Haptic Technology Global Market Report 2023: Rising Integration of Haptic Technology into Consumer Devices Bolsters Growth

Dublin, May 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Haptic Technology Market by Feedback Type (Tactile, Force), Component (Hardware (Actuators, Drivers & Microcontrollers) Software), Application (Consumer Devices, Automotive & Transportation, Commercial & Industrial) and Region - Global Forecast to 2028" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The haptic technology market is projected to reach USD 5.0 billion by 2028 from USD 4.2 billion in 2023, at a CAGR of 3.7% from 2023 to 2028. The major factors driving the market growth of the haptic technology market include rising integration of haptic technology into consumer devices, growing use of haptic technology in automotive industry, increasing use of haptic technology in healthcare industry, and increasing adoption of haptic technology in industrial application.

Moreover, rising application of haptic technology in aerospace & defense industry and technological advancements in haptic technology are expected to provide ample growth opportunities for market players in the haptic technology market.

Tactile Feedback Segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period

Tactile feedback works on the principle of tactile sensing. It includes devices that interact with the nerve endings in the skin that feel heat, texture, and pressure. These devices are used to indicate whether the user is in contact with a virtual object. Tactile technology is being used mostly in consumer electronic devices such as smartphones and tablets that are integrated with a touchscreen. The growing usage of smartphones is a major factor driving the market growth for tactile feedback.

Actuators is expected to account for the largest market share of haptic technology hardware market during the forecast period

Actuators are embedded in the haptics-enabled devices. They are controlled by the embedded software and integrated into the device's user interface through the control software application programming interface (API). The actuators are used in different devices depending upon the requirement related to effects, design constraints, and size. The growing demand for haptics enabled devices for superior user interface is expected to drive the demand for actuators.

North America is expected to account for the second largest market share during the forecast period

The North American market is witnessing considerable growth due to the increasing haptic device deployment in consumer electronics and automobile applications. This growth is not only driven by haptic hardware but also by haptic software. Software companies such as Immersion are based in the North American region. The governments of countries in North America have taken several initiatives, such as funding and grant to universities and companies for research in haptic technology. Some of the key players in the haptic technology market in North America are Texas Instruments (US), Microchip Technology (US), ON Semiconductor (US), Cirrus Logic (US), and Immersion (US).
