Global Capacitive Touchscreen Market 2015-2019
Market outlook of the global capacitive touchscreen market
Capacitive screen displays rely on the electrical properties of the human body to detect touches. These displays can be controlled with very light touches and generally cannot be used with a mechanical stylus or a gloved hand. The global market for capacitive touchscreens is positively influenced by factors like the growing smartphone and tablet market and is expected to post a healthy market growth rate of more than 7% by 2019.
The increasing screen size of smart devices is a key driver for the growth of this market. Consumers nowadays prefer large-screen devices because of their enhanced visual experience and ease of operability. This augmented preference for large-screen handsets in the medium to large-scale price segment is expected to foster market growth during the forecast period.
Application-based segmentation of the capacitive touchscreen market
Technavio’s market research analyst has estimated the smartphones and tablets segment to dominate over all other segments during the forecast period. High market share of the smartphones segment can be attributed to the growing number of internet users and the development of 3G and 4G infrastructures during the forecast period.
Geographical segmentation of the capacitive touchscreen market
In this market study, analysts envisage the APAC region to dominate over all other geographies during the forecast period. Factors like the presence of leading smartphone and tablet manufacturers in this region is expected to result in APAC’s high market share of more than 79% during the forecast period.
Competitive landscape and key vendors
Competition in this market is intense due to the presence of multiple large and small vendors. As most of the vendors are located in and around the APAC region, it acts as a potential market for touchscreens during the forecast period. Additionally, vendors in this market are establishing partnerships with their customers to sustain themselves in the market. This recent increase in partnerships is expected to shape the competitive landscape of the market during the forecast period.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Capacitive Touchscreen Market 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Capacitive Touchscreen Market: Nissha Printing, TPK, Wintek and Young Fast Optoelectronics
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AU Optronics, HannsTouch Solution, Innolux, Iljin Display, MELFAS, and Truly Semiconductors.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Multi-touch allows two or more fingers to be used on the screen at the same time. Apple first introduced the technology by using it to allow pinching and stretching gestures for zoom control. Multi-touch is seen in capacitive touchscreen displays as resistive touchscreen displays do not support this feature. It can be seen as a replacement for keypads.”
According to the report, the growth of smartphones and tablets is one of the major drivers in the global capacitive touchscreen market. The declining ASP of smartphones and tablets has made them more affordable for consumers and the penetration into the market is expected to increase during the forecast period 2015-2019.
Further, the report states that the high cost of ITO involved in the production of capacitive touchscreens results in a high price for such screens, hindering the profits and revenue margins for the vendors.
