Impact Analysis of Covid-19

The complete version of the Report will include the impact of the COVID-19, and anticipated change on the future outlook of the industry, by taking into the account the political, economic, social, and technological parameters.

A capacitive sensor is a non-contact device that is used to detect virtually the presence or absence of an object. They are less expensive and non-directional sensors used for non-contact detection of metallic and non-metallic objects. Capacitive sensor technology is used to measure flow, level, pressure, linear position, angle position, etc. The high-resolution sensing capability of capacity sensors makes them highly popular in measurement and detection of position, acceleration, proximity, and fluid level.  Capacitive sensors do not require any physical contact with the materials and they can operate on the principle of the capacitor. Capacity sensors are used in consumer electronics, oil & gas and in industries such as automotive and healthcare. Moreover, the increasing demand for consumer electronics such as mobile devices, tablets, smartphones, and keypads is expected to drive the market growth during the forecast period. These sensors offer high accuracy, great stability and improved sensitivity.

The global capacitive sensor market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period (2020–2027) due to increasing adoption of capacitive sensors in consumer electronics such as smartphone, mobile devices, tablets and others. The increasing penetration of Internet of Things in emerging economies is driving demand for smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices. For instance, according to Coherent Market Insights analysis, the penetration of smartphones in China increased from 696.5 million in 2017 to 786.3 million in 2020. The main factor facilitating demand for capacitive sensors is the increasing number of smartphone manufacturers. For instance, in March 2020, Samsung launched Samsung Galaxy M21 in India. The new galaxy smartphone comes with various features such as a rear camera with 48 mega pixel primary sensor and 5 mega pixel depth sensor. Furthermore, the touch screen has become the most preferred interface for mobile devices. Smart wearables such as smart watches are using capacitive sensor technology in order to offer good user experience. Moreover, growing demand for augmented reality and virtual reality is also driving the market growth during the forecast period. Demand for augmented and virtual reality is  driven by the rising penetration of smartphones in emerging economies and developed countries.

Capacitive Sensor Market - Impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic

Several countries across the globe have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and governments have announced nationwide lockdowns to curb the spread of the virus. The growth of the capacitive sensor market has been hampered as capacitive sensors are used in many industries such as aerospace & defense, automotive, oil & gas and many others. Demand and price of crude oil have fallen due to lockdowns. Most companies have witnessed a slowdown in their manufacturing operations due to the pandemic. For instance, in March 2020, the price of crude oil decreased from US$ 61.06 to US$ 23.36 in the U.S. Moreover, international and domestic travel has been banned which has led to a significant decline in the consumption of aviation turbine fuel across the globe. Capacitive sensors are used in the aerospace & defense sector in the thrust reverser and power door operating systems.
