The screenless display market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 29.86% to reach US$6.713 billion in 2027 from US$1.078 billion in 2020.

Screenless display means no screen display of visuals and of information. Images or videos can be projected in open space, on the human retina, or into the brain directly, depending upon the technology used. It needs human gestures to direct it and manipulate it in the air, which serves as an interface between the information to be displayed and the user. It is predominantly used for imaging in medical holography. The rising number of applications of screenless displays in various sectors like aerospace, defense and consumer electronics is likely to propel the growth of this market.

A screenless display will bring a paradigm shift in the gaming segment too, by turning around the experience of playing games.  Retinal Display, a segment by type, is a major breakthrough in display markets as it will provide a better visual experience at higher resolution and pixel density. Additionally, it is expected to cause less strain on the eyes, which could be a major reason why consumers would want to switch to it traditional touchscreens.

The use of screenless displays is estimated to rise exponentially throughout the forecast period due to rapid technological advancements happening in the consumer electronics segment. Though this technology is in its birth stage and is still evolving, screenless displays are anticipated to cannibalize the touch display market in the near future. The portability constraint with touch screens can be overcome by the screenless displays. Screenless Display also offers low battery consumption and additional security features, which is also a demand driver for this segment. This market faces challenges in terms of the high cost and technical feasibility of developing a satisfactory product.

Screenless Display Market is expected to grow at an exponential growth rate throughout the forecast period owing to its potential of overcoming the shortfalls in the touch display.

The fixed or limited size of the touch display and the need for miniaturizing the gadgets to make them easily portable are expected to boost the growth of the screenless display market. The privacy issue that smartphones, tablets, and other electronic gadgets face can be handled with the screenless display using retinal imaging. Growing adoption of electronic devices, combined with rising incomes and technical know-how, is expected to drive sales of screenless displays across countries.

Geographically, the North American region is expected to hold a substantial share of the Screenless Display market with a high growth rate throughout the forecast period.

This is due to the ongoing technical innovations in conjunction with heavy investments in research and development by universities and big players in this region. The Asia-Pacific region is also expected to grow at a high compound annual growth rate owing to increasing demand for consumer electronics. China and Japan are also expected to control a high market share in this segment owing to the developments happening in consumer electronics in these countries.
