The multi-touch sensing market is expected to grow substantially over the forecast period, which can be attributed to increased development of innovative technologies in the multi-touch product lines. Multi-touch sensing demand is expected to increase significantly in hybrid/convertible notebook PCs over the forecast period due to the advent of touch technologies with low power consumption, gesture recognition, and high transmittance. Growing use of multi-touch technology is also expected to increase in industrial instruments, home appliances, vehicle control consoles and vending machines.
In laptops, smartphones, and tablets, significant developments have been carried out to make the touchscreens and trackpads capable of recognizing the application of two or more points of contact with the surface for implementing advanced functionality such as launching programs, pinch-zoom, and screen rotation. Such developments coupled with increased number of corporate buyers are conducive to market growth. Increasing average costs and shortage of indium tin oxide (ITO), which is used as a conducting material, are some of the factors expected to inhibit the multi-touch sensing market growth. Emerging retail, advertising and media applications, and the combination of multi-touch technology with video calling and 3D imaging pose to be the key opportunities to the multi-touch sensing market.
North America and Europe are expected to emerge as significant revenue generators owing to high percolation of multi-touch sensing technology due to several innovations. Asia Pacific is expected to witness high growth throughout the next six years owing to growing demand for sophisticated equipment exhibiting multi-functional trackpads and touchscreens.
Multi-touch sensing can be segmented in the market on the basis of technology and product. Technologies deployed can be bifurcated into opaque multi-touch and transparent multi-touch. Multi-touch includes infrared, camera-based, capacitive, resistive, acoustic, embedded and vision-based multi technology. Prominent product incorporating multi-touch technology include IT electronics, consumer electronics, large interactive screens, and ATMs/ hospitality counters.
Key multi-touch sensing market players include Cypress Semiconductor Corporation, Hewlett Packard Company, Microsoft Corporation, Stantum, Wintek Corporation, TPK Holding, and Samsung Electronics.
