Global Smartphone Touch Screen Market 2015-2019

About Touch Screen

Touch screen is a two-dimensional sensing device in the form of a transparent sheet, which is integrated on devices and provides a sensing and feedback system. It is a display screen that is sensitive to the touch of a finger or stylus. A touch screen consists of various layers that track and convert movements on the screen into electrical charge in the form of a signal. This signal is sent to the processor to perform the required action on the device. A touch screen requires three basic components to provide a touch interface: touch sensor, controller IC, and software driver. Of the three components, touch sensor holds high significance because it forms the interface between the display and user activities. Also, most of the R&D goes around touch sensors for enhancing the touch sensitivity. From smart phones to laptops to GPS systems, touchscreen devices are everywhere. Consumers now expect an intuitive touch experience from every new device that hits the market. Since the introduction of Apple’s iPhone in 2007, the touchscreen market has exploded.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Smartphone Touch Screen market to grow at a CAGR of 10.7 percent over the period 2014-2019.
