Touch Panel and Emerging Display -- New Opportunities in 2014 and Beyond

With touch panels spreading everywhere we see and we use, the touch industry is changing very fast. In this presentation, Dr. Colegrove will discuss the opportunities and growth area in the touch panel and emerging display industry. From mobile phones to phablet to notebook PCs to interactive signage; from finger touch to pen writing; from gesture control to ultrasound control, from curved display to flexible display, there are many opportunities and many challenges. Dr. Colegrove will also discuss the transparent conductive materials and films on touch screens. There are over 180 companies are working on several types of ITO replacement, such as metal mesh, silver nanowire, conductive polymers, carbon nanotube, graphene and other type materials. Touch Display Research surveyed many leading manufacturers in this field. Dr. Colegrove will also provide the market forecast of the new generation transparent conductors from 2013 till 2020.

Embedded Touch: The Touch-Panel Makers vs. The Display-Makers

After 10 years of development, embedded touch (in-cell, hybrid in-cell, and on-cell touch supplied by a display maker) is finally real and shipping in high volume. What does this mean for the touch-panel industry? This presentation compares embedded and discrete (OGS) touch, examining the forecast, cost, performance, thickness, weight, power consumption, off-screen icon capability, and ability to deliver what device OEMs want. Where touch-controller suppliers fit into this picture is also examined. A set of conclusions is reached with which you may or may not agree ? but they should make you take a new look at the looming battle between the touch-panel makers and the display makers.
