The touch panel market may change this year. Last year, Apple and Apple's two hot-selling products, the iPhone and the iPad, were the best-selling products. The double-glazed G/G glass-type projected capacitive touch panel became the mainstream of touch technology, but Apple’s new iPhone may adopt a single-chip integrated touch. The panel in-cell technology, rather than the new models of Apple brand manufacturers, either adopts thin-film touch panels or uses single-chip touch panels (in-cell, on-cell, Touch on Lens or One Glass). Solution, etc.) This situation may lead to the development of different touch panel technologies such as G/G, thin film, monolithic, and panel integration.
The three situations that may occur at the moment are the rapid rise of double glass G/G structure touch panel micro, monolithic touch technology or panel integration touch technology, and it may be that the film type touch panel is turned over.
The above scenario is mainly speculated from several events or phenomena. First of all, in the past, the double-glazed capacitive touch panel that led the development of the touch panel industry, the so-called G/G structured touch panel, has been supported by only one major customer, which is Apple Apple. However, due to Apple's consideration of using in-cell touch technology to import its new generation of smart phone iPhone 5, under the influence of the switch between old and new products, this year has caused a significant reduction in G/G touch panel shipments.
Furthermore, Amazon, another major maker of G/G touch panels, has continued to adopt the G/G structure touch panel, similar to Apple's New iPad, despite its 7-inch Kindle Fire. However, it is rumored that Apple may be in this year. The iPad Mini, introduced in the second half of the year, and the new small form factor tablet computer planned by Amazon, may use thin-film touch panels.
If you look at mobile phones alone, according to the survey, at least 5-6 percent of new non-Apple brand makers have adopted films this year.
Capacitive touch panels, not only HTC this year's new models will be almost 100% will use film touch panels, Samsung in addition to AMOLED mobile phones are on-cell touch technology, the rest of the mobile phone also uses a film-type touch panel. As for MOTO, Sony, Chinese mainland brands, etc., this year will be based on film-based touch technology.
