606 million touchscreens shipped in 2009

Posted on Sunday, May 23 2010 @ 14:20:18 CEST by


DisplaySearch reports shipments of touchscreens increased 29 percent year-over-year to about 606 million units in 2009. Cell phones are the biggest application for touch screens, with over 376 million touch screen panels shipped for mobile phones in 2009. More info over here.
“Touch screen penetration has been rapidly increasing in mobile phone, PMP/MP3, portable navigation, and other applications. Over the next several years, touch screens will undergo strong growth in large-size applications such as all-in-one PCs, Mini-note/slate PCs, and education/training,” noted Jennifer Colegrove, PhD, Director of Display Technologies at DisplaySearch.

As the previous 2009 report forecasted, projected capacitive shipments have increased substantially. Projected capacitive touch has been popularized by Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch since 2007, and with the iPad adopting it in 2010, DisplaySearch forecasts that projected capacitive will pass resistive touch technology to become the leading touch technology in 2010, measured by revenues.
