Market Synopsis

Three-axis MEMS Accelerometers to See Rapid Adoption Throughout the Forecast Period

Three-axis MEMS accelerometers offer numerous advantages, such as detailed machine condition monitoring, greater signal integrity, a smaller size, and others. These MEMS accelerometers find primary applications in dealing with vibrations in the low-frequency range. The transition from piezoelectric sensors to MEMS-based sensors alleviated many of the limitations of existing systems for embedded and handheld condition monitoring. Other various application systems in which three-axis MEMS accelerometers play a vital role include leveling and alignment systems, inertia measurement units for heavy machinery, navigation systems, automatic guided vehicles (AGV), and construction and surveying tools. With benefits offered by three-axis accelerometers compared to other accelerometers, the segment is expected to witness promising growth in the coming years.
