Haptic Technology Market by Component (Actuators, Drivers & Controllers), Feedback (Tactile, Force), Application (Automotive & Transportation, Consumer Electronics, Healthcare, Gaming, Engineering, Education & Research), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022
“The global haptic technology market to be valued at USD 19,549.8 million by 2022.”
The global haptic technology market is expected to be valued at USD 19.55 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 16.20% between 2016 and 2022. The key drivers contributing to the growth of the market primarily include increasing adoption of haptics in consumer electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets, growing demand for haptics in gaming consoles, and potential market for haptics in medical and automotive sectors. However, the growth of the market is expected to be limited due to the high cost of force feedback devices and technical challenges related to product design.
Consumer electronics sector accounted for the largest market for haptic technology
The consumer electronics sector accounted for the largest market for haptic technology in 2015, attributed to the increasing integration of haptics into consumer electronic devices such as smartphones, tablets, and other wearable devices. Almost all the smartphones and tablets are inbuilt with haptics and the trend has been shifting to smartwatches and wristbands. In April 2015, Apple Inc. (U.S.) launched its smartwatch with haptic technology, and now Samsung is planning to integrate haptics into its upcoming smartwatch “Gear S3.”
Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest market for haptic technology and is expected to be the fastest-growing market between 2016 and 2022
Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest share of the global haptic technology market in 2015, driven by the presence of several major semiconductor companies and consumer electronics manufacturing companies in the Asia-Pacific region, especially in China, Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan. Most of the consumer electronics are manufactured in this region and these electronic companies are the end users of haptic products where haptics are integrated into the electronic devices. In addition, several automotive OEMs and medical device manufactures are integrating haptics into their products which would increase the market for haptics in Asia-Pacific at a considerable rate.
