Touchscreen controllers are one of the main components of a touch-based device. They are usually linked to the touchscreen to act as an interface between the touch sensor and the display panel in a touch-based device. The main function of a touchscreen controller is to convert the data gathered from the touch sensor into data that the device can understand. There are two types of touchscreen based on technology, namely, resistive and capacitive, and function according to the need of the touchscreen. The touchscreen controller market is expected to be worth USD 9.11 Billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 15.2% between 2016 and 2022. The growth of this market is propelled by the growing integration of touchscreens in automobiles, increasing trends of wearable devices, and high demand for capacitive touchscreen technology among others.
