In-Cell and On-Cell Touch Technologies On the Rise, says IHS

As the mobile phone market slows down, display manufacturers are looking to new in-cell and on-cell touch-screen solutions that offer consumers thinner and brighter displays, while shortening the supply chain for smartphone manufacturers, according to market research firm, IHS in its latest Touch Panel Market Tracker report. 

As panel makers promote these new solutions, and offer aggressive pricing as well, in-cell and on-cell touch solutions are expected to comprise half of all smartphone displays shipped in 2017. IHS said that with the advent of active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AMOLED) used in smartphones, new touch solutions are emerging that boast greater flexibility, lighter weight and other feature improvements. These solutions are expected to grow more than 50 percent this year compared to the previous year, added IHS.

Since Samsung announced their Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone last year, flexible displays have grabbed consumer and industry attention. Flexible AMOLED displays offer many more features than traditional rigid AMOLED and LCD displays, which is an attractive proposition for device makers and consumers.
