Global Capacitive Sensor Market Overview


Capacitive Sensor Market Size was valued at USD 22.96 Billion in 2022 and is projected to grow from USD 24.69 Billion in 2023 to USD 38.51 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.71% during the forecast period (2024 - 2032). A capacitive sensor, a kind of proximity sensor, can determine if there are electrically charged components in a substance or not. The electronic driver translates oscillation changes into voltage, an electronic device signals and records the resulting voltage change, and the sensor measures the distance to the target. It is often used in mobile devices, laptops, tablets, trackpads, vehicles, and aerospace components to detect and monitor position, proximity, and acceleration.
