Market outlook of the CP sensors for consumer applications

Capacitive pressure (CP) sensors are of huge demand, especially in smartphones and tablets as these sensors almost eliminate the problem of wear and tear in devices compared to mechanical input devices. Shipments of smartphones and tablets have grown rapidly worldwide between 2009 and 2014. For instance, unit shipments of smartphones increased to 1.3 billion during 2014 and as for tablets, almost 233 million units were shipped during 2014. Smartphone manufacturers such as Samsung embed capacitive touch sensors in touch screens as an input mechanism for their devices. This growing adoption of smartphones and tablets is a major factor propelling the growth of the global CP sensors for consumer applications market. As a result, the global CP sensor for consumer applications market is projected to grow steadily at a CAGR of close to 21% during the forecast period.

The implementation of innovative pressure sensors is another major driver that is expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the global CP sensor for consumer applications market are bringing out products with improved features and launching innovative products on a regular basis. The accuracy of CP sensors has increased with technological advances, which help reduce energy and space consumption for end-users. Pressure sensors have become smaller, cheaper, and more energy-efficient and hence, it led to greater use of these sensors in portable devices and other appliances.

Application segmentation and analysis of the CP sensors for consumer applications

Wearables
Tablets and laptops
Smartphones
During 2015, the smartphone segment was the largest revenue contributor to the global CP sensor for consumer applications market and accounted for a revenue share of almost 75%. Reduction in sizes and better performance due to advanced manufacturing methods such as micromachining have helped pressure sensors in their adoption in smartphones, despite the continuous upgrade of the devices. CP sensors play a crucial role in smartphones as the performance of the touch, camera, and proximity sensors in a smartphone is highly dependent on the effectiveness of the inbuilt capacitive sensors.
