Touch Controller IC Market Size, Share | Forecast Report to 2027

Technological advances in the devices used by end users in the consumer and enterprise markets are driven by the need for better user interfaces and space optimization. In response to this demand, the end-user device market has shifted to touch screens, and there are few device segments where touch screens are not implemented. The proliferation of touch screens in the market and the resulting growth of touch screen technology must be complemented by touch controller ICs that act as a control device for touch screens.

A touch controller IC is a microcontroller that allows a touch screen to register and analyze user input. The touch controller IC also acts as a link between the device’s processor and the touch screen responsible for most of the device’s I/O functions.

Touch Controller IC Market: Drivers and Challenges

IoT devices are rapidly adopting by users who increasingly rely on touch screens for an improved user experience. Operating systems and software solutions are also being redesigned to work seamlessly with touch-enabled devices with touch controller ICs.

This in turn is driving the demand for touch screens and touch controller ICs in the market. While touch screens enable features such as improved user interfaces and device space optimization, they are prone to damage and are more expensive than keypad-based systems.

This is why many devices that operate in harsh or industrial environments prefer keypad-based systems over touch controls. The fragile nature of touch screens is hindering the growth of the touch controller IC market.

Touch Controller IC Market: Regional Overview

North American users have the ability to spend and tend to adopt more expensive devices faster than elsewhere. The number of devices per user is expected to increase in the region over the next few years, driving the growth of Touch Controller ICs in the region.

APAC and Europe are also expected to contribute significantly to the touch controller IC market, owing to the growth of industrial automation and the increasing economics of touch screens manufactured by local vendors.

Touch Controller IC Market: Segmentation

Segmentation of Touch Controller IC Market by Screen Technology

  • Touch controller IC for capacitive touch screen
  • Capacitive touch screens work on the principle of capacitive touch sensing, which uses the human body’s electric charge to sense input. These screens have a layer of safety glass that increases durability. These types of screens are more accurate and can accept a variety of touch inputs. The reason capacitive touch screens are widely adopted is because they are superior in durability and usability.
  • Touch controller IC for resistive touch screen
  • Resistive touch screens use the mechanical action of human touch to connect two flexible layer sensors together to generate input. Unlike capacitive screens, resistive screens are covered with a layer of polyurethane sheet for flexibility. This screen technology is not preferred for devices as it is not durable and has a poor user experience.
