The Global Haptic Technology Market size is expected to reach $4.5 billion by 2026, rising at a market growth of 13.6% CAGR during the forecast period. The Haptic technology refers to an interface between the user and the connected device. It offers two types of haptic feedback viz. tactile feedback and force feedback to the users with a sense of touch by applying forces, vibrations, and motion of the users. The Haptic technology finds potential application in joysticks, controllers and steering wheels, and future video games. Moreover, this technology improves the experience of users by engaging sound, light, and touch which permit the users to feel and control the virtual avatars and devices by integrating Haptics into a virtual world. Haptic sense is considered as more direct in comparison to other senses utilized in user computer interaction such as audio and vision.

The haptic technology market is anticipated to boost by a surge in the demand for consumer electronic devices like smart-phones, tablets, media players, home appliances, virtual interfaces, and the requirement for product differentiation. Also, the technological developments and increasing demand for gaming applications will further boost the growth of the market. The utilization of haptic technology in the medical industry by imparting training to doctors in several surgical procedures is also fueling the growth of the global haptics technology market.

Recent growth in Haptics technology involves invisible 3-D haptic shape with the help of ultrasound that can be seen and experienced. When complicated ultrasound patterns are focused, the air disturbances can be observed as floating 3-D images. Companies are putting their efforts in R&D to enhance touch screen devices that display physical buttons that come out of the screen when required. The research department of Walt Disney Company has launched new technology that permits users to experience and feel the texture on touchscreens.

By Component

Based on Component, the market is segmented into Hardware and Software. The haptics hardware segment is expected to procure the highest revenue share and is anticipated to maintain the dominance during the forecast period. High accuracy, superior input command speed, and enhanced user satisfaction are some of the aspects which are expected to increase the adoption of haptic technology in several devices. The growth of the market is also boosted by the constant technological developments in devices.

Feedback Type

Based on Feedback Type, the market is segmented into Tactile and Force. Based on feedback type, the tactile segment will dominate the market during the forecast period. Smartphones and tablets are the potential applications of tactile feedback in the last few years. The haptic technology market has gained significant traction due to the increased demand for these devices. As force-feedback haptic has been applied in surgical and other simulation applications over the past years, the market has witnessed slow but consistent growth. The market will experience high demand over the forthcoming years due to the various new developments.

By End User

Based on End User, the market is segmented into Consumer Devices, Education & Research, Automotive & Transportation, Healthcare, Commercial & Industrial and Others. The segment of the automotive & transportation application would exhibit the highest growth rate during the forecast period. This can be ascribed to the constant demand for high-performance electronic systems in hybrid electric vehicles and other expensive automobiles. Besides, the adoption of haptics in-car infotainment systems and touchscreens in GPS has also been increased. Moreover, haptic technology has been used in climate control screens, dashboards, accelerator pedals, and steering wheels.

By Region

Based on Regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa. Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the haptic technology market during the forecast years. The adoption of consumers’ devices has increased due to the growing disposable income, which is the significant driver for the market growth in the region. Various top smartphone OEMs like Huawei, Oppo, Vivo, Xiaomi, and OnePlus have their presence in China.
