Touch Controller IC Market - Global Forecast & Analysis (2011 – 2016) By Technology (ASIC, MCU, Custom Controllers, & Analogue Controllers), By Products Types (Resistive, Capacitive, Optical, Infrared, In-Cell, & On-Cell), By Applications (Entertainment, Infotainment, Retail, Education, Medical, Banking, &  Industrial), & By Geography (North America, Europe, APAC, & ROW

The touch controller IC market is experiencing a high growth due to the emergence of natural user interface (NUI) devices and is being predominantly driven by the rapid penetration of touch systems in consumer electronics. The market segmentation revolves around the four major market parameters, namely; products, applications, technology, and geography.

In 2011, revenue of the touch controller market was only 0.4% of the total semiconductor industry, which grossed $312.5 billion in the same year. By the year 2016, this share is expected to increase to 1.65%. This indicates increase in the adoption of touch controller IC for various applications. As more number of touch screen products is made available, the market will see growth in verticals such as retail, ticketing, smart advertisement, and interactive displays.

This market is mapped against geography in two different types; one, according to the demand shown by the particular region and, second, according to the supply of the touch controllers from various regions. The geography is divided in to four regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World (ROW). The demand analysis gives insight about the four regions considered. APAC’s demand is expected to grow at an astonishing CAGR of 50%, calculated from the year 2011 to 2016. The supply analysis shows the skewed figures; with more than 60% of the supply of touch controller ICs coming from North America. Most of the major touch controller IC manufacturers are headquartered in the U.S., and therefore North America has the increased share in supply. By the year 2016, the demand for the touch controller ICs from North America, Europe, and APAC is expected to account approximately 30% each.

The applications for this market are broadly divided in to three segments; consumer application, commercial application, and industrial application. Each of the application segments is further divided in to the specific application such as retail, education, transport, medical, entertainment, and infotainment. There is a large imbalance observed in the revenues contributed by each of the applications. In 2011, more than 80% of the revenues were contributed by the consumer application segment. This trend is due to the large volume market for the mobile phone and tablet controller ICs.

The product market for the touch controller ICs is divided according to the touch panel working principle. It is observed that resistive type and capacitive type together acquired about 85% of the total market in the year 2011. The capacitive touch controllers are expected to continue their dominance and by the year 2016, about 55% of the total market would be acquired by them.

Touch controllers are the solid state integrated control units used for the touch screens/panels/modules. Touch controllers market is an offshoot of the touch screens market which is witnessing a high growth. During the introduction phase of the touch technology, touch controllers were built from discrete components, but there was an increasing pressure from the products integrators to reduce the cost and the size of a controller. This compelled IC manufacturers to integrate all the discrete blocks of the controller in to a single device.

Currently, consumer electronics is driving the touch controller market; major reason being the large amount of shipments of the touch enabled consumer electronics devices. Mobile phones and tablets are currently contributing more than 50% of the global touch controller IC revenues. The global touch controller IC market in the year 2011 was $1.3 billion and it is expected to grow to $7.74 billion by the end of year 2016.

Technology segment of the maekrt of touch controller IC is split in to the four different IC types. Every IC is used for a specific application type; for example, Analog IC type is used for resistive touch panels, whereas, ASIC controllers are used for capacitive touch panels. The major types of ICs covered in the report are; ASIC, MCU, Custom Controller, and Analog Controllers. Of all four IC types, ASIC and MCU are the ones with maximum market share. Analog Controller’s share is on decline.

Product market for the touch controller IC is segmented in to three different ways; by functionality, by module type, and by the panel technology type. Panel technology is the working principle of a touch panel/module. These technologies are resistive, capacitive, infrared, optical, on-cell, and in-cell. Capacitive technology heavily dominates the market because of the advantages such as multi-touch, zero pressure touch, and long life. Because of these advantages, many mobile phones and tablets come with capacitive technology.

Applications market for the touch controller is vastly fragmented since touch controllers can be embedded in to any interface device. The applications market is split by consumer applications, commercial applications, and industrial applications. Market is split in to four regions; North America, Europe, APAC, and ROW.

Major players competing in thismarket are Synaptics Corporation (U.S.), Atmel Corporation (U.S.), Cypress Semiconductor, Incorporated (U.S.),Broadcom Corporation (U.S.), Texas Instruments, Incorporated (U.S.), Cirque Corporation (U.S.), Elan Microelectronics Corporation (Taiwan), 3M Touch Systems Ltd. (U.S.), Melfas, Incorporated (South Korea), and Semtech Corporation (U.S.).The following graph shows global market of touch controller IC indicating revenues and shipments. Data analysis is done from the year 2011 to the year 2016.
