Next Generation Haptics: A Global Multi-Client Research Initiative
San Jose, California (PRWEB) September 11, 2013
Follow us on LinkedIn – In the coming months, GIA will complete an extensive secondary and primary research program involving some of the industry’s leading players and experts. The study will examine key drivers and trends impacting the market such as growing demand for mobile phone haptics as mirrored in the increased use of haptic touch screens; expanding application areas beyond mobile computing devices and personal computers; migration from 1st and 2nd generation haptics to 3rd and 4th generation haptics; emerging opportunities for haptics in robotics especially service robotics; technology developments that fuel improvements in tactile feedbacks for a more richer media experience; increasing demand for richer gaming and media experiences and increasing adoption of touch screen enabled devices in the automotive sector.
The importance of tactile feedback in mobile phones, medical surgical devices, video gaming devices, and equipment simulation, among others, is gradually gaining in prominence. Defined as the human perception of the environment through the sense of touch, next generation haptics are built upon psychophysics of touch and revolves around providing a tactile feedback system that produces a realistic user interface. Essentially a user interface (UI) system based on the sense of touch, haptic interfaces enable effective person to machine communications. The technology currently finds high volume application in mobile phones and represent an integral component in modern day touch screen devices. Haptic touch screens provide tactile feedback to the user interacting with various user interface elements on a touchscreen device. Haptics aids in notifying the user that the input has been registered by the device and also provide tactile dimension to games played on touchscreen devices. Explosive proliferation of smartphones and increasing consumer demand for advanced features is driving manufacturers to incorporate haptic feedback on latest devices.
Ongoing research efforts are enabling the development of HD haptics that is set to enhance the functionality of touchscreen devices. Virtual reality, holographic interaction, and medical devices represent promising future application areas for next generation haptics. The rise in non-invasive surgeries is especially poised to benefit the application of haptics to provide tactile feedback for robot assisted minimally invasive surgical systems.
The study estimates the global Next Generation Haptics market to be a multi-million dollar market, while more precise market-size and growth projections for a 14-year period will be made available during the 2nd stage of report preparation, and data analysis.
The research and analyses will be released shortly in the form of a comprehensive research report. The report by design will attempt to provide exhaustive analysis, data, trends, market share, market size, statistics, forecasts and competitive intelligence. The report is modeled to offer precise and unbiased, actionable market insights including in-depth segmentation of market sub-sectors, demand estimates and projections and analysis of trends in each of the sectors, identification of leading players, and the competitive structure, among others.
Developed for Manufacturers/Vendors, Strategic Planners, Business Development Executives, Management Consultants, Investment Bankers, Consulting Firms, Marketing & Sales Executives, C-Level Decision Makers, Market Strategists and Technology Domain Experts, the report helps identify the biggest opportunities in this space and offers accurate latent demand forecasting that empowers quantitative decision making among existing market players and new entrants.
