Global Microdisplay Market to Reach US$ 9.2 Billion by 2032, Propelled by Expanding Applications

July 29, 2019 | Technology & Media

IMARC Group’s latest report, titled “Microdisplay Market Report by Product (Near-To-Eye (NTE) Devices, Head-Up Display (HUD), Projector, and Others), Technology (Liquid Crystal Display (LCD), Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCOS), Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED), Digital Light Processing (DLP)), Resolution (Lower Than HD, HD, FHD, Higher Than FHD), Brightness (Less Than 500 Nits, 500–1,000 Nits, More Than 1,000 Nits), End-User (Consumer, Industrial and Enterprise, Automotive, Military, Defense, and Aerospace, Sports and Entertainment, Retail and Hospitality, Medical, Education, and Others), and Region 2024-2032”, finds that the global microdisplay market size reached US$ 2.1 Billion in 2023. Microdisplays refer to miniature displays with micro-level resolution and a diagonal screen size of less than two inches. These displays incur lower manufacturing cost and power dissipation, create large images from a lightweight and small unit, and can even integrate drivers with display chip. In recent years, manufacturers have introduced OLED-on-silicon technology that offers an improved image quality through high-resolution, bidirectional, and ultra-low-power microdisplays. OLED microdisplays have also gained immense popularity with the increasing usage of the technology in augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) applications.

Global Microdisplay Market Trends

Microdisplays offer various advantages over direct-view displays such as CRTs and flat-panel LCDs. Owing to this, they are incorporated in a variety of consumer electronics, notably new 3G portable communications devices, digital camera technologies, portable DVD viewers and wearable PCs. Besides this, microdisplays are utilized in several industries ranging from military and defense to automotive, medical and education. In military applications, for instance, aircraft OEMs and military aviation regulators are considering the installation of head-up-displays (HUD) in military aircraft to prevent accidents due to collisions. Moreover, the leading companies are investing in the research and development (R&D) to manufacture next-generation microdisplays with advanced technologies such optical waveguides and micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) based laser scanning, which allow them to reduce the size of HUDs. Looking forward, the market value is projected to reach US$ 9.2 Billion by 2032, registering to grow at a CAGR of 17.1% during 2024-2032.
