Global automotive multimedia touchpad market: Automotive OEMs preferring touchpad as the viable input source for infotainment system

The global automotive market is witnessing the increasing proliferation of infotainment systems following the introduction of touchscreen interfaces. Touchscreens are easy to operate and are familiar to customers from their deployment in smartphones. These factors have made touchscreens important for the success of infotainment systems in modern vehicles. However, with the center consoles of vehicles becoming more complex, floating touchscreen displays have aroused significant interest in automotive industry stakeholders.
