LONDON--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Technavio analysts forecast the global piezoelectric actuators and motors market to grow to USD 25 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of more than 16% over the forecast period, according to their latest report.
“Manufacturers find piezoelectric actuators with internal copper electrodes to be cost-effective while providing enhanced performance. These actuators with copper electrodes are also extremely reliable and stable, which is driving their increased adoption”
The research study by Technavio on the global piezoelectric actuators and motors market for 2017-2021 provides detailed industry analysis based on applications (consumer electronics sector, automotive sector, and healthcare sector) and geography (APAC, EMEA, and the Americas).
|A piezoelectric actuator is an inverse piezoelectric device that converts an electric impulse into an equivalent mechanical motion. APAC occupies 49% of the global piezoelectric actuators and motors market, making it the dominant regional segment. The dominance of the region is driven by the high concentration of the major electronic device manufacturers in APAC.|

Technavio analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global piezoelectric actuators and motors market:
- Use of thinner multilayer actuators in smartphones
- Integration of haptics technology in wearable devices
- Growing use of copper electrodes in piezoelectric actuators
Use of thinner multilayer actuators in smartphones
“Since the thickness and size of consumer electronic devices such as a smartphone are reducing rapidly, there is a growing need for smaller and thinner components. Since a piezoelectric actuator is made up of micron-scale layers of piezoelectric material, it is increasingly adopted into smartphones,” says Raghu Raj Singh, a lead analyst at Technavio for embedded systems research.
Piezoelectric actuators are mainly used in smartphones for camera operations and haptic feedback systems. Also, piezo stack actuators consume very little power, making them very energy efficient. The shift towards miniaturization will provide a further boost to the market.
Integration of haptics technology in wearable devices
The emergence of smartwatches and smart bands for touch alert systems is leading to the swift growth of the wearable electronics market. These devices are compatible with a variety of devices such as Bluetooth/NFC-enabled headsets, media players, and smartphones. They can be used to monitor and track heart rate, distance traveled, number of steps taken, and quality of sleep; and receive emails, calls, and other notifications. These are made possible by the use of the haptics technology, which will accelerate the demand for piezoelectric actuators over the forecast period.
Growing use of copper electrodes in piezoelectric actuators
“Manufacturers find piezoelectric actuators with internal copper electrodes to be cost-effective while providing enhanced performance. These actuators with copper electrodes are also extremely reliable and stable, which is driving their increased adoption,” says Raghu.
The copper electrodes used in the piezo actuators show no loss of copper even at high humidity and temperatures. These piezoelectric actuators have high efficiency and can be used in applications such as in energy-efficient fuel injectors, where it needs to withstand extreme temperatures.
