Proliferation of Cell Phones and Laptops Drives Global Touch Sensor Market

A report recently added to’s vast repository, titled, “Touch Sensor Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2018 – 2026,” states that touch sensors are capable of uncovering touch or objects in the close range. It is way more easy to use since it lacks a mechanical switch or potentiometer.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/17/2018 -- A touch sensor is a crucial part of a touchscreen. It also acts as a controller integrated circuit and software driver. Hence, touch sensors having rotary wheels, rotational or linear sliders, and touch pads have great benefits for in-built user interfaces. Further, they can also be updated with easy changes in software. This makes them ideal for automated teller machines (ATMs) and cellular handsets. Their application areas are expected to increase further because of their plunging prices. Now they are being tried for retail and restaurant systems, public information displays, control automation systems, customer self-service, scientific applications, and digital jukeboxes. Other potential application areas include ticket sales in movie theatres and airports.
