NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- "The adoption of e-compass sensors in the consumer electronics products such as smartphones, tablets and wearables would drive the e-compass market."The e-compass market size, in terms of value, is expected to grow from USD 808.6 million in 2015 to USD 2187.1 million by 2022, at a CAGR of 14.57% between 2016 and 2022. The e-compass sensors are a ready fit to the navigation systems installed in the portable electronic products. The miniaturization of the sensor packages to be efficiently integrated into the portable electronics products has significantly boosted the market growth in the recent times. The growth in consumption of wearable electronic devices would drive the market in coming years. The major restraint for e-compass is the presence of GPS technology as a substitute for the similar applications related with navigation. Large number of equipment these days have integrated GPS technology and as GPS technology can also be used as a navigating compass wherever the GPS signals are present, many device makers do not see the need to add additional hardware for e-compass. "Magnetoresistive technology-based e-compass sensors are readily being adopted across various applications"The market for magnetoresistive technology-based e-compass sensors is growing at the highest rate during the forecast period. The compact structure of the device and the miniaturization capacity of the tchnology has resulted in increasing adoption in the consumer electronics market. These sensors also provide fast response time which can be helpful in scenarios where the heading of the device vary at a fast rate. These features have promoted the utilization of magneto-resistive sensors across various applications.
