IHS Analyst: Global touch-screen panel shipments to double by 2016

25th May 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, May 25, 2013: Worldwide shipments of touch-screen panels are set to double from 2012 to 2016, reaching nearly 3 billion units as a wide variety of products beyond smartphones and tablets adopt the technology, particularly notebook PCs.

A total of 2.8 billion touch-screen panels will ship in 2016, up from 1.3 billion in 2012, according to the IHS DisplayBank “Touch Panel Issue and Cost/Industry Analysis Report,” from information and analytics provider IHS. Shipments this year will surge 34 percent to reach 1.8 billion units, as presented in the attached figure.

Duke Yi, senior manager for display components and materials research at IHS, said, “Growth in the touchscreen market will be driven by increasing penetration in markets beyond the smartphone and tablet businesses. Demand so far has largely been limited to these two markets. However, touch-screen sales are increasing dramatically across a broad range of products, particularly notebook PCs.”
