About Display Controller
Display controller is an integrated circuit (IC) that forms a key component in video signal generators. The IC in a video signal generator produces a video signal in a computing device or game system. Display controllers are the main components of the video signal generator logic, which generates the blanking interval signal and the horizontal and vertical synchronization signals. The display controller IC is a key component of a display screen. Therefore, the demand for display screens and touch devices directly influences the demand for display controllers.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global display controller market to grow at a CAGR of 9.49% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global display controller market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sale of display controllers.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Display Controller Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global display controller market: STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments, SAMSUNG DISPLAY, LG Display, and Toshiba.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Barco, FUJITSU, Intersil, Kent Displays, Novatek Microelectronics, and Seiko Epson.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is interest in large-size screen products. The size of the display screen is a major buying criterion during the purchase of consumer devices such as monitors, notebooks, tablets, and TVs. Large screen sizes allow customers to have a better viewing experience during video streaming or online video games. The LCD screen size for tablets, for instance, has increased from 7-10 inches to 10-13 inches over the last few years.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is technological developments in LCDs. The display industry is constantly evolving and is characterized by changing consumer behavior. As a result, display manufacturers continue to innovate and develop multiple technologies and products such as display panels with in-plane switching (IPS) technology and LCDs based on quantum dots technology. The light source for conventional LCDs includes a cold-cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL). One of the major developments in LCDs is the introduction of quantum dot displays.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is implementation challenges. The touchscreen is the most important factor in determining user experience in smartphones and tablets. Although the demand for capacitive touchscreens in various industries increased in 2016, designers who fit these touchscreens in various devices face challenges in implementation. This is because capacitive touchscreens in devices need to satisfy many requirements simultaneously, such as robustness and responsiveness. Most of the time, the requirements conflict with each other as they rely on a hardware-centric approach.
