Global SmartWatch Display Market 2015-2019

About smartwatch display

Smartwatch display is the thick/thin electronic display screen made up of glass, plastic, or other flexible substrates. These screens are lightweight and foldable. As the demand for user-friendly and ubiquitous displays is expected to increase, many industry participants are working toward the development of large and high-resolution displays for smartwatches. Such displays make the screen of these watches durable and resistant to damage and increase the amount of content that can be displayed. In the future, we estimate that out of the rigid and flexible displays, the latter will be an embedded part of a wide range of applications.
