's iPad 5 Set to Continue Driving Market Shift Toward In-Cell Display Technology

Digitimesreportsthat the adoption of new touch-sensor systems in both the iPhone 5 and iPad has caused a notable shift in the supply chain of the touch panel market, according to resrch carried out by the firm DisplaySrch.
Displays with in-cell touch are expected to rise from 7.3% of mobile phone shipments in 2012 to 13.7% in 2013, while shipments of GG DITO (double-sided ITO glass) structure are expected to decline from 10.3% to 0.6%. For tablets, shipments of GF2 sensor structure are expected to rise from 4.7% in 2012 to 28.4% in 2013, while shipments of GG DITO structure decline from 37.2% to 8.1%.Calvin Hseih, resrch director at DisplaySrch, notes that has been primarily responsible for this shift, despite the massive of touchscreen devices alrdy on the market. 's shift from a GG type touch-sensor system (glass on glass) to in-cell touch technology and GF2 (whereby the second layer of glass is replaced by an optical ) has rapidly influenced the entire supply chain

switched from GG to in-cell touch technology with the iPhone 5 relse back in September 2012 and the iPad mini and fourth-eration iPad also fture GF2 technology.Another reportby Digitimes reiteratesprevious rumorsthat the upcoming fifth-eration iPad, which is slated to be relsed sometime in Q4 2013, will fture GF2 touch technology.

That technology will allow the new iPad to be thinner and lighter than previous models, with the technology being supplied by TPK and GIS. The fifth-eration iPad has been rumored and shown in parts to besignificantly smaller and thinnerthan the current iPad, taking design cues from the iPad mini.
