REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDY
The multi-touch interface is a fast emerging accessibility option available today, and it is fast replacing keypads. Multi-touch is typically associated with capacitive touch
screen displays rather than with the more common resistive touch screen displays. “Natural user interface” is the term used by designers and developers of computer
interfaces to refer to a user interface that is effectively invisible, or becomes invisible with successive learned interactions, to its users. This report provides the necessary
insights on the multi-touch industry with respect to current market and forecasted market for next five years. Due to the rapidly growing smartphone market, multi-touch
technology is expected to become mainstream technology for major handheld devices.
