Global Tactile Sensors Market Analysis 2016-2019 and Forecast to 2026: Anticipating a CAGR of 9.2% - ResearchAndMarkets.com

March 28, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 28, 2019--The “Global Tactile Sensors Market Size, Market Share, Application Analysis, Regional Outlook, Growth Trends, Key Players, Competitive Strategies and Forecasts, 2018 to 2026” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The global tactile sensors market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 9.2% during the forecast from 2018 to 2026.

Over the last few years, considerable technological efforts and scientific research have been dedicated to developing tactile sensing based on different transducing mechanisms, with potential applications across multiple fields such as intelligent robotics, human-machine interface, and tactile sensor-based minimally invasive surgery among others.

In terms of adoption, consumer electronics and industrial manufacturing represented two major end-use verticals, collectively accounting for around 60% of the total market value in 2017. The growth in the consumer electronics segment is majorly credited to the perpetually growing demand for touchscreen units across electronic gadgets such as tablets, smartphones, remotes, and game controllers among others.

On the other hand, demand for tactile sensors across automotive applications is poised to register strong growth during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. With high sensitivities, tactile sensors are increasingly being employed in the manufacturing of automobile components such as clutches, brakes, door seals, fuel cells, etc.

Successful commercial tactile sensing-based products have offered a great impetus and promises of funding for further developments in this field. Thus, its no longer considered a laboratory technology and has displayed prospect to aid future advances across different industry verticals.

Success and growth of companies including Tekscan Inc. (Boston, the U.S.), Pressure Profile Systems Inc. (Los Angeles, the U.S.), X-sensors (Alberta, Canada), etc. have confirmed the existence and positive outlook for products based on tactile sensing technology.

With the imminent need for automation, increasing electronic gadget ownership, and the acceptance of intelligent robots across verticals, the demand for tactile sensing products will surge during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026.

Some of the leading tactile sensor manufacturers profiled in the research study include Annon Piezo Technology, Tekscan Inc., Pressure Profile Systems, Inc. APC International Ltd., Airmar Technology Corporation, TRS Technologies, Inc., Weiss Robotics, Cirque Corporation, Tacterion GmbH, Synaptics Incorporated, Touch International Inc, X-sensors and Barrett Technology among others.
