Global Touch Controller IC Market summary

Touch controller integrated circuit (IC) is a circuit which converts input signal into measurable signal. Input signal can be an object or finger which comes in contact with the screen. The converted signal is processed and calculated by controller software algorithms to determine touch position on the screen. A touchscreen controller IC is created with dedicated peripherals pins to allow interfacing with host processor and touch sensors. Normally, this circuit is fixed on flexible print circuit, which connects sensor to the host processor. Touch controller IC acts as an input delicate to pressure enabling the information to transform from electrically conductive layer to the controller to process it. It is a non-memory semiconductor that converts analog signals into digital signals whenever a touch is detected on a screen.

The COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has negative impact on the market. During the pandemic, lockdown imposed by government bodies resulted in disruption of supply chain, halted manufacturing, and all the upcoming product launch were delayed, which significantly reduced the demand of touch controller IC. The market is expected to recover soon as emergency lockdown is lifted by the government gradually and manufacturing plants are resuming their operation with limited workforce.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Rising demand for smartphone coupled with increasing acceptance of conventional touchscreen is one of the key factors driving the market growth.
  • Growing consumer electronics industry across the globe is projected to boost the market during the forecast period.
  • It requires proximity of the user to operate the touch enables devices which acts as a major challenge that can restrict the market growth in the coming years.
  • High cost of touch controller IC is expected to hamper the market growth during the projected timeline.
  • Increasing functionality of touch IC in various sectors, including automotive and manufacturing is anticipated to create significant growth opportunities for the market.
