    1. Introduction
Though Touchscreen technology has been in existence since the 1980’s, it has come in to
prominence only after the launch of the iconic Apple iPhone. Touchscreen technology has
also seen rapid growth in other segments like PCs, kiosks etc. much before the launch of
the iPhone or the LG Prada. The current market for touchscreens is primarily driven by
mobile handsets, portable gaming consoles, Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) and Portable
Navigation Devices (PNDs). However mobile phones are the ones which are garnering a
huge share of consumer interest with respect to touchscreens and TechNavio estimates that
around 38-40% of all mobile phones shipped will have Touchscreen technology by 2012.

     2. Market size
The Touchscreen technology market will have a major influence on the Mobile Handsets
Industry in the near future. According to TechNavio, the shipment revenue from leading
Mobile Touchscreen technologies is estimated to be around $4.4 billion by 2012, up from
$3.1 billion in 2008.
The following exhibit 2.1 depicts the shipment revenue of Mobile touchscreen technologies
from 2007 to 2012:

The penetration of Touchscreen technology in mobile phones is estimated to be less than
5% for the year 2008, and is expected to grow upto 41% by 2012 (Source: TechNavio
estimates). At present, majority of the mobile handset manufacturers’ (Nokia, Sony
Ericsson, LG, Samsung, Motorola, HTC etc.) portfolio consists of touchscreen handsets. The
acceptance of touchscreen devices is different at different geographical regions, which is an
important factor for the success of handset vendors. The Asia/Pacific market alone,
