We have now seen how piezoelectrics are used in everyday life, and how they are made for this task. It is certain that they will continue to be used, in the medical profession, and possibly more as crack detectors. To this end, we need to continue improving them so that they can be used in more extreme conditions. To do this will require a greater knowledge of piezoelectricity, so the field will continue to expand in future years.
