Of the various types of touch screen technologies, capacitive touchechnology has managed to gain an edge over resistive and other technologies owing to factors such as multi-touch inputs and competitive manufacturing costs. Projected capacitive touch controller IC represents the most widespread type of touch controller chip used in touch-enabled devices. The market for ojected capacitive touch controller IContinues to benefit from the rising sales of mobile devices. Smartphones constitutes the primary application market for projected capacitive touch screen ICs, with media tablets emerging as another key market for the technology. Declining prices of projected capacitive controller ICs, over the years, has enabled the technology to be applied even in low-end handsets. Revenue growth in the projected capacitive touch controller ICs market is expected to come from widespread adoption in a wide range of consumer electronics devices including digital cameras, portable gaming devices, laptops, and e-book readers, among several others.

This IDC study discusses IDC's Worldwide Semiconductor Applications Forecaster's (SAF's) estimates on the worldwide semiconductor revenue growth. Worldwide semiconductor revenue grew 7.1% in 2014, reaching $334.6 billion. The SAF forecasts that semiconductor revenue will grow 3.6% in 2015 to $346.6 billion and log a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.1% from 2014 to 2019, reaching $389.4 billion in 2019. For 2015, IDC forecasts more moderate growth as the DRAM market stabilizes. In addition, IDC believes that the automotive, industrial, and mobile phone markets will be bright spots for 2015.

The semiconductor industry is undergoing an unprecedented number of changes. The electronic systems end market drivers are changing from personal computers to smart phones and tablets. Major consolidation is taking place in the industry particularly in memory. More and more companies are going to Fab lite and fabless companies are rising in importance.  Optical lithography has entered the multi-patterning era and EUV is late. 450mm is on the horizon. Planar transistors are transitioning to 3D FinFETs and FDSOI. New materials are being introduced at an increased pace. DRAM and NAND are facing fundamental barriers to scaling with new solutions needed.
