Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Haptic Touchscreen Market (2013 - 2018) By Components (Kinesthetic & Tactile Sensing, Actuators), Touch Technology (Resistive, Capacitive), Devices (Touchscreens, Input Devices), and Applications (Consumer Electronics, Automotive, Medical)" report to their offering.
The haptic technology has been explored for human computer interaction since long. It became popular and well known in the form of vibrating alarms in cell phones. Haptic sensing is considered to be more direct as compared to the other senses used in human computer interaction like audition and vision. The touch sensations are created by a haptic actuator embedded in the device.
Some of the major companies dominating the haptic touchscreen industry are Immersion (U.S.), Senseg (Finland), SMK Electronics (U.S.), and others. Immersion (U.S.) is the major haptic solution provider in the industry and it is found that Immersion covers about 95% of the overall market share in the haptic technology solution market.
All the applications, touch technologies and their sub segments are discussed in the report. The overall Haptic Touchscreens market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 41% from 2013 to 2018. Need for product differentiation and increasing growth of the haptic touchscreens in the consumer electronics sectors are the major driving factors for the haptic touchscreens market. Adding haptic and sound feedback to touchscreens using different types of actuators is one of the emerging technologies in the field of the touchscreens. The haptic driver provides a touch sensation when a user interacts with a touchscreen. Handset design challenges and the high power consumption are the major barriers in the growth of haptic touchscreens market.
In-depth competitive landscape for each player and market share has been given in the report along with geographic analysis for haptic touchscreens market, covering the major regional markets, viz. North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (ROW). Some of the major agreements like the agreement between Immersion Corporation (U.S.) and Motorola Inc. (U.S.) other the major acquisitions, collaborations, and partnerships that boost the sales of haptic touchscreens are discussed in the report.
