New Report on Global Capacitive Sensors Market

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Capacitive Sensors Worldwide Market Report 2013 - 2018" report to their offering.

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.
