Global Non-Optical Sensors And Actuators Market For Consumer Electronics Industry Size, Share, Opportunities, COVID-19 Impact, And Trends By Type (Sensors (Pressure, Fingerprint, Magnetometer, Inertial, Others), Actuators), And By Geography - Forecasts From 2022 To 2027

Published:  Dec 2022 Report Code: KSI061612574 Pages: 110

The global non-optical sensors and actuators market for the consumer electronics industry is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.10% to reach US$3.184 billion by 2027, from US$2.248 billion in 2020. 

Consumer electronic gadgets, such as smartphones, tablets, and computers, are being outfitted with optical sensors for a variety of purposes, including device security, action recognition, and facial identification. Furthermore, increased demand for on-screen fingerprint sensor technology in smartphones will give further development prospects for the market. The need for non-optical sensors and actuators in the consumer electronics sector will increase due to increased demand for electronics throughout the world as living standards rise and the affordability of these gadgets improves. Furthermore, the prevalence of the internet in developing and undeveloped nations, as well as an increase in advertising spending, are expected to drive market expansion in the next years.

The increasing ubiquity of consumer electronic gadgets has resulted in a significant increase in demand for consumer electronic sensors.

The consumer electronics sensors market has been increasing due to several favorable characteristics such as increased demand for consumer electronics, increased internet market penetration, rising security concerns, increased energy efficiency, and government support. However, some of the challenges impeding industry expansion include a restricted local component manufacturing ecosystem, an inverted tariff structure, increased excise levies, and a variety of other concerns.

Because of the various application of non-optical sensors, the demand for non-optical sensors is expected to rise rapidly throughout the projected period.

The use of pressure sensors increases the accuracy of GPS positioning. Because of the relationship between pressure changes and height in the atmosphere, an attitude may be computed by monitoring barometric pressure. Furthermore, they are used in wearables for patient monitoring in assisted living institutions. Non-optical pressure sensors include piezo-resistive, magnetic, resonance solid-state, and capacitive sensors. Furthermore, expanded market collaborations are predicted to enhance the share of the market of pressure non-optical sensors. In addition, the rising mobile phone usage is pushing up demand for electromagnets. Crocus, a major manufacturer of magnetic sensors for the commercial, consumer electronics, and IoT industries, for example, signed a distribution agreement with Heilind Electronics, a global distributor of electrical components, in June 2021.

North America to hold a notable share

The rising rate of based smart linked devices in the US market is related to the rise. According to a Consumer Technology Association news release from January 2020, more than 69% of total homes in the United States have at least one smart home technology device, and 18% of households have at least two smart home technology items. Optical sensors are integrated into smart home equipment such as robotic systems, smart central locking, intelligent security systems, robotic vacuums, and so on.

During the forecast period, the rising trend of smart cities and smart homes is likely to help in the market expansion.

For example, at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January 2020, GE Lighting unveiled hybrid Bluetooth and Wi-Fi linked lighting and controls solutions, as well as plans to enable third parties to supply C by GE-compatible products. Furthermore, the growing use of light sensors in portable electronics is likely to drive the expansion of the light sensors market. Ams, for example, introduced a new in-display light source and distance sensor technology for smartphones with OLED screens in January 2019. The TCS3701 module has an RGB light and infrared proximity sensor that monitors the ambient intensity of light through an OLED display.

Key Market Developments

  • In October 2022 - OmniVision, a global leader in semiconductor solutions such as advanced digital imaging, analog, and touch & showcase technology, announced the new OS05B CMOS sensor, which manages to combine the finest pixel new tech and quantum efficiency in a 5-megapixel configuration for professional and higher customer security cameras such as manufacturing and factory surveillance technology, webcams, and high-end baby monitors. The PureCel Plus technology is used in the OS05B's 2.0-micron BSI pixel, which features a 1/2.78-inch optical format. It also has OmniVision's Nyxel near-infrared technology, which provides sharp, clear pictures in low-light environments.

Product Offerings

  • The piezoelectric product range of CTS Corporation has been expanded to include small multilayer actuators that can work at voltages as low as 45 V. Medical implants, micro-positioning, and consumer electronics devices are among the uses for this product. CTS multilayer piezoelectric actuators are offered in a variety of diameters and voltage ratings, extending the multilayer range for low voltage and small sizes. The business has also indicated that it would provide new capabilities for producing elements smaller than 2 mm in size and capable of working at lower voltages.
  • MagnaChip Semiconductor Corporation, a Korean semiconductor firm with a diverse portfolio of analog and mixed-signal products and technologies, provides a complete line of MXsensor intelligent sensor product families with 0.18-micron mixed signal and analog technology and low power consumption. The MXsensor families are aimed toward the rising market for smartphones, tablets, navigation applications, and others.
