About this report

Sensing technologies are increasingly impacting consumer electronics, driven by the increasing trend toward connectivity among individuals and devices. This phenomenon is contributing to a proliferation of information enabled by less expensive, low-power, smaller, more ubiquitous sensors that can be embedded in a plethora of devices or applications and readily send data to the Internet. Consumer electronics devices are defined as those purchased by consumers for personal use, such as mobile phones, laptops, television remote controls, gaming controls, excluding home appliances. Key sensor or sensor-related technologies addressed in this report include touch sensors, touchless gesture recognition sensors, motion sensing, pressure sensors, biometric sensors, brain computer interface (BCI) sensors. Sensors, mainly based on established technologies, are also used in consumer electronics such as mobile phones for sensing other parameters such as proximity, ambient light/screen brightness, temperature or humidity.
