Global Haptic Technology Market for Mobile Devices 2015-2019
About haptic technology
Haptics or haptic technology is a tactile feedback technology that uses the sense of touch by applying forces and vibrations motions to a user. Through this technology, end-users are able to perceive touch sensations when using electronic devices. Haptics are enabled by actuators that are embedded in a device, and it makes the user experience more physical and realistic. Haptic feedback for mobile devices is usually acquired through tactile feedback because the outside environment for mobile devices does not have any mechanical constraints. Vibrotactile is the most widely used tactile feedback for mobile devices, but advancement in actuators and controls have resulted in other tactile feedbacks such as pulses and vibrations.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global haptic technology market for mobile devices to grow at a CAGR of 29.1% over the period 2014-2019.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Haptic technology Market for Mobile Devices 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Haptic technology Market for Mobile Devices: Immersion, AAC Technologies, Analog Devices, Alps Electric, Atmel, Bluecom, Cypress Semiconductor, Daesung, Dongwoon Anatech, Fairchild, Hokuriku, Hysonic, Imagis, Jahwa Electronics, Johnson Electric, Konghong, Jinlong, Methode Electronics, Microchip, NEC TOKIN, Nidec Copal, RAONTECH, SEMCO, SMK, Texas Instruments, Visteon and Yeil Electronics
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The floating touch screen could be one of the future trends to drive the growth of the global haptic technology market for mobile devices in the near future. Many research activities are being carried out to design systems that can create 3D virtual objects that can be seen and felt in the air.”
According to the report, nowadays, consumers demand multi-sensory interaction with their mobile devices. The tactile screen currently available in most mobile devices does not provide a sense of real interaction. In order to fulfill the desire of consumers for a more natural sense of touch in human-computer interaction, mobile device manufacturers are using advanced actuators and sensors.
Further, the report states that haptic technology is not yet being offered by Apple in its mobile devices. However, Apple is the biggest seller of mobile devices in the US, so the absence of haptics in its devices is one of the major factors restricting market growth in the US, one of the biggest markets for haptics globally.
