Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) August 24, 2013
In the second half of 2012, Apple incorporated thin-film projected capacitive touch features into its iPad Mini putting this technology into the spotlight. However, even before Apple's decision, the technology had already gained a significant share in the market due to its cost advantage. In 2011, thin-film projected capacitive touch technology accounted for 33% of touch panels used in smartphones and tablets, and this ratio rose further to approximately 40% in 2012. The considerable growth of mid-range to value-line consumer electronics products in 2013, as well as the expectation that numerous branded vendors will switch technologies, has further improved the outlook for this technology.
