Capacitive Sensor Market Overview

The global capacitive sensor market is expected to boost at a CAGR of 5.2%, with a value of USD 27.03 billion over the projected 2020-2027.

The capacitive sensor is a proximity sensing device in the presence or absence of electrically charged components in a particular material. The sensor consists of a probe that measures the target's distance, an electronic driver to convert the oscillation changes into voltage, and an electronic device to indicate and record the resulting voltage change. It is generally used to detect and measure positive, proximity, and acceleration in various devices like phones, tablets, laptops, trackpads, automobiles, and aerospace components. Compared to the traditionally used resistive or inductive sensors, capacitive sensors are more durable, sensitive and provide more accurate measurements. As a result, they find extensive applications across various industries like consumer electronics, aerospace, healthcare, food and beverage, and automotive.

The significant growth in the consumer electronics industry across the globe, along with the rising automation of complex manufacturing processes, is one of the key factors that positively impact the market.
