Capacitive Stylus Pen Market Analysis by Key Manufacturers, Regions to 2023

Market Synopsis

A stylus is an input device used for writing or drawing text lines for monitors and tablets. In CAD/ CAM workstations, the stylus is attached to a tablet and later implemented as common stylus for mobile phones and touchscreen laptops. Stylus will have finer touch points which will help in increasing precision of small touch points on the screen. For a capacitive stylus, a capacitive screen capable of producing electrostatic field is placed on the surface of the tablet. On applying pressure on the screen, the electrostatic field gets distorted. The processor at the end will detect these distortions and collects the field currents there by figuring where the pressure is applied. For this phenomenon, the capacitive styluses are made wide enough to generate capacitance for the screen to register. These styluses can be integrated with both Android and iOS and Windows operating systems and devices. The capacitive styluses are cheap and don’t require any batteries to work.

The demand for interactive whiteboard and stylus pen across the education sector, technological advancements in mobile devices and tablets are driving the global Capacitive Stylus Pen Market. The lack of multiple input sensing in tablets or mobile phones is hindering the market growth.

Wacom Co., Ltd. Japanese manufacturer specialized in tablets, and related products are offering capacitive stylus technology for Microsoft and Samsung. Microsoft Corporation, a leading American Multinational company’s flagship model Surface Pro is equipped with Wacom’s capacitive stylus technology. The screen consists of the digitized layer which is used for capacitive pen known as surface pro Pen. The surface pro is having quite essential features such as pressure sensitivity, no battery use, palm recognition and many more. While using a stylus, user hands can easily get a touch on the screen. Microsoft Surface Pro neglects the palm impressions by the user when the stylus is being used. The screen can detect the variations in the pressure inputs, and the stylus is capable of producing 1024 levels of pressure. The Microsoft Surface Pro Pen is having some additional features like it contains eraser at the other end which can be useful in erasing the text on the screen. The digitizer layer can also detect when the user is hovering the pen over the screen, allowing to perform hover actions like select, copy and more.
