In-cell touch, DITO film to increase phone display share

Wednesday 28 November 2012 | 09:18 CET | News
In-cell touch technology and DITO (dual ITO) film, respectively used by the iPhone 5 and iPad mini, are expected to increase their share of the mobile phone market place, according to NPD DisplaySearch. The rise in these technologies is driven by consumer demand for lighter and thinner devices. The market researcher forecasts that in-cell touch will account for 16.7 percent of the world mobile phone market by 2018, compared with over 7.5 percent this year. Tablet PCs, which mainly use projected capacitive touch technology, will have a 5 percent share of DITO film structure technology this year. NPD DisplaySearch research director Calvin Hsieh explains that manufacturing the new sensors has been problematic. Limited production due to Apple licensing terms with LG Display, Japan Display and Sharp, along with strict performance requirements have resulted in only 70-80 percent yield rates in the LCD panel manufacturing. Production of DITO film touch sensors also bring challenges because they are easily broken when stretched and alignment of the film sensors is more difficult than with rigid glass.
