Global Haptic Technology Market to Grow at 14.4% During 2022-2027, Propelled by Increasing Sales of Touch-Enabled Consumer Electronics

Published on Sep 29, 2020

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Haptic Technology Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global haptic technology market size reached US$ 8.1 Billion in 2021. Haptic technology refers to the virtual and mixed reality solutions that engage sight, sound, and touch to provide multi-modal experience to users. It acts as an interface between the user and connected devices, such as tablets and smartphones, by using sensors to measure the physical feedback and pressure sensitivity. It is widely used in joysticks, controllers and steering wheels for enhancing the overall user experience in video games. Apart from this, it is also used for controlling surgical equipment and wearable devices and improving the efficiency of remote-controlled machines and telerobots.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Haptic Technology Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the increasing uptake of consumer electronic devices across the globe, along with the escalating sales of touch-enabled home appliances. Haptic technology is widely utilized in most of these electronics due to its ability to provide tactile feedback to users. Its use also offers enhanced sound, touch and visual effects that result in improved operational efficiencies. Apart from this, this technology is also extensively adopted for numerous gaming applications and augmented reality (AR)-enabled devices. Several hardware devices, including joystick and controllers, are equipped with haptics to enable convenient manipulation of virtual avatars when integrated with virtual reality (VR). This, along with the rising need for immersive gaming experiences and the increasing penetration of high-speed internet on the global level, is providing an impetus to the market growth. Furthermore, these solutions are now extensively integrated with 3D-touchscreen displays in medical electronics and automobiles. There has also been an increase in the adoption of haptics in robotics and certain devices designed for visually-impaired individuals, which, in turn, is acting as another major growth inducing factor. The widespread utilization of the internet of things (IoT) across industries and the growing integration of adaptive triggers with haptics are some of the other factors driving the market further. On account of these factors, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.4% during 2022-2027.
