Haptics is a basic channel of communication which functions through the sense of touch. It acts as an interface between the haptics enabled device and the user. This technology is not new to the market as scientists have developed and used haptics enabled devices for many applications; for example, a robotic tele-operation haptics device was used in the nuclear environment in 1954. Haptics technology especially force feedback technology was developed later and used in various devices such as in electro-mechanical arm in molecular docking, force feedback gloves like Phantom Arm, and many more. Tactile feedback devices were being developed in 1990.  Consistent R&D activities have taken place in this sector, resulting in technological advancements and innovation. This technology is now being commercialized in many applications such as consumer devices, smartphones, tablets, gaming consoles, smart watches, automotive touchscreen dashboards, medical and healthcare devices and instruments, industrial devices, and in military and aerospace applications.

Haptics technology is majorly categorized into tactile feedback and force feedback. This segmentation can be done on the basis of senses felt by human being. Tactile/touch feedback is associated with the sensations felt by skin such as surface texture, temperature, and vibration. Force feedback is associated with muscles and tendons, which create physical aspects such as direction force, weight, and mechanical compliance. Both of these technologies are used together or separately in many applications. There are four major components, which help the haptics system function, which include actuators, drivers and controllers, sensors, and software. Combining these components in a particular product, the haptics feedback is created to enhance the user experience.

In haptics technology market many component manufacturers and system integrators are present. The major companies present in this market include Immersion Corp (U.S.), AAC Technologies Holdings, Inc.  (China), Densitron Technologies Plc (U.K.), Haption SA (France), Johnson Electric Group (China), Maxim Integrated Products, Inc.  (U.S.), Tactus Technology Inc. (U.S.), Precision Microdrives Ltd (U.K.), Texas Instruments, Incorporated (U.S.), 3D systems Corp (U.S.), and many more.
