Global Haptics Technology Market in Consumer Electronics 2015-2019

Global Haptics Technology Market in Consumer Electronics 2015-2019

Haptic technology

Haptics is a tactile feedback technology that recreates the sense of touch by applying forces, vibrations, or motions to the user. Through this technology, consumers are able to perceive touch sensations when using electronic devices. Haptics are enabled by actuators that are embedded in the 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 doesn’t have any mechanical constraints. Vibrotactile is the widely used tactile feedback for mobile devices but advances in actuators and controls have created other tactile feedbacks like pulses and vibrations.Technavio's analysts forecast the global haptics technology market in consumer electronics to grow at a CAGR of 21.1% over the period 2014-2019.
