2014-02-21 13:21:01 - Touch Screen Modules: Technologies, Markets, Forecasts 2012-2022 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
Along with the leading technology, projected capacitive touch, the industry has a dozen other ways of building a touch screen, but not all of them are suitable for the rapidly growing consumer electronics market that needs high performance and high clarity. Every single one of the 15 different touch technologies has its own strengths and weaknesses and is therefore used in very different applications.
Hence, there will not be just one technology in the next decade, but a few that clearly lead the market. Even more so, since touch interfaces are added to more and more existing and new applications with display sizes ranging from only a few inches to over 150 inches. The next game changer will be alternatives for
indium tin oxide (ITO) widely used as touch screen sensor material, which is comparably expensive due to the high price of the rare raw material indium. This will not only change the cost structure, but also open the gate to bendable, rollable and stretchable electronics with touch functionality.
The market for touch screens is already large because touch screens have been around for quite a while in ATMs, point-of-sales terminals and Kiosks for example, all rather specialised touch applications. Only a few years ago the true mass consumer market use of touch screens was conditioned by Apple´s adoption of projected capacitive touch screen technology for the iPhone in 2007. After this other global players, such as Samsung and LG Electronics, also started to use touch technology for their wide range of products. And today, touch screen interfaces are becoming increasingly common in mobile consumer devices.
