Transparent conductive film market is highly fragmented in terms of both the technologies used and their apparent applications. TCF industry is in the progressive phase of its product life cycle, which is due to novel technologies gaining ground within the TCF industry. Prevailing trend of tablet and tablet PCs in the handheld device market coupled with rising demand for touch functionality in display devices are predominant factors shaping the future of the TCF industry. In the prevailing market conditions, ITO based TCFs own Lions share in the market primarily as it is a seasoned technology. Potentially strong technologies such as metal mesh and silver nanowire, which have emerged in recent years, are making strong inroads and are expected to be tough competitive technologies. Smartphones lead the applications market primarily due its large sales volume throughout the globe. Its leadership among touch UI devices in terms of unit sales would continue assisting this segment to be the market leader during the next seven years. The market may however change its facet during the extended forecast period of 2020 to 2025 and the tablets and tablet PCs market may overtake the smartphones market. Geographically, Asia Pacific is the undisputed leader as almost half of the industries that find the application of TCF in their products are based in APAC region. North America follows APAC claiming its ownership on nearly one third of the market. Europe and LAMEA own no significant share in the global market. During the extended forecast period of 2020 to 2025, TCF industry is expected to transform into a bullish market due to probable huge demand for touch UI in a wide range of electronic products.
