In the recently published “Automotive touch, display, ADAS and touchless HMI 2018 report, second edition” Touch Display Research Inc., a market research and consulting firm, analyzes automotive touch screen, display, ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistant System), and touchless human-machine-interaction (HMI) technologies and supply chain. This is the second edition with many update over the first edition (which was published in 2016). More than 500 companies working on automotive technologies are profiled in the report.

This report mainly covers four parts of automotive industry: touch, display, ADAS and touchless HMI. In chapter 12, we also discussed other emerging technologies for automotive, including smart windows, haptic feedback, OLED lighting, augmented reality, virtual reality, artificial intelligence for automotive.

 

SID Vehicle Display and Interface 2018 conference review

September 29, 2018, by Jennifer Colegrove Ph.D. Principal Analyst, Touch Display Research Inc.

I just returned from the SID Vehicle Display and Interface 2018 conference in Detroit, Michigan. It was my honor to meet some of you in person.

This year’s conference had record high attendees—approximately 500 industry professionals. I recall when I spoke at this conference about 10 years ago regarding touch screen, there were approximately 100 attendees. This growth is another reflection of the automotive industry’s adoption of advanced technologies.

Mr. Silviu Pala, co-chair of this conference, and CEO of Automotive Display, gave a summary presentation of the 25th years history of this Vehicle Display conference.

Cisco’s Spark Board touch screen is using ITO-replacement

March 7, 2017

Microsoft’s Surface Hub brought interactive whiteboard to a higher level last year.

In October 2016, Google announced it will release 55 inch Jamboard interactive whiteboard to the market in 2017 to compete with Surface Hub. But the Jamboard is still not available yet at this moment.

On January 24th, 2017, Cisco announced its Spark Board and joined the competition. Cisco is moving faster than Google: the Spark Board became available in end of January. People can purchase the 55 inch Spark Board right now for $4990 plus a monthly fee of $199. Cisco will release a 70” version in end of this year for $9,990.

Touch Display Research believes the Spark Board touch sensor is using metal mesh or silver nanowire transparent conductors.

In the ITO Replacement—Non-ITO Transparent Conductor Technologies, Supply Chain and Market Forecast 2017 Report, seventh edition, Touch Display Research profiled over 300 companies and research institutes working on advanced transparent conductive (TC) materials. The report provides a detailed analysis of metal mesh, silver nanowire, carbon nano tube (CNT), conductive polymer, graphene, and other technologies.

Figure: ITO replacement 2017 report

Our survey found that the ITO-replacement transparent conductive material industry had grown over 10 time from 2012 to 2017. Touch Display Research forecasted that non-ITO transparent conductors will continue to have rapid growth in the next several years.

Many companies’ metal mesh characters are compared in one chart in the Excel database, and the silver nanowires of many companies are also compared in one chart in the report.

C3Nano raised $37 million—value in the ITO replacement

Feb 27, 2017

Recently, C3Nano just announced it has raised $15 million in equity financing, this brings their total equity financing to $37 million since its 2010 inception.

ITO (Indium Tin Oxide) used to be the main stream transparent conductive material for touch screens. However, in recently several years, other advanced transparent conductive materials, such as metal mesh, silver nanowire, carbon nano tube (CNT), conductive polymer, are replacing ITO.

In the recently published “ITO Replacement—Non-ITO Transparent Conductor Technologies, Supply Chain and Market Forecast 2017 Report,” Touch Display Research profiled over 300 companies and research institutes working on advanced transparent conductive (TC) materials.

Figure: ITO replacement 2017 report

Our survey found that the ITO-replacement industry had a shake out. Some suppliers ceased business or changed method. Some suppliers who had improved their quality and expanded to large sizes, are expanding to more markets. Touch Display Research forecasted that non-ITO transparent conductors will have rapid growth in the next several years.

Google’s Jamboard large touch screen is using metal mesh or silver nanowire

October 28, 2016

This week, Google announced its 55 inch touch display named Jamboard. Touch Display Research believes the Jamboard’s touch screen is using metal mesh or silver nanowire.

Touch screen with ITO-replacement is gaining momentum for >50” sizes category.

3M showed 55-inch touch table with metal mesh touch screen.

C3Nano demonstrated 55-inch silver nanowire transparent conductor touch display.

Microsoft has released their 55-inch and 84-inch interactive Surface Hub that can sense both finger touch and active pen.

In the ITO Replacement—Non-ITO Transparent Conductor Technologies, Supply Chain and Market Forecast 2016 Report, sixth edition, Touch Display Research analyzed over 240 companies and research institutes working on advanced transparent conductive (TC) materials. The report provides a detailed analysis of metal mesh, silver nanowire, carbon nano tube (CNT), conductive polymer, graphene, and other technologies. Figure here is the comparison of several transparent conductors.

Figure: ITO replacement comparison chart

ITO replacement compare with TDR2016

Touch Display Research forecasts that the ITO-replacement market will reach $13 billion by 2023. The ITO-replacement industry has made good progress in the touch panel and other applications in the past two years. However, not all companies are growing and you need to be very selective. The specifications of over thirty metal mesh suppliers are compared side-by-side in one chart in the Excel database.

Touch Display Research forecast that ITO-replacement will become the major transparent conductor for touch panels after 2021. ITO will be the minor transparent conductor for touch panels.
