Acoustic waves which are also termed as sound waves are longitudinal waves which disseminate through adiabatic compression and decompression. The acoustic waves are differentiated on account of their velocities and displacement directions. The acoustic wave sensors are sensors which can detect the acoustic waves and hence these are being used commercially for many years. One of the primary end user industries of these devices is telecommunications industry which employs numerous acoustic wave filters annually mainly for base stations and mobile cell phones. Moreover, these can also used for automotive applications as torque and tire pressure sensors, in medical and chemical applications and for industrial and commercial applications in order to detect humidity, vapour and temperature. The global market for acoustic wave sensors is being driven by the adoption of sophisticated technologies to be used for sensing applications. Moreover, the advantages offered by acoustic wave sensors over older technologies in terms of their low manufacturing cost and wireless operations also impact the market growth significantly. Furthermore, expansion of end use industries such as automobile, consumer electronics and medical can also fuel the market growth. These sensors are also being adopted in surveillance and security. However, the less compatibility of acoustic wave sensors with other products can restrain the market growth. Geographically stating, on account of their sophisticated technology, low cost of manufacturing and wireless nature, the acoustic wave sensors are being largely adopted in North America region. Moreover, expansion of automobile industry in the Asia Pacific is also driving the growth of acoustic wave sensor market in the region.
