Market Synopsis of Global Touch Sensors Market


Market Scenario


The global market for touch sensors is rapidly increasing due to the proliferation of touch sensors in various consumer electronics devices such as smartphones and tablets, remote controls, control panels of various home appliances in the industrial and automotive industry. The touch sensors are categorized into resistive, capacitive, surface acoustic wave, infrared, optical imaging, and acoustic pulse recognition touch sensors. The capacitive touch sensors offer various benefits in consumer electronics such as better optical qualities, longer product life, and better durability as compared to other touch sensor technologies. In addition, integrating these features of capacitive touch sensors in smartphones is likely to increase the demand for touch sensors during the forecast period. Furthermore, the capacitive touch sensors detect the presence of conductive objects by measuring the change in the capacitance of the sensor pad. These sensors are used to measure the level, flow, and pressure which are widely used in manufacturing industries such as oil & gas and pharmaceutical industries among others.


Touch sensors are used in the control panels of various electrical appliances as they provide user-friendly interface, consumes less power, and control high and low voltage devices. Touch sensors control panels can also be sealed which makes them resistant to liquids spills and dust. Moreover, touch sensors also enhance the appearance of smart appliances by simplifying its construction and assembly. In this regard, the touch sensors are likely to have increased demand in industrial applications, which is also expected to contribute to the growth of this market during the assessment period.


The touch sensors are reliable and convenient to use as they do not require any mechanical motion like switches and mechanical controls. Touch sensors are also known as tactile sensors and are utilized in various applications such as gaming controllers, home entertainment devices, home appliances, cellular handsets, public information displays, and portable media devices. Due to the presence of intense competition in the market, competitors are adopting new technologies including touch sensors to enhance their product and service offerings and reducing the overall cost of the system.


The increasing adoption of touch-enabled displays, growing demand for consumer electronics devices, and government initiatives for the adoption of digital technologies are some of the factors driving the demand of touch sensors market. On the other hand, high sensitivity, accidental touch is some of the factors hampering the demand of touch sensors market.


In April 2018, Integrated Micro-Electronics Inc. formed a joint venture with a Japanese company to manufacture copper-based touch sensors. Furthermore, in March 2018, Huawei announced the use of in-display fingerprint sensor technology from Qualcomm.
