Canada 3D display market

The gaming industry has witnessed significant changes over the past few years in terms of technology, gaming experience, and graphics. The industry is moving toward enhancing complete gaming experience with 3D technology, which in turn, is stimulating market growth. In addition, growing interest in OLED and LED technologies, which offer improved picture quality and performance compared to traditional display technologies, is anticipated to benefit the overall market. 

Evolving consumer preference and awareness regarding high definition technology has resulted in the expansion of the industry. Increasing adoption of digital cinema screens capable of delivering 3D viewing experience and growing consumer inclination toward 3D movies are estimated to augment the market. Burgeoning incorporation of these displays in numerous devices such as monitors, smartphones, TVs, notebook PC, and digital photo frames is also poised to play a pivotal role in the growth of the market.

Emerging economies including India and China are likely to experience tremendous growth over the forecast period owing to widening base of middle-class population and improving standards of living. Projectors and monitors, which are among the key applications of 3D displays, are expected to register a sharp rise in sales in the near future owing to changing consumer preferences and surging demand for high definition graphics. High cost, coupled with lack of 3D content and health-related issues such as headaches, nausea, and motion and eye disorders, is anticipated to hinder market growth.

Product Insights

The stereoscopic displays segment is estimated to hold the largest market share throughout the forecast period. This can be attributed to widespread use in the entertainment and gaming industries for a range of applications such as movies, animations, academics, and video games. Furthermore, advancements in autostereoscopic technology and reduced costs of stereoscopic products are contributing to the growth of the segment.

The global volumetric 3D display market surpassed USD 11.3 billion in 2016 and is projected to witness noteworthy growth over the forecast period. These products possess the ability to generate a true 3D image, which can be viewed by users without a headgear. This is poised to fuel adoption in events, art galleries, and others.

The head mounted displays (HMD) product segment is likely to register the highest CAGR during the same period, owing to its growing popularity in sectors such as science, engineering, and medicine. The growth of the segment can be attributed to rapid technological advancements and declining prices of 3D displays.

Technology Insights

The LED technology segment accounted for the leading share in the overall market revenue in 2016. LED panels are widely used as backlighting solutions in order to enhance image quality and get fast response. Several market players are focusing on development of LED-based displays for numerous applications, including TVs, smartphones, monitors, and HMDs. The segment, along with OLED, is poised to make inroads in the shares of DLP-based technology.

The OLED technology segment is likely to exhibit the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of the segment can be attributed to increasing adoption across various devices and improved picture quality and performance compared to traditional displays.

Application Insights

TV was the largest revenue segment in 2016.
