Global 3D Display Market 2016-2020

Global 3D Display Market 2016-2020

About 3D Displays

3D displays exhibit images with depth perception by using various technologies such as multi-view, stereoscopic, and 2D-plus-depth displays. However, to experience depth perception, special 3D glasses are required to view the images from 3D displays. Some display technologies that do not need special glasses include an active shutter 3D system and a polarized 3D system (or autostereoscopic system). 3D displays are used in various devices such as 3D TVs, mobile handsets, tablets, gaming devices, and HMDs.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global 3D display market to grow at a CAGR of 28.38% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global 3D Display Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global 3D display market: LG Display, Panasonic, Samsung Display, Toshiba, and AU Optronics.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Innolux, HannStar Display, Universal Display, and ViewSonic.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “3D-based interactive displays will be a key trend for market growth. 3D display technologies are becoming increasingly popular. Widely present in the field of computer graphics, 3D viewing is now being applied in other environments such as education, medical diagnostics, and biomechanical engineering. Conventional 3D display systems usually require users to wear special viewing equipment such as glasses, goggles, and helmets, but these viewing aids are becoming undesirable. Technologies such as volumetric and parallax displays help produce 3D images without the use of special viewing aids. However, these technologies have many drawbacks related to viewing angles, occlusion, and opacity.”

According to the report, the emergence of 3D tablet PCs is a major growth driver in the global 3D display market. A few tablet PCs with 3D displays are already available in the market, and autostereoscopic technology-based 3D tablet PCs are expected to be commercialized soon. For instance, LG Display introduced a 3D tablet equipped with anaglyph technology that requires glasses to experience the 3D projection. This indicates that the market is likely to witness the entry of several tablet PC manufacturers during the forecast period. This will, in turn, propel the growth of the global 3D display market.

Further, the report states that the adoption of 3D flat panel TVs plays a significant role in the growth of this market, as it accounts for more than 70% of the overall demand for 3D displays. The adoption of these 3D FPDs depends on the availability of 3D video content. The more 3D content available, the higher the adoption rate of 3D TVs. However, the lack of interoperability among the stakeholders present in the 3D content delivery value chain is a major hindrance to the availability of 3D video content. These stakeholders include content owners, flat panel manufacturers, broadcasters, satellite operators, and platform operators. This is one of the major challenges, which the market is expected to overcome during the forecast period.
