In recent years, touch technology applications have become more and more widespread with the rapid development of smart mobile devices. Touchscreen technology is no longer limited to mobile phones and tablets; it has entered new realms of automotive, home and wearable devices, extending its reach to the medical and entertainment industries, education and the workplace. At present, major touchscreen manufacturers are primarily based in Mainland China, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. The Chinese Mainland, now the global hub of electronics manufacturing, has established touch display industry bases in several of its provinces including but not limited to Guangdong, Jiangxi, Anhui, Henan and Sichuan. The touchscreen industry is developing rapidly, building a strong competitive advantage in terms of technology, scale and industry chain matchmaking, among others.
As an internationally renowned touchscreen exhibition, C-TOUCH SHANGHAI 2016 will be held at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center on April 26-28. The exhibition will display the entire industrial chain of touchscreen manufacturing equipment, materials, components and terminal applications, while gathering from tens of thousands of professional buyers and key enterprises of touchscreen and mobile phone manufacturing and design, flat panel displays and integrated touchscreen machines. By means of the event’s professional platform, touchscreen manufacturing-related materials, components and equipment suppliers can effectively promote their products and technologies, while communicating face-to-face with touchscreen and flat panel display manufacturing enterprises from home and abroad. By the edge of Shanghai’s “Three Centers” of trade, finance and shipping, the exhibition's influence extends across all of Mainland China - a good choice for enterprises to acquire sales opportunities, find new partners, establish brand awareness and grasp the latest market trends.
The last year’s exhibition brought together industry-leading brands (e.g., DJN Optronics, New Vision Display, XuHong Optoelectronic Technology, TongLi Optoelectronic Technology, Merlia, IVTouch, Shanghai Transefiber Communication, Shanghai Plusco Technology and Red Sunrise), attracting 11,439 professional visitors. C-TOUCH SHANGHAI 2016 will also launch new industry fields including sapphire, camera modules, biometrics and intelligent hardware focusing on automotive touchscreens, wearable devices and smart home. C-TOUCH SHANGHAI 2016 is slated to present new breakthroughs and applications in touch technology, further promoting the industry’s ongoing success.
An Exploration of Industry Resources Highlighting Automotive Touchscreens
The automotive electronics field has developed rapidly alongside the development of advanced technology and fluctuating market demands in telematics presentation, entertainment and driver assistance systems. It has been accepted that automotive touchscreen will be the industry’s next key market. According to CAAM (China Association of Automobile Manufacturers) statistics, China's annual automotive production and sales ranked at more than 20 million, sustaining its global leading role for five consecutive years. Today’s big trend is automotive intelligence: big screen center consoles, steering wheels, doors, skylights and selectors, among other vital shift interfaces. According to CAAM and the Nielsen Report released in July 2015, up to 88% of intelligent onboard system users prefer using "big touch screen" functions.
Combining nearly ten years in the touchscreen industry with Reed Exhibitions’ powerful electronics influence and database, C-TOUCH SHANGHAI 2016 will be expanding invitations to professionals in the automotive electronics field. The organizer will be carrying out focus visits to East China automotive electronics manufacturers four months in advance with an aim to conduct in-depth communication with key decision-makers responsible for management, procurement, production and technology, among other sectors; these professionals will ultimately receive invitations to the exhibition. Numerous professional visitors from major automotive electronics industries will be convening onsite to negotiate with exhibitors, while the industry elite will be sharing technical problems and solutions throughout the exhibition’s extensive conference program.
Converging Well-Known Brands & Eye-Catching Wearable Devices
According to recently released industry research by the IDC (International Data Corporation), the global wearable device market is rapidly developing in smart watches, smart clothing and other equipment. It is predicted that the global wearable device market will reach 111.1 million units in 2016, at an increase of 44.4% compared with the previous year. This number is forecasted to reach 214.6 million units by 2019 at an average growth rate of 28%.
Wearable devices became a C-TOUCH SHANGHAI 2015 highlight, presenting top brands Gizwits, IC Coffee, Weiot.net, Ingenic Semiconductor and Chipone, among many others. Smart watches, virtual glasses, smart rings and other products on display were all onsite audience favorites. Even more prominent intelligent hardware brands will be joining this year’s exhibition.
