Haptic Technology Market Dynamics:

Driver: Rising integration of haptic technology into consumer devices

Haptics is widely used in consumer devices to enhance the sensation, performance, and overall contribution of achieving touchscreen accuracy. The growing use of consumer devices such as wearables, smartphones, tablets, smart homes, and virtual reality hardware is a major factor contributing to the market’s growth. As most consumer devices are touch-enabled appliances integrated with haptics, the demand for haptic-based solutions is expected to increase significantly in the next five years.

Restraint: High cost of force feedback technology

Haptics that use tactile interfaces are majorly integrated into consumer devices and are not higher in cost than force feedback haptic devices. The major setback for the haptic technology market is the high cost of its force feedback devices used in the medical, automotive, aerospace, and manufacturing industries and supports assistive learning. Force feedback haptics requires efficient and effective devices with suitable features for running the haptic technology. They are categorized based on degrees of freedom (DoF) into 3DoF, 6DoF, and 7DoF. They allow the users to sense real-time virtual haptics while using them in various applications.

Opportunity: Rising applications of haptic technology in aerospace & defense industry

The adoption of mid-air haptics has increased in several industries, such as aerospace & defense. It is planned to be used in simulated pilot training or virtual reality flight decks to overcome the high cost and inefficiency that most airlines face. Mid-air haptic feedback technology will allow pilots to focus on other operations like monitoring the cockpit displays and other attention-grabbing monitors, even if it means drawing away the pilot’s attention from the view out of the window. Besides, haptics also has the potential to improve the safety of the environment, quality of pilot training, and flight experience for the pilot and the passengers.

Challenge: High power consumption in haptic feedback

One of the major challenges the market players face is the high-power consumption of haptic feedback. The haptic mechanism in phones drains the battery, keeping users from gaining tactile feedback benefits.  All battery power is required to run the motor, which triggers haptic feedback leading to high power consumption. This is expected to hinder the growth of haptic technology providers. Eccentric Rotating Mass (ERM) consumes a higher energy rate than Linear Resonant Actuator (LRA).
