NanoMarkets LC forecasts that revenues from touchscreen displays are expected to grow from Rs.10300.89 crore ($2.2 billion) in 2010 to Rs. 15,919.56 crore ($3.4 billion) in 2014. The demand for touchscreen technologies in mobile and personal computing will create opportunities for display firms, and for suppliers of conductive coatings, substrates and sensors.

By 2014, NanoMarkets projects that revenues from in-pixel technologies are expected to reach almost Rs.2341.11 crore ($500 million) in revenues. NanoMarkets' new report also identifies an interesting and possibly disruptive trend that is aking hold of the touch display market. Mainstream display makers have begun to develop their own "in-pixel" technologies as an alternative to the current industry practice in which third-party suppliers add a touch sensor sub-system on top of an LCD display and then sell to OEMs. The net effect is that mid-size touch screen manufacturers instead of supplying companies such as LG, Samsung and Sony may wind up competing against them.

NanoMarkets say that the fastest growing touch screen technologies will be traditional IR and optical technology, both of which are based on IR sensors and LEDs. These technologies are used in digital signage and computer monitors, which are rapidly expanding addressable markets for touch technology. By 2014 the market for traditional IR and optical touch technologies will be approximately Rs.2294.29 crore ($490 million) in revenues.

NanoMarkets expects that transparent conductor materials sold into the touchscreen display market will reach revenues of Rs.1311.02 crore ($280 million) by 2014. However, by then only 64 per cent of these revenues will be accounted for by expensive ITO-based materials as opposed to 92 per cent today.
