Capacitive sensing technology is swiftly developing to meet the advanced user-interface needs of modern applications. The consumer electronic products such as smartphone’s, tablets, keypads and others that use touch application have fueled an increased demand for capacitive sensors beyond these applications. The factor such as reduction in the size of the sensors and limited calibration has also contributed in driving the market through its various applications in sensor based devices.


The capacitive sensor market can be broken down on the basis of its application like touch sensing, position sensing, and motion sensing and capacity measurement. The global touch control module shipment is expected to reach 1.4 billion units by 2015 with a revenue totaling US$9 billion. The capacitive sensor market is expected to grow at high rate and is expected reach $17.89 billion by 2018. The capacitive sensor market has dominated the resistive sensor market due to its high accuracy and more advanced features. Motion sensing application is expected to witness a significant growth in the next five years because of the technological advancement in the automotive industry and consumer electronics sector.


A new development in this field is the introduction of projected capacitive technology which is based on capacitive sensing detects the change of capacitance in ITO (indium tin oxide) contacts on ITO glass to detect touch positions and motion trajectory when the screen is touched. Projected capacitive touch technology has many benefits over traditional capacitive sensor including multi-touch capability, extreme durability and superior optics.


Asia pacific region is the leader in the capacitive sensor market. The market in the APAC region is expected to reach $6,779 million in 2018 growing at a CAGR of 16.81% from 2013 to 2018. Japan generates the highest revenue of $660 million in APAC region for capacitive sensor market. Apart from the traditional use of this sensor in touchpad’s and tablets, the Japanese researchers have come with a quirky idea of integrating capacitive touch sensors with the 1 micron size of nylon fibers. This can be used in hospitals for bedridden patients to monitor their health.


Cypress Semiconductor Corporation (USA) is the pioneer in the capacitive sensing market. In 2013, the company shipped one billion capacitive touch sensing controller and has replaced 5 billion and has increased the sales 4 times more than its nearest competitor. Other competitors in the market are 3m, Atmel Corporation, Fujitsu, Microchip Technology, Inc, Omron Corporation, Rechner Sensors, Siemens AG.
