A report by IHS DisplayBank claims 4.57 million notebooks shipped in Q1 2013 featured a capacitive touchscreen, up 51.8 percent from the previous quarter. The number represents just over ten percent of all 46 million notebooks shipped in the period.
“Touch-screen notebooks should hold at least 10 percent of the total laptop shipments,” the company said in a new report on the sector. “In particular, brands from the greater China region, including Lenovo, Acer and Asus, have set higher targets of achieving more than 20 percent [adoption],” the report said. Microsoft ignited the rush to touch screen notebooks with the release of Windows 8 last fall, its first operating system to natively support the technology.
Win 8 has seen sluggish uptake to date, but Displaybank remains cautiously optimistic.
