The global piezoelectric positioners market is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. The materials producing electric charges on their surfaces owing to application of mechanical stress following which the induced charges are proportional to the mechanical stress is called as piezoelectric effect. Scientifically, materials with this phenomenon have a geometric strain proportional to the applied electric field. This implies converse piezoelectric effect.
Commercially, piezoelectricity is extensively used in the fabrication industry for production of devices such as actuators, transducers and acoustic wave devices. Piezoelectric positioners offer advantages such as unlimited resolution, faster expansion, no magnetic fields, generation of a large force, no wear and tear, low power consumption, operation at cryogenic temperatures and higher compatibility.
Piezoelectric positioners market is driven by upgrade in technological infrastructure in manufacturing sector for LED followed by demand for a greater control in nanopositioning applications. In addition, critical use of piezoelectric positioners in the biotechnology, nanotechnology and semiconductor test adds to the market growth.
