Haptic technology refers to the use of touch sensation in electronics like mobile phones and tablets. It involves the use of vibrations, motions, pulses and forces to simulate interactions through a sense of touch. This allows users of electronic devices to have tactile feedback and touch interaction without actually having to touch anything. Major applications of haptics in mobile devices include vibration alerts for incoming calls and messages, vibration notifications upon selection of onscreen options and icons, vibration feedback in games and tactile surfaces that simulate physical buttons on touchscreens.
The global Haptic Technology for Mobile Devices Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 3755.61 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 18% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
The global haptic technology market for mobile devices is driven by the growing demand for touchless interactions from end-users. As new and innovative technologies such as 5G, AI, AR/VR gain momentum, an increasing number of mobile applications are being designed to rely on touchless interactions. This is pushing device manufacturers to integrate haptics to simulate the sense of touch without physical contact. Gesture recognition systems enabled by haptics make for seamless control of applications through intuitive hand motions and gestures. Further, the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated demand for touchless technologies as people prefer contactless interactions to maintain hygiene and social distancing. The rising focus on developing intuitive and immersive touchless experiences through haptics is expected to significantly boost the mobile devices haptics market over the forecast period.
The heading “Haptic Technology for Mobile Devices is Expected to be Flourished by the Growing Touchless Interactions” refers to one of the key market opportunities, touchless interactions. The growing demand for touchless interactions from end-users as mentioned in the heading is one of the major drivers propelling the haptic technology market for mobile devices.
