Revenues for touch screen modules were predicted to double in 2011, and to double again over the next six years. Adhesives play a key, but modest, role in assembling these modules. However, as a relatively young technology, many problems with how the adhesives are used are still being solved. These include ensuring the adhesive doesn't interfere with the quality of image from the display, allowing touchscreen modules to be reworked, automating processes and solving reliability issues in some designs. With the prospects for growth in this market, adhesive producers and module makers who can solve these and other still unforeseen problems will reap a significant reward. The advent of the touchscreen has revolutionized how people interact with technology. Touchscreen smartphones and tablet computers are now commonplace in much of the world, providing convenient, portable access to the internet. Among the many components that are vital in enabling these capabilities, adhesives play a modest but important role.
