DUBLIN, March 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/gp673t/global) has announced the addition of the "Global Piezoelectric Smart Materials 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The global piezoelectric smart materials market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.96% during the period 2016-2020.
There has been an increased substitution of mechanical means by electric motors. The use of smart materials is helping the industry achieve this goal. Active suspension systems have been designed for optimized vehicle control and comfort. Damping- and stiffness-related issues can now be solved by the use of rheological fluids. However, we expect the manufacturers are to be more inclined toward the use of piezoelectric materials, as they cost less than rheological fluids.
According to the report, transportation, healthcare, and smart packaging are among the sectors that have been receiving tremendous attention with respect to R&D. In the transportation sector, the military and aerospace sector, followed by the automotive and marine sectors account for the major R&D.
Further, the report states that smart materials are highly efficient materials. However, this performance comes at high costs associated with the high level of R&D involved. End-users look for more affordable and low-cost materials with considerable efficiency. Therefore, as the consumers demand more affordable options, the importance of smart materials diminishes.
