continually investing resources on research and development to develop advanced load cells. The innovation race within the automotive sector continues to influence the load cell market, as load cell manufacturers are compelled to stay in-sync with evolving technologies within the automotive sphere. With the growing onus on automotive manufacturers to improve the safety and reliability of their vehicles, the demand for load cells is on the rise.

Load cells are extensively used in the marine industry in both onshore and offshore applications to address the mounting challenges in force measurement and marine weighing. Moreover, ingredient control systems and batch weighing applications within the food & beverages industry are expected to present players in the load cell market with abundant opportunities during the forecast period. The ascending demand from material testing, chemical, oil & gas, and medical, among others, are some of the other end-use industries that will most likely propel the growth of the load cell market during the forecast period.
