A Piezoelectric Actuator is used to convert an electrical signal into a stroke or a physical displacement which can be controlled. A blocking force develops in case the displacement is prevented. This controlled movement generated by the piezoelectric actuators is used for finely adjusting the mirrors, lenses and machining tools. Sometimes, the piezoelectric actuators are also used for controlling the hydraulic valves, special purpose motors, small volume pumps and in many other such applications, where a movement or a force is required. They also find applications in braille machines and precision knitting machines. Some of the other uses of Piezoelectric Actuators are in Photonics, Optics and Measuring technology for laser tuning and scanning microscopy, in Disc drive applications such as MR Head testing, Disc Spin Stands, and Vibration Cancelling, in Microelectronics such as Nano-technology, Wafer and mask positioning and Microlithography, and in Life Science and Biology such as Gene Technology and Shock wave generation.


The end users of the Global Piezoelectric Actuator Market mainly include the Automotive Industry, Aviation, Medical, Aerospace and Consumer Electronics Industry.


Market Dynamics

Few factors promoting Global Piezoelectric Actuator Market are its simple and easy to use design, minimal moving parts, lubrication free operation and high reliability. The projected growth for the Global Piezoelectric Actuator market is at a CAGR of around 16.24%. The unlimited resolution feature of the Piezoelectric Actuators makes them perfect for up to sub-nanometre range fine positioning. Their low power consumption and property of not getting affected by magnetic fields are making them more in demand as they can be used in places where magnetic fields cannot be tolerated. Another reason for the expansion of the piezoelectric actuator market is the booming mobile phone industry. The auto focussing mechanism in mobile phones with video cameras is one of the most sought out features, and piezoelectric actuators help in that with their silent drive characteristics.
