Global Strain Gage Market Overview
The Global Strain Gage market size is estimated to reach $21.32 million by 2026 growing at a CAGR of 2.95% over the forecast period of 2021-2026. Strain gages are sensors whose measured electrical resistance varies with applied force. Strain gages are highly precise and are not influenced owing to temperature changes. Strain Gauges are increasingly being adopted to measure strain in underground tunnels, cavities, buildings, bridges, concrete, masonry dams, embedment in concrete and soil. Strain gauges consist of an insulating flexible backing for supporting a metallic foil pattern and is attached to the object using an adhesive. Strain gauge sensors are supported by a one-stop-shop product range and in-house technical expertise and have the ability to survive and thrive in harsh environments like deep space. Major factors driving the growth of the Strain Gage market include growing demand for strain gauges in automotive applications, increasing focus on developing cost-effective and innovative strain gauges by the key players, and the rise in the research and development activities to create high-quality strain gauges.
