DUBLIN, Feb. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Touch Sensor Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.

The global touch sensor market to grow at a CAGR of 9.3% during the period 2016-2020.

A touchscreen is integrated into devices for providing a sensing and feedback system. These screens need three basic components to provide a touch interface: a touch sensor, a controller integrated circuit (IC), and a software driver. An integral part of a touchscreen, a touch sensor is a two-dimensional sensing device in the form of a transparent sheet. A touch sensor forms the interface between the display and the user. There have been significant R&D efforts to enhance touch sensors' sensitivity.

The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global touch sensor market for 2015-2020. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

According to the report, the global tablet market is likely to grow significantly during the forecast period. The higher demand for Apple's iPads and the large growth potential of tablets based on Android have prompted many leading mobile and PC original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to enter the tablet market.

Further, the report states that the mobile computing device manufacturers are focusing on reducing their overall production costs because of changing consumer preferences. This will negatively impact the growth of the market.

To calculate the market size, the report considers the shipment of touch sensors by technology (resistive, capacitive, and others) worldwide for these application segments:

  • Smartphones
  • Tablets
  • Laptops
  • Monitors
  • All-in-one (AIO) PCs
  • Others (point of sale (POS), public displays, music players, gaming consoles, and personal digital assistants (PDAs))
