Global Load Cell Market: Overview
Rising demand for load cells in healthcare sector is expected to increase demand for load cells. Medical devices and equipment including dialysis machines (in-center and in house hemodialysis), infusion pumps and surgical instruments among others are increasing the demand for load cells. The growth of hemodialysis machines including home hemodialysis (HHD) is driven by growing patient population, replacement of existing HHD machines among others. Rising demand for HHD machines (which serves only a single patient) will increase demand for load cells. The growth of infusion pumps will be driven by increasing occurrence of chronic diseases, geriatric population and rising surgical procedures.
There is a growing demand for load cells in testing applications across aviation and aerospace industry. Load cells are used in design and testing during initial design, pre-flight and in-flight stages. In the design phase, standard load cells are used for aircraft component-testing such as cockpit instruments, aircraft flaps, seat belts among others. In the pre-flight stage dual bridge load cells test the frame structure. In the in-flight stage, load cells monitor forces acting on airframe, pilot’s touch on control stick and aircraft flight control system.
Rising demand for load cells in upstream, midstream and downstream activities are increasing the demand for load cells. Load cells are used in the construction of oil rigs. Rising demand for oil rigs will increase the demand for load cells. New, high specification and harsh environment oil rigs, replacement of old rigs, and interest of private equity to purchase oil rigs is expected to push the number for oil rigs which will positively impact the demand for load cells. Rising demand for oil rigs from shale gas producers in the U.S. is expected to increase demand for load cells.
