This Frost & Sullivan research report titled "Opportunities for Sensors in Consumer Electronics" provides an insight into the recent advances in the field of sensors for consumer electronics along with the emerging application areas. In this research, Frost & Sullivan’s analysts examine the following sectors: mobile phones, game consoles, television, and laptops.
The rising demand for multifunctional personal electronics devices and intuitive applications has revved up demand levels for sensors. Large-scale deployment of sensors is being witnessed in mobile devices, media players, game consoles, and cameras. New opportunities are unfolding for novel applications, including gesture recognition, motion sensing, location sensing, and fingerprint biometrics. Gesture-based interfaces have triggered a surge in applications in the mobile gaming and personal devices sectors, and are set to change the way user interfaces are designed. These interfaces are likely to transform mass advertising solutions in the retail business.
Although the outlook for the market is upbeat, some challenges are restraining market progression, according to the research firm. Privacy issues have emerged as a critical concern in location-based sensing. Considering the massive amount of personal information available online, the risk of susceptibility to crimes such as stolen identity is greatly amplified.
Going forward, several technologies are poised to shape the consumer electronics space in the near future. Accelerometers and gyroscopes have conventionally been the forte of the automotive and aviation industries; however, the uptake of these sensors is likely to pick up steam in the consumer electronics space.
