Selected Value Chain Analysis done in the full report

  • The process of value addition initiates with the raw material suppliers of substrate materials, electrode materials, conductive inks, polymers and so on. 
  • Substrate manufacturers procure the raw materials from these suppliers for the production of substrate tapes, reels and other form factors.
  • The printed, flexible, and stretchable electronics equipment manufacturers supply the equipment and provide related services to the substrate manufacturers.
  • The substrates are then procured by the system integrators, especially in case of mapping array along with auxiliary components from respective suppliers such as enclosure suppliers, connectors and so on for assembling the final module.
  • These modules are further either shipped to the third party distributors or OEM’s own distribution centers. The products are first shipped to the regional distribution hub from where it is further sent to the local distribution centers.
  • Owing to the infancy stage of the market, the distribution network is not yet well diversified. So, the majority of the modules are directly procured by the end users through the system integrators’ own distribution network.
  • The regulatory bodies play an important role in the supply chain and these bodies are responsible for the compliance of material usage regulations which influences the price of these sensors.
  • The universities and independent research firms are also one of the prominent stakeholders in the value chain as these bodies hold IP licenses for the tactile sensor substrate, modules, production techniques and equipment, end products and so on.
  • Finally, the sensor modules are procured by various players of end user verticals including automotive, consumer electronics, industrial and so on, for final integration into the end products.

Excerpts on Market Growth Factors

  • Industrial machine control interface with Multi Touch Features and increasing safety concerns in the automotive sector are expected to propel the Tactile Sensors Market in the future.
  • Industrial is projected to dominate the overall tactile sensors market in terms of value with a share of approximately 39% in 2023 and by volume, consumer electronics industry will be the pioneer in the overall tactile sensors market and is projected to account for the volume share of 43% in 2023 with the volume contribution of 2.7 billion units by 2023 owing to increasing demand for the smartphones & other consumer electronics especially from APAC region.

Key players of Tactile Sensors Market:

  • Tekscan is the leading manufacturer in the tactile sensors market, contributing to nearly 18.1% share in terms of revenue. Tekscan through its broad range of services, constant product launches and innovation have been successful in catering to a variety of customers, consequently maintaining their hold over their competitors. 
  • Since the Companies are focusing to upgrade their product with new innovations, many small suppliers easily penetrate the market. The result of which, major suppliers have not been able to gain a stronghold in the market.
  • However, monitoring their future business involvements, IndustryARC analysts expect companies such as Tekscan, Inc. (U.S.), Pressure Profile Systems, Inc. (U.S.), SynTouch, Inc. (U.S.) Weiss Robotics GmbH & Co. KG (Germany), NextInput, Inc. (U.S.), Romheld Automation Pty Ltd (Australia) and more to maintain their market position in the coming future.
  • Stantum S.A.S and Olympus Corporation are the leading companies in the number of patents, followed by various other companies.
