Global Touch Controller IC Market 2015-2019

About touch controller IC

Touch controller IC is a component of the touch panel that connects the touch sensor and the display panel in a touch-based device. The function of a touch controller IC is to translate the information from touch sensor into information that the device can comprehend. It is usually connected to the touch sensor screen. Touch panel overlay is usually made of plastic integrated above the display module. The touch controller is modified according to the interface or connection required for the device type. The demand for touch panel directly influences the demand for touch controller IC.

Technavio's analysts forecast the revenue of the global touch controller IC market to grow at a CAGR of 15.9% in terms of revenue during the period 2014-2019.
