Capacitive Sensors Market - Global Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2012 - 2018

Capacitive sensors are devices that enable the measurement of the position of a conductive or nonconductive surface. The high-resolution sensing ability of these sensors makes them highly popular in detection and measurement of position, proximity, acceleration, and fluid levels. Currently, capacitive sensing is widely being used in devices like mobile phones, tables, other mobile devices, laptop trackpads, and in many other applications.

The market for these sensors was valued at USD 7 billion in 2012 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 13-14% from 2012-2018. This can be attributed primarily to their increased usage in varied application areas such as position, touch, and motion sensing, as well as in capacity measurements. Also, the vast and rapidly growing consumer electronics sector has witnessed introduction of a large number of capacitive sensor-based devices thereby fuelling market growth.

Features such as requirement of limited calibration and reduced size of the sensors have also enhanced their incorporation rate in various sensor-based devices. Major factors restraining the growth of this market are lack of innovation and product differentiation, along with the availability of optional technologies. Application of nanometer resolution provided by capacitive sensors in the field of nanotechnology indicates a new market growth opportunity.

All the applications, industry verticals, and their sub segments are discussed in the report. Different operating modes of the capacitive sensors are also discussed in the report. The overall capacitive sensors market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15% from 2013 to 2018. Projected capacitive technology is preferred in most of the applications as compared to the surface capacitive technology. Projected capacitance is further classified into two types, namely self capacitance and mutual capacitance.
Increasing demand of the sensors in the consumer electronics sector and reduction in the size of the sensor are considered to be the major driving factors of the market.

Most of the major smartphone manufacturers like Apple (U.S.), Nokia (Finland), and Samsung (South Korea) are using the capacitive touch sensors for the touch screens in the smartphones as well as for the input devices like buttons, sliders, keypads, and touchpads. Capacitive touch sensors are in huge demand for the input devices as compared to the mechanical input devices because the problem of wear & tear is negligible for the capacitive sensing devices. In the retail & medical sector, there is a huge scope for the capacitive sensors in future as these sensors are continuously opting for care monitoring systems and other point-of-sale displays. Proximity Sensors are also in a huge demand in the industrial application and it is expected to show linear growth trend in the coming five years. 

Different geographical regions are also discussed on the basis of the different applications. APAC is expected to boost the growth rate of the market because of the continuous improvement and technological advancement in the sensors industry in the countries like Japan, Korea, China and India.

In different applications the companies are specialized in different sectors like some of the companies are manufacturing the sensors for the consumer electronics whereas some of the companies are manufacturing for the commercial applications like automotive, medical etc. Companies are inclined towards launching new products and technologies due to the increase in competition. Mergers and Acquisitions also play important role in the market. Some of the major acquisitions are also described in the report like the acquisition of SigmaTech Inc. (U.S.) by MicroSense LLC (U.S.) which enhances MicroSense's portfolio of sensing technologies. Similarly, important partnerships & agreements are also discussed like the agreement between TPK Holdings (Taiwan) & Apple, Inc. (U.S.) under which TPK Holding's touch panels are used in the Apple's iPad.

Technological and scientific advancements have continuously added quantum and sophistication to mechanization and transportation machinery which has constituted the backbone of modern day farming in the US followed by other continents as well. Weak economic conditions reflected in poor sales of farm tires in 2009. Increased global demand for farm produce coupled with revival in economy saw an increase in sales in 2010.


A slow but positive growth of the US economy and stability is forecasted for 2011. With reported increase in demand, production and income from farm sources, the US farm tire shipments are expected to increase at a CAGR of approximately 7.8% for the period spanning 2011 to 2013.

The US farm tire market has two segments, replacement and original equipment farm tires, and is further categorized into radial and bias construction types. The replacement segment accounts for the maximum share of total US farm tire market. The increase in demand for agricultural produce coupled with other factors will result in increased purchase of new agricultural machinery thus leading to a consequent rise in demand for original equipment farm tires. The US tractor market which is the largest end application market of farm tires is reporting constant increase in sales.

New technological and design developments in farm vehicular machinery have resulted in further development of farm tires, larger in size and for diversified uses. The country is witnessing regular growth in the net farm income, total crop production and production expenses which will continue to drive the farm tire market in the coming years. In addition, the continuously rising Indian tractor market, provides an opportunity to the US farm tire market in terms of more exports. However, issues such as increasing raw material prices and rising inventory costs pose a challenge for the manufacturers and dealers in the industry's supply chain.
