Light Field Market by Technology (Imaging Solution, Display), Vertical (Healthcare and Medical, Defense and Security, Media and Entertainment, Architecture and Engineering, Industrial), and Geography - Global Forecast to 2023
“The light field market is likely to grow at a CAGR of 14.5% between 2018 and 2023”
The light field market was valued at USD 924.7 million in 2018 and is expected to reach USD 1,822.3 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 14.5% during the forecast period. Major factors driving the growth of the light field market includes the increasing demand for light field technology in visual effects technology in movies, just-in-time marketing, rising need of prototyping, and emerging 4D & 5D technologies. However, the lack of infrastructure support to implement light field imaging is hindering the growth of the market. The lack of availability of 3D content poses a crucial challenge for this market.
“3D rendering is growing substantially among other imaging solutions”
The complete range of 3D imaging solutions includes 3D modeling, 3D scanning, layout and animation, 3D rendering, and image reconstruction. The market for 3D rendering is expected to grow significantly owing to the increased demand from the media and entertainment industry for improved imaging. The increased emphasis on virtualization software is fostering the growth of the 3D rendering market.
“Media and entertainment vertical is expected to register the highest growth rate between 2018 and 2023”
In 2017, the healthcare and medical vertical held the highest market share, whereas the media and entertainment vertical is expected to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period. Light field market is expected to register the highest growth rate in media and entertainment vertical with high focus on auto stereoscopy. Auto stereoscopy is used for displaying stereoscopic pictures without wearing any glasses. This technology works with the help of motion parallax and wide viewing angle. It helps in providing viewers an illusion of 3D imaging. Presently, auto stereoscopy is used in augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) systems.
