Touchscreen Controller Market by Technology (Resistive & Capacitive), Interface (I2C, SPI, USB), Touchscreen Technology (Single-Touch & Multi-Touch), Screen Size (Small & Medium, and Large), Application, and Geography - Global Forecast to 2022
“The growing integration of touchscreens in automobiles would drive the touchscreen controller market”
The touchscreen controller market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 15.2% between 2016 and 2022 to reach USD 9.11 billion by 2022. The touchscreen controller market is driven by factors such as the trends of touchscreen infotainment systems, and touch-based control panels in commercial and non-commercial vehicle. Moreover, the increasing demand for touchscreen in wearable devices and growing demand for capacitive touchscreen controllers owing to the benefits they offer would further drive the market.
“Capacitive technology to witness maximum growth during the forecast period”
One of the major application of capacitive touchscreen as well as controller are found in various devices in consumer electronics applications such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, wearable devices, and others. Besides, capacitive touchscreen controllers are durable, more reliable, and provide better operation through its multiple functionalities than resistive touch controllers. Smartphones and tablets are the largest application area for capacitive touchscreen controllers and are expected to further drive the market at the highest rate.
“Asia-Pacific to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period”
The presence of a number of leading consumer electronics manufacturers such as Sony Corp. (Japan), Samsung SDI Co., Ltd. (South Korea), and Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. (China) among others in the region is one of the key factors driving the APAC market for touchscreen controllers. Furthermore, along with the rapid industrialization in this region, the growth in the production of commercial as well as non-commercial vehicles with touch infotainment systems and touch control panels is also expected to drive the touchscreen controller market.
