The global flexible display market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 16.65% over the forecast period to reach US$44.224 billion in 2027, up from US$15.043 billion in 2020.
The flexible display is being increasingly used for consumer electronics due to its advantages like ruggedness, lightweight, non-brittle nature, portability, and durability. Consumer electronics like smartphones, tablets, laptops, and other devices are using advanced technology and are increasing the use of flexible displays. The growing polymer industry has led to the easy availability of raw materials. The flexible display is made up of glass, plastic, and metal. Smart wearables, televisions, personal computers, laptops, E-Readers, monitors, smartphones and tablets, electronic shelf labels, and vehicles all use flexible displays. The flexible display is highly durable, lightweight, ultra-thin, unbreakable, bendable, shatter-proof, portable, and uses low energy consumption. The rising adoption of OLED-based devices mobile phones, VR headsets, digital cameras, laptops, tablets, and televisions is growing the market for flexible displays. The high adoption of entertainment and gaming is going to drive the flexible displays market in the forecast period.
The global flexible display market is segmented by type as LCD, LED, TFT, and E-paper. A Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) is an electronically modulated optical device that uses the light-modulating properties of liquid crystals combined with polarizers. LED displays are comprised of soft rubber and a printed circuit board. It can be made in any size and shape for creative installations. The Thin Film Transistor (TFT) backplane is a crucial enabler for fabricating flexible displays. Electrophoretic technology is commonly known as e-paper. The screens have a very broad viewing angle and come in monochrome with up to 16 shades of grey. OLED is the rising segment in the flexible display market due to its high energy efficiency, simplified design, flexibility, and better image quality. OLED does not involve backlighting, which enables them to be thinned and molded into specific shapes like curved screens.
By application, the market is segmented as smartphones, wearables, digital signage, TV, and others. The wearables segment is growing at a rapid rate due to a change in lifestyle and advancement in technology. Wearable devices utilize small display panels and have a lot of new applications like augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR).
Geographically, the flexible display market has been segmented into North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Asia Pacific. The report also analyses major countries across these regions with a complete analysis and forecast along with prevailing market trends and opportunities that each of these countries presents for the manufacturers. Geographically, North America held a significant amount of market share due to the high disposable income of citizens coupled with the urbanized society in this region. The Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the fastest rate owing to rapid urbanization, especially in the emerging economies of China and India. The large population base coupled with the growing middle-class income level and rising disposable income augments the adoption of devices like smartphones, tablets, and TVs, among others, and is expected to propel the flexible display market over the projected period. The rising adoption of technology and the presence of rapidly growing economies in China and India are further expected to contribute to market growth.
Because of the presence of various players, the market is fragmented; key players dominate the market share due to their ability to invest in continuous R&D. Sony Corporation, SAMSUNG, LG Electronics, E Ink Holdings Inc., and AU Optronics Corp. are among the prominent firms addressed in the market.
