Touch Display Research defines the vertical market as the non-consumer, or specialty commercial market. We separated the applications of this market into nine categories: 1) ATM/financing, 2) Automobile, 3) Casino gaming, 4) Education/training, 5) Industry/military, 6) Interactive signage/video conferencing, 7) Medical, 8) Retail/vending machine/ticketing, 9) Other applications such as printer/office and home appliances.

“Touch screen suppliers––especially projected capacitive touch suppliers––were mostly profitable during 2007 and 2009. Fast forward to 2014, however, and the competition is fierce; many touch screen suppliers have encountered net losses. New business strategies are needed to become a leader or maintain a leadership position in today’s touch industry,” said Dr. Jennifer Colegrove, President and Analyst, Touch Display Research. “The touch penetration for consumer electronics is going to be saturated. On the other hand, adoption in the vertical market will continue to increase rapidly in the next few years.”
• The requirements for touch screens in vertical applications are different than the requirements in consumer electronics. The focus for the touch panel intended for the consumer market is low price, low power consumption, portability, and normally less than three years of durability. The vertical market demands over five years durability while operating in harsh environments, but is willing to accept a higher price and greater power consumption.
• Within vertical applications, each field has its own unique requirement as well. Detailed analysis is included from Chapter 5 to Chapter 12 of the report.
• Dr. Colegrove, author of this report, is best known as the first analyst to write a comprehensive report on the touch screen industry since 2007. She has conducted many first-hand interviews of touch panel suppliers, system integrators, and brands in the past few years.
