The capacitive sensor market for the automotive industry is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period. There is a great scope for capacitive sensors in manufacturing and supplying companies in all the nations since capacitive sensors are in high demand in all the manufacturing units of the automotive industry for almost all processing machines and other supporting functions.

Capacitive Sensors Market

The capacitive sensor market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Factors such as rising automotive sales, growing need for automatization in industries, increasing security concerns, and ongoing technological developments in consumer electronics in countries such as India, South Korea and Japan in the APAC region are expected to drive the growth of the market in this region.

Declining demand for all-in-one PCs and short supply of indium tin oxide are the key factors restraining the growth of the capacitive sensor market. In addition, lack of universal standards makes it difficult to predict the performance of a sensor from a set of specifications, thus acting as a challenge for the capacitive sensor market.

Key players in this market are focused on strategic partnerships, collaborations, agreements, and new product launches to increase their revenue. Synaptics Inc. (U.S.) is a leading player in the capacitive sensor market. The company focuses more on organic growth strategies such as new product launches and expansions to sustain in the capacitive sensor market. Its recent product launch was in March 2016; the company launched a family of touch controllers, named S788x, which caters to the safety needs of the automotive market. Apart from new product launches, the company has also been entering into collaborations. For instance, in February 2016, Synaptics collaborated with Valeo (U.S.) to develop an automotive touchscreen that combines capacitive touch, the ClearForce sensing technology, and haptic feedback.
