REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
The multi-touch interface is a fast emerging accessibility option available today, and it is fast replacing keypads. Multi-touch is typically associated with capacitive touch
screen displays rather than with the more common resistive touch screen displays. "Natural user interface" is the term used by designers and developers of computer
interfaces to refer to a user interface that is effectively invisible, or becomes invisible with successive learned interactions, to its users. This report provides the necessary
insights on the multi-touch industry with respect to current market and forecasted market for next five years. Due to the rapidly growing smartphone market, multi-touch
technology is expected to become mainstream technology for major handheld devices.

SCOPE OF THE REPORT
This report examines the global market for touch screen technologies used in various products, including smartphones, tablets, e-readers, laptop/notebook computers,
televisions and various types of displays. This report is segmented into sections covering products, technologies and applications. The technology section is segmented
into transparent touch screen and opaque touch screen technologies. The product market is segmented into consumer electronics products, IT products and miscellaneous products. The application segment is divided into consumer applications, enterprise applications and miscellaneous applications. The market by region is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and the rest of world (ROW). Multi-touch technology market size estimates and forecasts are provided for each
region for the period of 2012 to 2018.

INTENDED AUDIENCE
This report is intended for vendors who supply multi-touch modules for use in OEM products such as smartphones, tablets, e-readers, laptop/notebooks, televisions and
displays (LCD, OLED, AMOLED, PMOLED, P-OLED, LCOS), consultants concerned with consumer durables and consultants involved in electronics and displays.

METHODOLOGY
BCC Research collects its data through primary and secondary sources after which an analysis is performed on the data collected. The report presents an analysis of the various multi-touch technologies by product and application. BCC Research also conducts a number of surveys, based on which industry growth in relation to the growth of each multi-touch technology is analyzed. Growth rates and forecast shipments are estimated to 2018.

INFORMATION SOURCES
BCC Research interviewed more than 100 companies in order to obtain the data for this report. The interviewed participants included display manufacturers, multi-touch
module aggregators, software solution providers, resellers, final product manufacturers, suppliers, deposition service providers, industrial and consumer product manufacturing companies and various end users of products using multi-touch technology. Additional data was obtained from trade associations, industry and financial sources.
