Summary Methodology

Touch Screen Controller Market size is predicted to grow exponentially over the coming years with the rise in the adoption of these components in the automobile industry. The growing integration of several new technologies, such as on-board diagnostics, rear seat entertainment systems, and head-up displays, into vehicles with advanced displays is creating the need and requirement of these components to provide advanced touch panel to customers for offering interactive displays. The growing importance of these products can also be witnessed in the aerospace and aircraft industry. In the aerospace industry, the control and operations of several processes, such as launch, traffic control, and simulation, are controlled by computers with these display panels. This is augmenting the touch screen controller market.

The flourishing smart wearables market is encouraging developers in the touch screen controller market to design components, which can be integrated into these devices. The growing penetration of touch-enabled devices has increased the demand for these components. Smartwatch manufacturers are introducing touchscreen features in their devices. For instance, Armani has launched several products such as Touchscreen Smartwatch 5000, Touchscreen Smartwatch 5001, and Touchscreen Smartwatch 5004. These products have built-in technology and are attracting the customers to get a new experience of these features, propelling the market.

The trend of online payments and increased acceptance of credit & debit cards for transactions in the retail and other businesses are creating a demand for point of sale devices. POS manufacturers are introducing touchscreens in their products for enhancing user experience, ensuing the touch screen controller market. Tablet-based POS solutions are exhibiting high growth due to the high adoption of these devices in the retail sector, contributing significantly toward market growth.

Large power consumption and low refresh rate are some of the factors restricting the growth of the touch screen controller market. Refresh rate is the number of times in a second that a display hardware updates its buffer, which is reported back by the device to the user. Several electrical devices, such as POS and drawing pads, require high rates for better efficiency and performance. It becomes difficult for large touchpads for maintaining the fast refresh rate due to the large surface area of scree. Large power consumption of devices due to these components is also a restraint in the market. These display panels consume a lot of battery for managing the refresh rate and carrying out several functions.

Capacitive controllers accounted for a significant market share of the touch screen controller market. They are widely used in mobile phones, mp3 players, household appliances, and several industrial products. The advantages of the integration of these components are attractive product design, durability, robust housing design, and cost-effectiveness. These components provide high reliability, performance, and durability than resistive controllers. This is the reason for the adoption of these components for better performance of smart devices while providing customer values and new technological advancements in their offerings. Capacitive controller glass panel is covered by a capacitive layer of static charge, which senses the charge variations when touched.


Application of these controllers in the consumer electronics segment of the touch screen controller market is increasing the demand and requirement of these components. The integration of this product in mobile phones proved to be a great success for the mobile phone industry, which was tapped by other developers. With the success of the integration of these components into mobiles, several other devices were also integrated with these functions such as smart TVs, tablets, PCs, and smartwatches. This proved to be the revolution in the market and a great success & opportunity. With the increase in the manufacture and growth of smart devices’ industry, increase in the need and requirement of these functions can be seen in the market.
