Global Capacitive Sensor Market – Overview

A capacitive sensor is a type of proximity sensor which detects nearby objects through electrical field generated by the sensor. The sensing technology is based on capacitive coupling in which the input capacitance is obtained from the human body. A capacitive sensor can be constructed by combination of plates which holds the electric charge. Capacitive sensors have the ability to adjust sensitivity or threshold level of the input. The increase in sensitivity results in greater operating distance. Temperature, humidity and dirt can cause effect in case of big changes in sensitivity.

The capacitive sensors can be categorized on the basis of targets such as conductive and non-conductive capacitors. Metal and liquids such as water, blood are mainly targeted in conductive capacitors which are having high di-electric strength. The non-conductive category acts as insulator to the electrode of sensors. Materials with high di-electric such as dust, water and paper affects the sensing distance. When a voltage is applied, electric field is emitted from every surface of the conductor, behind the sensing area the probe is used to collect the emitted signals and helps in detection or unlocking the device.

The global Capacitive Sensor Market is anticipated to grow rapidly through the forecast period. The increase in usage of consumer electronics embedded with finger print technology in the devices is driving the market. The increasing use of scratch resistant glasses in consumer electronics and the decrease in size of the capacity sensors are fuelling the market growth. The shortage in materials such as Indium tin oxide which is used for manufacturing of sensors is hindering the market growth.
