TPK forecasting huge increase in fingerprint recognition touch panel orders
Taiwanese touch panel maker TPK is forecasting a significant rise in the number of orders for products with fingerprint recognition capabilities from China-based smartphone vendors throughout 2015, according to a report by Digitimes.
The company has identified pricing as the most crucial factor impacting the technology’s acceptance into the Chinese market as local vendors are currently offering low-priced solutions in an effort to command the majority market share.
Additionally, TPK is expected to be one of the main suppliers of fingerprint recognition sensors, along with O-Film, in conjunction with Synaptics, which is set to release newer products in the second half of 2015.
TPK designs, develops and markets projective capacitive touch solutions that are integrated into mobile and consumer electronics devices, such as smartphones, tablet PCs, notebook PCs, ultrabook PCs and electronic book readers.
