Middle-East Touch Sensor Market is expected to reach USD XX Billion by 2026 from USD XX Billion in 2018 at a CAGR of XX% (Detailed analysis of the market CAGR is provided in the report).
A touch sensor is capable of detecting touch without relying only on physical contact. The touch sensors are nowadays used across numerous applications like mobile phones, remote controls, and control panels among others. The present-day touch sensors are capable of replacing mechanical buttons and switches. These touch sensors have simple rotational sliders and touchpads along with the rotary wheels that offer substantial advantages for spontaneous user interfaces. Touch sensors are far more convenient and reliable without using the movable parts. The use of these touch sensors provides greater liberty to the system designer together with reducing the overall system cost.
The market for touch sensors in Middle-East is divided into technology, application, and geography. Based on technology, the market includes a capacitive and resistive touch sensor, On the basis of applications, the market is segmented into Smartphones, Laptops, Tablets, all-in-one (AIO) PCs, and monitors.
Resistive touch screens have two layers comprising of a flexible top layer and firm bottom layer detached using the insulating dots. The capacitive technologies detect touch by calculating the capacitance at every addressable electrode. Both the resistive and capacitive touch sensor are used across various application areas differing across industry verticals.
The term multi-touch is pretty common in use and is used for describing a touch screen that may recognize multiple points of contact, using two or more fingers simultaneously. Touchscreen manufacturers in Middle-east is focusing on the development of multi-touch state-of-the-art screens. Sensing the pressure applied on the display by adopting the built-in force sensors around the screen is applied by most of the manufacturers. This enables pressure sensitivity for drawing & handwriting, further leading to new possibilities using the force sensitive user interface interaction. The multi-touch options for the Middle-east market includes multi-touch table and wall displays to create interactive presentations using your existing files. Companies are developing fully customizable multi-touch application suite as well that offers a collection of applications to present products or services in a unique way.
