TechNavio Insights’s report covering the 2009-2013 ‘Global Touch Screen Display Market’ has been added by the Research and Markets in its offering. The report provides an insight on the existing and future touch screen market’s potential, along with major market vendor profiles, drivers, trends and growth inhibitors.
Touch screen sensors are installed on a display screen that functions like a physical user interface. The user will be able to feed inputs to various gadgets on the display screen, thus obviating the requirement of any external input gadget.
Existing keyboards and switches in computing devices are being replaced by new technologies such as voice recognition, projected interfaces and touchscreen displays. Keyboards vulnerable to dust and dirt are being replaced by touchscreen displays. With repeated outdoor use, keys get harder and need more than one pressing to perform a single function. In addition, miniature keys used in mobile computing gadgets are a source of annoyance for users while driving a vehicle or moving.
The touch screen display, on the other hand, offers a bigger user friendly interface, which is faster and easier to navigate and use. In addition, a bigger display screen is able to provide an improved web browsing experience. Due to these reasons, gadgets like vehicle mounted computers and PDAs have adopted the touchscreen technology. These gadgets are emerging as among the touchscreen market’s key drivers.
These technologies are being adopted by enterprises and businesses as they are enhancing their convenience and efficiency. For example, the PDA and smartphone industry are adopting touchscreen displays. These displays are being integrated into vehicle mounted and handheld computers already.
Mass commercial usage of touchscreen displays commenced only during the past fifteen years, though they were created more than forty years back.
These displays need human interface, irrespective of their usage for the consumer, industrial, or commercial market. Currently, the market for touchscreens is driven due to consumer applications, such as PDAs and smartphones.
