Global Touch Sensor Market 2016-2020
About Touch Sensor
A touchscreen is integrated into devices for providing a sensing and feedback system. These screens need three basic components to provide a touch interface: a touch sensor, a controller integrated circuit (IC), and a software driver. An integral part of a touchscreen, a touch sensor is a two-dimensional sensing device in the form of a transparent sheet. A touch sensor forms the interface between the display and the user. There have been significant R&D efforts to enhance touch sensors’ sensitivity.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global touch sensor market to grow at a CAGR of 9.3% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global touch sensor market for 2015-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the shipment of touch sensors by technology (resistive, capacitive, and others) worldwide for these application segments:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Touch Sensor Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Touch Sensor Market: 3M, Freescale Semiconductor, Honeywell, Infineon, ON Semiconductor and Texas Instruments
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Atmel, Cypress Semiconductor, FUJITSU, Banpil Photonics, BeanAir, and, and Siemens.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Multi-touch allows the use of two or more fingers on the screen at the same time, and can replace the keyboard. Apple introduced the technology to enable touch gestures like pinching and stretching for zoom control on its devices. Multi-touch is seen in capacitive touchscreen displays, but resistive touchscreen displays do not support this feature. Samsung, Google, Dell, HP, and Apple use multi-touch screens as unique selling propositions to market their products. As a result, the demand for capacitive touch sensors is increasing across mobile computing devices.”
According to the report, the global tablet market is likely to grow significantly during the forecast period. The higher demand for Apple’s iPads and the large growth potential of tablets based on Android have prompted many leading mobile and PC original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to enter the tablet market.
Further, the report states that the mobile computing device manufacturers are focusing on reducing their overall production costs because of changing consumer preferences. This will negatively impact the growth of the market.
