E-Paper Display Market
 

Overview:

Superior features offered in terms of thickness, power consumption, flexibility, and visibility in daylight make e-paper displays a potential futuristic display technology for both consumer and non-consumer (industrial and commercial) applications. In addition, introduction of large format flexible displays is expected to offer sound opportunity for the market growth during the forecast period 2015 – 2022. Even though the market for e-readers is on a decline, the regulated demand from the segment (which currently accounts for major chunk of the total market revenue) is expected to drive the e-paper display market, at least during the first two-three years of the forecast period 2015 – 2022. These factors are expected to contribute towards a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.6% during the forecast period 2015 – 2022. The e-paper display market is expected to reach US$ 3,837.2 Mn by 2022, expanding at a CAGR of 13.6% during the forecast period 2015 to 2022.

Based on product type, the e-paper display market is categorized into following segments:

  • E-book Readers
  • Mobile Devices and PC
  • Poster and Signage
  • Smart Cards and Smart Packaging
  • Others (Avionics Display, Navigation Screens, etc.)

The following figure represents contribution of these product variants to the global e-paper display market in 2014 and 2022.

E-Paper Display Market

In the base year of 2014, e-book readers was the largest product segment in terms of both revenue and unit shipments. It accounted for over half of the global e-paper display market revenue in 2014. This dominance can be attributed to the widespread use of electrophoretic displays in e-reader devices by the leading vendors including Amazon and Sony (Kindle and Sony Digital Paper DPTS1). Others including book store giant Barnes & Noble and Kobo are focusing on pushing their e-reader devices through bookstores. However, recent trends suggest that the sales of e-book readers are on a decline and thus, we expect the market for e-book readers to slow down in the coming years. On the contrary, signage and poster segment is poised to witness maximum growth during the forecast period 2015 – 2022. The anticipated growth is expected to be driven by the increasing use of e-paper displays in wide range of indoor and outdoor displays such as digital signage and electronic shelf tags. Other product segments including mobile devices & PC and smart cards & smart packaging are also expected to witness steady growth, offering potential growth opportunities in the years to come.

Based on different technologies employed, the global e-paper display market is segmented into following categories

  • Electrophoretic
  • Electrowetting
  • Cholesteric
  • Others (Electrochromic, Electrofluidic Display, Zenithal Bistable Display (ZBD), and Interferometric Modulator Display)

The following figure represents the contribution of different technologies to the global e-paper display market in 2014 and 2022.

E-Paper Display Market

A wide range of e-paper display technologies have been introduced which have led to the emergence of new display-based products. Some of these technologies (some non-emissive and some bistable) include electrophoretic, electrowetting, electrochromic, cholesteric, electrofluidic display, zenithal bistable display, and interferometric modulator display among others. In the base year of 2014, electrophoretic was the major technology employed in electronic paper displays, accounting for over three-fourth of the global market revenue. The technology segment is expected to remain the largest revenue contributing segment in the e-paper display market throughout the forecast period 2015 - 2022. The dominance can be majorly attributed to the regulated demand from the e-readers segment.  Since the technology offers wide viewing angle, better contrast, and can retain image without consuming power, it is increasingly preferred in e-reader devices. Although the segment is poised to remain the largest technology segment over the forecast period, the emergence of other potential technologies like electrowetting and cholesteric is expected to slow down the adoption of electrophoretic technology. The electrowetting technology is poised to witness fastest growth owing to superior benefits offered in terms of reflectivity and contrast over other display technologies. These benefits make them an ideal option for poster and signage applications.

On the basis of geography, the global e-paper display market is segmented into following regions and countries.

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Rest of North America
  • Europe
    • EU7
    • CIS
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
    • Japan
    • China
    • Southeast Asia
    • India
    • Oceania
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of the World
    • Latin America
    • Middle East and Africa

The following figure represents contribution of different regions to the global e-paper display market in 2014.


E-Paper Display Market
 

North America comprising Canada and the U.S. is currently the largest e-paper display market in terms of both revenue and shipments. In the base year of 2014, the region accounted for over 34 percent of the global market revenue. The U.S. is the front runner in display related research, and thus represents the largest individual e-paper display market worldwide. A multitude of research initiatives in the field of display technologies are the prime characteristics of the market that demand the use of advanced e-paper products. Over the forecast period 2015 – 2022, North America is expected to remain the largest e-paper display market. However, Asia Pacific is expected to witness maximum growth, outpacing North America and Europe during the forecast period 2015 - 2022. Evolving digital habits of consumers coupled with the proportionate latent demand for e-reader devices is expected to spur market growth in the region.
