Piezoelectric Positioners: Introduction
- The global piezoelectric positioners market has witnessed significant growth over the last few years and the trend is expected to continue throughout the forecast period
- Piezoelectricity is a property of specific classes of crystalline materials. This piezoelectricity is similar to electrostriction, which is a property of all dielectric materials. Piezoelectricity exhibits various mechanisms when exposed to an electric field.
- Typically, the electrostrictive impact is low and the course of this little change in geometry does not alter if the course of the electric field is reversed. As opposed to this condition, piezoelectric materials exhibit an inversion toward geometrical alter when the course of the electrical field is reversed.
- Commercially, piezoelectric positioners are largely applied in the fabrication industry for the development of components such as transducers, actuators, and acoustic wave devices
- Piezoelectric positioners are highly popular, due to advantages associated with them such as high compatibility, unlimited resolution, operation at cryogenic temperatures, quick expansion, generation of a large amount of force, and absence of magnetic fields

Rising Demand for Precise Control in Nano Positioning Applications
- Ultra-high precision latitudinal positioning of objects is of prime importance in the emerging field of nanotechnology. Precise motion control is extremely critical when it comes to nano positioning applications including microlithography, bio-nanotechnology, nanoimprinting, optical alignment, and semiconductor test and measurement.
- Piezo stages are the highest-rated mechanisms for nano positioning, due to their advanced characteristics and benefits associated with them such as high scanning speed, ultra-compact translation stages, high reliability, and high resolution capabilities
- Demand for precise control is significantly rising in nano positioning applications in several industry verticals, which is influencing manufacturers of piezoelectric positioners to introduce more advanced products in order to meet end-use requirements.
- This, in turn, is likely to create new growth opportunities for the global piezoelectric positioners market in the next few years

Limitations of Piezoelectric Positioners
- Some of the limitations of piezoelectric positioners are anticipated to hamper the global market in the next few years
- The positioning pace of piezo-based frameworks is constrained by the most reduced auxiliary vibrational frequency, which can create a significant number of positioning errors and can limit the scope of demand for piezoelectric positioners to some extent
North America to Lead Global Market
- In terms of region, the global piezoelectric positioners market can be divided into: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa
- Europe is anticipated to dominate the global market from 2019 to 2017, followed by North America. This growth can be attributed to development in nanotechnology across the two regions.
- However, the market in Asia Pacific is projected to register the maximum growth rate during the forecast period. This is primarily due to growth of the semiconductor industry in developing economies in the region.
- The markets in Middle East & Africa and South America are expected to witness moderate growth during the forecast period
