Touchless sensing technology is also known as contactless sensing or gesture recognition technology. It is one of the technics that enables devices to detect and interpret human gestures and movements without physical contact. The touchless sensor helps the system to detect the biometric image and presence of humans without touching any device. The optical technology in this system detects the image, which is then scanned by a camera. The touchless system is widely used in hygiene-sensitive areas such as kitchens, hospitals, semiconductor laboratories, and washrooms. Touchless sensing technology is increasingly used in various industries, such as healthcare, automotive, consumer electronics, and home automation. Touchless sensing devices comprise capacitive sensors, ultrasonic sensors and infrared sensors. These sensors detect infrared radiation emitted by the human body and can be used to detect movements and gestures. At the same time, ultrasonic sensors use sound waves to detect the proximity of objects and can be used to detect hand movements and gestures. Touchless sensing technology provides a convenient and hygienic way to interact with devices and potentially transforms how humans interact with technology in various industries.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Touchless Sensing Market:

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly changed how people interact with their environment. People have been increasingly using touchless technologies to avoid touching surfaces that may spread the virus. Touchless sensing technology, which uses sensors to detect human motion or presence, has seen a surge in demand due to the pandemic. Touchless sensing technology has been increasingly used to minimize the spread of the virus by reducing the need for physical contact between healthcare workers and patients. For example, touchless hand sanitizers, automatic doors, and temperature sensors have been installed in hospitals and clinics to keep the environment as safe as possible.

Furthermore, in the retail industry, touchless sensing technology has been used to provide a safer shopping experience for customers. Retailers have introduced touchless payment systems, which allow customers to pay for their purchases without touching cash or a payment terminal. Additionally, retailers have implemented touchless sensors to activate automatic doors, water dispensers, and other equipment to reduce the need for physical contact, which is helpful to boost the touchless sensing market globally. However, the shutdown of semiconductor manufacturing units worldwide has increased the gap between supply and demand, reducing the sale of touchless sensors in the market.

  • North America region is dominating the global touchless sensing market. The increasing use of touchless sensing technology in healthcare and aerospace & defence sectors is expected to propel the market in the North American region. For instance, In December 2020, Quench, which is U.S. based water cooler manufacturing and provider company, launched its touchless bottle-filling machine. This newly launched machine helps end-users drink hot, cold and pure mineral water during the COVID-19 period without touching the machine. 

  • The Europe market is projected to be the fastest-growing region of touchless sensing devices globally. It is owing to the heavy use of touchless sensing devices in automobile vehicles. Furthermore, the availability of advanced automobile manufacturing units in Europe is increasing the demand for touchless sensors.

  • However, Asia Pacific is expected to show the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The increasing use of touchless sensor in the BFSI industry in countries such as India, China and Japan are driving the market. For instance, in April 2021, UIDAI successfully tested touchless biometric recognition of people for effective implementation of the COVID-19 vaccine program in the country.

  • Furthermore, Middle East & Africa and South America region is growing gradually. The ongoing smart city projects in Saudi Arabia, U.A.E., Brazil and South Africa are increasing the demand for touchless sensing technology in the region.

Analysis by End Users

Touchless sensors have gained popularity in recent years, particularly in the healthcare and automotive industries, due to their potential to reduce the spread of germs and enhance user experience. Touchless screens are particularly useful in healthcare equipment, where infection control is critical. Doctors and nurses are widely using touchless screens to access patient records and enter information without touching a keyboard or mouse, reducing the risk of spreading germs between patients. Furthermore, Touchless screens are also used in the automotive industry to enhance the driving experience and improve safety. Many modern cars have touchless screens that allow drivers to control the car's infotainment system without taking their hands off the wheel or eyes off the road, reducing the risk of accidents. Some high-end cars now feature touchless screens that can be controlled using gestures, allowing drivers to adjust settings without touching any control unit. These factors are driving the market growth globally.

This product allows end users to access touch screens without touching them.

  • In March 2022, Indian scientists from the Centre for Nano and Soft Matter Sciences (CeNS) and the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced and Scientific Research (JNCASR) introduced indigenous low-cost touch-cum-proximity sensors, which is also known as a touchless sensor. This touchless sensor helps to reduce the spread of viral deceases such as Covid-19 which is spread by touching a screen in public.  

  • In October 2021, HCS, which is a subsidiary of Haier Corporation, partnered with RF Imaging Leader Vayyar. Both organizations expanded their business through this partnership to develop touchless sensing technology in China.
