"The market for projected capacitive touch panels is continuing to grow at a rapid rate," said Paul Massey, sr. vice president of marketing and sales.

Many customers we engage with are looking at projected capacitive touch panels as a way to enhance the user experience and performance of their next-generation products. Projected capacitive touch panels not only increase functionality of a device, but they enable the leading-edge look and feel that appeals to today's consumers."
