Touch Sensor Market Likely To Emerge Over A Period Of 2020-2027 | Market Research Future

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.
