Can touch sensor manufacturing keep pace with demand?

The touch panel industry has grown from $4B to over $13B in the last two years. We expect that market demand will continue to be strong, and many companies are rushing in to provide additional manufacturing capacity. But will the new capacity be sufficient to meet the additional demand? Or will there be an over-supply?

The 2012 Touch Sensor Manufacturing Capacity report provides survey data from over 60 top suppliers of four key touch sensor technologies: projected capacitive, sensor-on-cover (SOC), on-cell, and resistive. The data covers key parameters, including fab generation size, substrate designed input, allocation share for touch panels, yield rate, transparent conductive (mostly ITO) substrate input area, and the yielded touch sensor area. We also provide capacity forecasts up to 2014. In the report, we also compare supply/demand and provide business strategy recommendations.

This report complements the data provided in the Touch Panel Market Analysis report, making it a must-have for any company operating in the touch sensor ecosystem.
