Dublin, Aug. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Piezoelectric Materials - A Global Market Overview" report has been added to's offering.

The report reviews, analyzes and projects the global Piezoelectric Materials market for the period 2014-2023 in terms of market value in US$; and the compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) projected from 2017 through 2023

Piezoelectric materials constitute various types of ceramics, polymers, crystals and composites that can generate a voltage when being subjected to an external pressure or, conversely, expand upon the application of a voltage. A piezoelectric material's response to mechanical forces/pressures resulting in the generation of electric charges/voltages is referred to as the direct piezoelectric effect. In contrast, the application of electric charges/fields causing the induction of mechanical stresses or strains is termed as the converse piezoelectric effect.

Asia-Pacific leads the global market in terms of demand for piezoelectric materials, which is likely to be sustained by burgeoning auto and consumer electronics industries. The use of piezoelectric materials in the automotive sector has grown by leaps and bounds and they are finding application in fuel injectors, tire pressure sensors, engine knock sensors, backup sensors, dynamic pressure sensors and a number of other crucial safety features common in modern cars.
