The global capacitive sensor market grew at a CAGR of around 7% during 2014-2019. A capacitive sensor refers to a proximity sensing device that detects the presence or absence of electrically charged components in a particular material. The sensor consists of a probe that measures the distance of the target, an electronic driver to convert the changes in oscillations into voltage and an electronic device to indicate and record the resulting voltage change. It is commonly used for the detection and measurement of position, proximity and acceleration in various devices, such as mobile phones, tablets, laptops, trackpads, automobiles and aerospace components. In comparison 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, such as consumer electronics, aerospace, healthcare, food and beverages and automotive.
Global Capacitive Sensor Market Trends and Drivers:
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 creating a positive impact on the market. Capacitive sensors facilitate process control in manufacturing units by detecting the presence and position of unwanted metal objects, especially in smartphones, laptops, tablets and gaming consoles. Furthermore, widespread utilization of touchscreen display systems for human-machine interaction is providing a boost to the market growth. These sensors are used in infotainment, keyless entry, 3D gestures and interior lighting control systems and are also used for preventing automobile collisions with pedestrians or other objects while parking automobiles. Other factors, including miniaturization of sensors and the increasing adoption of medical robots to perform complex surgeries, are expected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global capacitive sensor market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
