Global Handset Proximity Sensors Market: Overview

Modern smartphones are packed with a number of sensors that enable them to collect a variety of different kinds of data on who the user is, what the user is doing, and more. Most sensors are added to make smartphones more engaging, convenient, and increasingly useful for the user. Handset proximity sensors are commonly found in touchscreen smartphones and play the primary role of disabling accidental touch events.

Touch-enabled screens in smartphones often face the issue of touch events such as the cheek or ear coming in contact with the screen while on a call. To solve the issue, manufacturers have started placing proximity sensors close to the phone’s speaker, which detect any activity in the vicinity of the speaker. Typically, the phone assumes the touch events to be accidental and ignores them, avoiding any unwanted inputs or the activation of any other functions on the smartphone in the background.

As smartphones take the world by storm and competition among vendors continues to become increasingly severe, manufacturers are placing increased focus on making their products better than their counterparts’ by introducing innovative features. The addition of proximity sensors is among one such attempts at making smartphones, especially the ones with touch-enables screens, more convenient for use. Over the past some years, proximity sensors have become a norm in most smartphones and the market for these tiny elements has seen a huge surge.
