I   Current Status and Future Outlook of In-vehicle Touchscreen/Component Market

  • The eventual form of touchscreens is those that make drivers excited.
  • Makers should establish unique position in the market by developing and utilizing technologies.
  • What to appeal in in-vehicle touchscreens is new values based on technological innovation rather than price competition.
  • There is room to develop new products and new technologies in in-vehicle touchscreens.
  • Customer needs for in-vehicle touchscreens to be larger in size, different shapes, and unique designs with curved surface have increased.
  • Competition between incell/oncell and outcell has started.

II    Technological Trends of In-vehicle Touchscreen/Components

  • The in-vehicle capacitive touchscreen market in 2016 recorded 44.34 million screens, 113.1% of the size of the previous year.
  • Shift of demands from resistive touchscreens to capacitive sensing touchscreens has been accelerated, with 51.7% of the entire market becoming capacitive by 2017.
  • Film on Glass (FG) resistive touchscreens are promoted for car audios and for emerging countries.
  • Due to lightness in weight and prices, OGS, PG2/GG2 has widened the demand.
  • Introduction of PFF (including those molded products) has been increasing due not only to lightness in weight, but also improved designs with curved surface and different shapes.
  • The in-vehicle touchscreen market, both resistive and capacitive, has been led by Japanese manufacturers.
  • New entries of in-vehicle touchscreen market by large touchscreen makers have accelerated, together with expansion of Chinese local makers.
  • Not only JDI and LGD have started mass-manufacturing in-vehicle in-cell touchscreens in 2017, Innolux is planning to produce on-cell within 2017
  • Touchscreen makers should make use of their advantage of their out-cell production by creating their in-vehicle touchscreens to be larger in size and with curved surface.
  • In order to make in-vehicle touchscreens larger in size, more sensitive, different shapes, and to make curved surface, metal mesh touchscreens are to be mass produced from summer, 2017.
  • Key to increase user introductions is to secure trust by improving technological completeness.
  • There are attempts at makers to process their own cover lenses in order to respond to diverse needs.
  • Driver ICs for larger screens have become marketed in responding to larger in-vehicle touchscreens.
  • Curved surface of touchscreens have been advanced to be in combination with curved cover lenses.
  • To stabilize the quality and procurement of molded products, cooperation with molded product makers have been made one after another.
  • Important theme is the development of capacitive touch switches and touchscreen input devices
  • Key of next-generation growth is research and studies of "Touch plus alfa," i.e., haptics and 3D gesture, etc.
