An e-book reader, also known as an e-reader, is a mobile electronic device used primarily to read digital e-books and periodicals. It has a monochrome display, also known as electronic paper and e-ink display, which is less strenuous for the eyes, glare-free, and can be easily viewed in sunlight. In addition, it is designed to operate for long hours while consuming minimal power. E-books can also store an extensive collection of books and other publications. Owing to these properties, they are widely adopted by students, adults, and professionals across the globe for reading purposes.

Global E-book Reader Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the rapid digital advancement in the education sector and the rising adoption of e-learning in the curriculum to improve the personal learning experience of students. In addition, students, especially in universities, are shifting from conventional books to e-books to enhance their overall reading experience. This is escalating the demand for e-book readers as they provide free e-books and allow readers to search for keywords and add notes and hyperlinks. Besides this, the introduction of advanced e-book readers with innovative features is also contributing to the market growth. Nowadays, various key players are offering additional features, such as foreign language learning, an offline dictionary, navigation buttons, access to a cloud for managing purchased books, color-adjustable front lights, and extended audiobook storage to strengthen their foothold in the market. Furthermore, the increasing penetration of high-speed internet and the changing lifestyles and inflating income levels of consumers are also creating a positive market outlook across the globe. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market value to reach US$ 124.4 Million by 2032.
