Global Touch Controller IC Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the Key vendors operating in this market.
A touch display is a computer display screen that is an input device. The screens are very sensitive to pressure, basically a user interacts with the system by touch. It is basically coated with the metallic cover that causes a change in the electrical current and get registered as a touch instruction and the information is processed and sent to the controller for further processing.
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is growth in global smartphone and tablets sales. The growth in Touch controller IC market is mainly coming in from the electronic devices, especially smartphones and tablets market. It will continue to lead the growth and the consumption of touch solutions and touch -controller ICs. Basically, the capacitive IC is used for the functions in touch screen called as touch controllers ICs.
The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is emerging flexible displays. A flexible display is the ones with an electronic visual display which is flexible in most of the electronic devices. These are the few flexible electronic displays which are existing and some are yet to come in the market in the year 2017-2018, which is going to boom the market with latest technology and new portable devices in the coming years.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is implementation challenges. The touch screen is the most important factor in determining the experience with the smartphone and tablets. The Capacitive touch screen is placed between the touch display and the touch sensors, so it can convert the analog signal into the digital signal. The capacitive is much in demand in the industry, so the designers who include capacitive touch screen to their device faces the implementation problem.
