)-- Touch screens in mobile devices are the interface between users and devices that enable an easy interaction and visual experience. The use of touch screen technology in smartphones, tablets, laptops, mobile phones, and other portable information devices is gaining momentum. Touch screens enable the user to interact freely with the device without any hassles and with strong control. In the current scenario, most touch screen based mobile devices are equipped with multi-touch technology. This is due to the ability of multi-touch screens to provide better functionalities (interaction ability) than single touch screens. Multi-touch enables the users to experience ease of zooming, scrolling or rotating the screens.
The touch screen in mobile devices market is segmented on the basis of the type of technologies used for developing the screen, type of device and geography. There are basically four types of touch screen technologies used for mobile devices, namely, capacitive touch screen, resistive touch screen, surface acoustic wave touch screen and infrared touch screens. Capacitive touch screens account for the major share in mobile devices market owing to its less cost as compared to other touch screen technologies and it durability in harsh environment. The touch screens are controlled by using an internal circuitry called touch screen controllers. These controllers are designed depending upon the type of touch screen technology. In addition to the controls, the touch screen operations are based on other components such as touch screen software drivers and touch screen sensors. The type of portable devices using touch screens include smartphones, tablets, laptops, smart watches and other portable devices. The Smartphone segment contributes maximum to the units of shipments of touch screens in mobile devices market. Owing to the high growth rate of smartphone market in Africa, Asia and Middle East, the touch screen market is expected to show high growth across these regions over the forecast period.
The touch screen in mobile devices market is primarily driven by the rising adoption of smartphones across the globe. The market is expected to show high growth rate owing to the emergence of new touch screen devices such as tablets and smart wearable devices. Additionally, with entry of low cost smartphone manufacturers, the availability of smartphones with touch screens at affordable prices has increased manifold, thereby further boosting the growth of the touch screen market. However, the extra cost involved in protecting the screen from the dirt and scratches is hindering the growth of the market. The impact of this restraint is expected to minimize over the coming years due to technological advancement is screen protections solutions. For instance the screen protections films such as Gorilla Glass, Dragontail and Xensation are developed to protect the screens on the mobile devices. However, the market has tremendous growth opportunities in developing countries of Africa, Asia and Middle East where the market for mobile devices is at nascent stage and is expected to grow at high rates.
