The global touch sensor market is presumed to exhibit a remarkable CAGR during the forecast period (2016-2027) owing to the growing demand for touch sensor devices, asserts Market Research Future (MRFR). Touch sensors detect the presence of close objects or touch without relying on physical contact. It is more reliable and convenient to use as it does not comprise any moving parts like a potentiometer or a mechanical switch. Touch sensor is one of the important components used in touchscreen along with a software driver and a controller integrated circuit.
Drivers and Restraints Impacting the Market
The increasing demand for touch-sensor devices drives the touch sensor market. With the growing digital technology, increasing use of touch-enabled displays, and increasing demand for tablets and smartphones, the market is anticipated to augment during the assessment period. Moreover, its simple user interface and low response time enable its use in devices where space is at a premium. Thus, designer has greater freedom for designing at a reduced system cost. Touch sensor is completely sealable and creates a device that is resistant to dust and water spills to a large extent. Such factors are likely to stimulate the market growth during the review period. Moreover, the rising adoption of touch-enabled devices in hospitality, retail, education, and healthcare is expected to inhibit the market growth.
On the flip side, high power consumption and high production cost associated with touch sensors are anticipated to retard the market growth in the coming years.
Some of the major players in Global Touch Sensors Market Size include 3M, Honeywell, Infineon, ON semiconductor, Texas instruments, Atmel, Siemens, Fujitsu, Bean air and Banpil photonics among others.
