Technology Insights

The resistive touch segment accounted for a market share of 43.3% in 2022. Resistive membrane-based IW allows touch-based interactions and can be completely operated with a stylus or a finger. When a finger is pressed on the surface, it is registered as the equivalent of the left mouse click. This smart board technology is easy and natural to use. Additionally, the cost-effective factor is expected to drive the demand for interactive whiteboards integrated with resistive technology over the forecast period.

The infrared segment is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 7.7% during the forecast period. Infrared-based interactive whiteboards are easily accessible and durable as compared to other technology-based interactive whiteboards, such as capacitive or resistive membrane IWBs. IWBs designed with this technology provide multi-touch functionality and are extensively adopted in corporate training rooms, boardrooms, and classrooms. The increasing demand and well-received usage of this type of IWB are expected to propel the growth of the segment over the forecast period.

Form Factor Insights

The portable form factor segment accounted for a market share of 52.4% in 2022. The growth can be attributed to the increased corporate adoption of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policies, growing government initiatives to equip classrooms with high technology, and rising public awareness about the benefits of high-tech education. Portable IWBs are ideal for making last-minute presentations on business trips.

Portable IWBs do not require any external support or surfaces and can be used with multiple fingers. Due to these benefits, portable interactive whiteboards are gaining popularity among consumers, and the market for portable interactive whiteboards is expected to grow significantly.

The fixed form factor segment is anticipated to advance at a CAGR of 6.7%.
