Multi Touch Screen Market Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2019 – 2027


Multi touch screen display provides a collaborative workspace for user to perform multi touch operations. Multi touch technology used in such displays are responsible for detecting and responding to more than one or two point of contact on its surface at the same time. It has an interactive user interface such as windows, icon, menus and pointers which allow users to control the digital environment inside the gadget directly or indirectly using their bare fingers or palm. Such type of screens are used in smartphones, tablets, laptops, smart TVs, smart-watches, etc.  As the demand for these devices is very high, multi touch screens that are used in these devices are growing impressively across the globe.  

Multi touch sensing ability of the screen is possible due to the presence of an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) sensors that are attached to the touch screen. It enables an user to perform multiple finger gestures such as zoom-in or zoom-out by double tapping on the screen, scrolling the page up-down, swiping left or right to go on previous or next page, swiping the three fingers or palm to take a quick screenshot, etc. Apart from these features, multi touch screens also provide better resolution and clarity of characters such as text, video, photos, satellite images, 3D simulations, etc., which gives an enhanced user-experience.

Increasing adoption of multi touch screen displays and growing investments from major companies like Apple Inc., Microsoft Corporation, etc. is projected to drive the global multi touch screens market in the years to come. Major companies are now focusing on offering multi-touch display with a see-through screen. This technological advancement is expected to provide lucrative opportunities to the market in the near future.

In terms of geography, Asia-Pacific is the largest and fastest growing multi touch screens market worldwide. The growth of this region is mainly accredited to the large number of working age population and popularity of smart devices among them. The original equipments manufacturers (OEMs) are establishing their manufacturing unit in developing countries, as they provide cheap labour and availability of raw material at lower cost. Moreover, the presence of some major players including Fujitsu Ltd., Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd, Alps Electric Co. Ltd., Panasonic Corporation, etc. is further enhancing the regional market growth.

On the other hand, high cost of glass touch displays and lack of availability of Indium tin oxide, one of the key material that is required in manufacturing of multi touch screen displays are some of the factors expected to hinder the market growth.
