Haptics Industry Will Be Worth $2.3bn by 2016 Research Report

MarketResearchReports.Biz has recently added a research document to their roster titled “Haptics 2016-2026: Technologies, Markets And Players”.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/10/2015 -- Haptics are an essential feature of the user experience (UX) platform in many electronic products today. Whether as notification provision in a vibrating smartphone, tension building in a video game controller, or input confirmation in an industrial scanner, haptics technologies have now reached billions of electronics devices. The report finds that the haptics industry will be worth $2.3bn by 2016.

Haptics technology options

The most common of these technologies is the eccentric rotating mass (ERM) motor. Cheap, robust and very effective, this solution dominates the marketplace. However, technology development into newer forms of haptics with new and improved performance capabilities has been extensive, especially in the last decade.

From more logical progressions such as the use of voice coils, or linear resonant actuators, into ceramic or newer polymeric piezoelectric options, right through to drastically different techniques using microfluidics, ultrasound, or electrostatics, the ecosystem of available technology is now extremely diverse.

Replacing a dominant incumbent

However, the challenge of replacing a cheap, reliable, and generally adequate incumbent is significant. Many companies have tried and failed to diversify into other technology areas, with the next iteration simply returning to the incumbent. However, as longer-term, carefully developed use-cases emerge, these emerging haptics will begin to find their niches and gradually see sustainable growth.

The challenge has been met head on by many of the largest companies in the world, with Apple's announcement of their Taptic module being typical of new developments that will emerge. They are backing new haptics with both financial support and product reputations.

Identifying the best application sectors

As the largest sector by some way, applications in consumer electronics, and particularly implementation in mobile phones, has been the area of greatest interest and investment. However, it is niche areas where haptics has been gaining sustainable momentum. The wearable technology space is one of great interest, where user experiences still require extensive improvement, and consistent skin contact puts haptics in an excellent position to be a part of this. In automotive, many of the largest manufacturers and tier 1 suppliers have dedicated haptics teams, working on ways to improve user sensation for increasingly electrified vehicle interior consoles. Finally, work in the medical space has shown how integrating different types of haptics can accelerate the education process for tactile procedures.
