BCC Research (http://www.bccresearch.com) reveals in its new report, MULTI-TOUCH SCREEN TECHNOLOGY, APPLICATIONS, AND GLOBAL MARKETS, the global market for multi-touch screen technology is expected to grow to $7.3 billion by 2018, with a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16%. The Asia-Pacific region is the fastest growing segment in this market, surging at a tremendous 23.1% CAGR.
Multi-touch interface technology is redefining the way consumers interact with machines and is quickly replacing keypads in personal-computing products such as smartphones and tablets. Indeed, vending machines, home appliances, vehicle control consoles, and industrial instruments increasingly feature a touch screen.
North America claims a substantial 34% of today's global market for multi-touch technologies and is expected to grow to $2.1 billion by 2018 at a CAGR of 8.6%.
However, due to an improving global economy and a shift in manufacturing, the market is quickly moving toward the Asia-Pacific region, which was valued at just $781 million in 2013 and is expected to jump to $2.2 billion in 2018.
“With the introduction of the latest generation of smart phones, the multi-touch industry is surging,” says BCC Research semiconductor market analyst Mayank Jain. “Multi-touch penetration is expected to increase dramatically in convertible/hybrid notebook PCs and over the next few years, all-in-one PCs and automobile monitors are anticipated to contribute to touch screen market growth as well. In addition, touch technologies with high transmittance, low power consumption, multi-touch or gesture recognition will benefit the most.”
Significant growth in this market will be driven by technological advances, particularly in the areas of smartphones and tablets; cost-reductions; and rising consumer demand.
