Research and Markets Logo

The Global Capacitive Sensor Market size is expected to reach $38.7 billion by 2026, rising at a market growth of 7.4% CAGR during the forecast period.

Capacitive sensor technology is increasingly developing to meet the advanced user interface demands of modern applications. Consumer electronic products such as tablets, smartphones, keypads and others that use touch technologies have fueled a growing demand for capacitive sensors beyond these applications. Factors such as reduced sensor size and limited calibration have also contributed to driving the market through its various applications in sensor-based devices.

Consumers are increasingly purchasing mobile devices, which is a key factor in the dominance of the segment. In the field of control panels for electrical equipment, like washing machines, televisions, collaboration systems (video and web-conferencing), micro-inverters and machine controllers, touch sensors are widely utilized. Touch sensor control panels that are resistant to fluid spills and dust can be sealed. The use of touch sensors in industries such as oil and gas, mining, manufacturing and chemical is, therefore, increasing rapidly.

In many countries around the world, the recent COVID-19 pandemic has affected the sensors, control and automation industry in general. While the automation capital investment was lethargic before the pandemic, it is expected to be stalled or replaced for a minimum of a year.

Nevertheless, the recent standstill in industrial manufacturing and production is expected to act as a wake-up call for the manufacturing sector to rely on human labor. In addition, the advantages of robotics and automation are supposed to be highlighted to help increase adoption after a pandemic. As IoT, industrial automation and digitalization are anticipated to become increasingly relevant to post-pandemic Tier 1 manufacturers, it may eventually become an opportunity, particularly in evolving supply chains.

Recent Strategies Deployed

Partnerships, Collaborations, and Agreements

Jan-2020: STMicroelectronics announced partnership with Fieldscale, an ST Authorized Partner and provider of simulation software. The partnership was focused on simplifying the development of touch-enabled user interfaces for smart devices containing ST's STM32 microcontrollers (MCUs).

Acquisitions and Mergers

Apr-2020: Infineon Technologies took over Cypress Semiconductor Corporation. Through the acquisition, a differentiated portfolio of microcontrollers, connectivity components, software ecosystems, and high-performance memories has been added to Infineon's portfolio.

Product Launches and Product Expansions

May-2020: Renesas Electronics launched the first RA microcontroller (MCU) with an integrated Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy radio. The single-chip RA4W1 MCU includes a 48 MHz, 32-bit Arm Cortex-M4 core, and Bluetooth 5.0 core delivered in a 56-pin QFN package. Together, the RA4W1 MCU and easy-to-use Flexible Software Package (FSP) enabled engineers to immediately begin development with Arm ecosystem software and hardware building blocks that work out-of-the-box with RA MCUs.

May-2020: Microchip Technology unveiled its next-generation AVR DA family of microcontrollers (MCUs). It is the first Functional Safety Ready AVR MCU family with Peripheral Touch Controller (PTC). With this AVR DA family of microcontrollers, Microchip built on high performance and high code efficiency devices, meeting demand across multiple industries with advanced analog and core independent peripherals, and more capacitive touch channels over existing devices.
