Flexible Displays Market By Application (Smartphones, Wearables, Television Sets, Automotive Displays), By Substrate (Glass, Plastic, Metal) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

Published: Sep 2017 | Report Code: 58245-09-17

Flexible displays are primarily OLED and AMOLED displays which are either curved, bended or completely bendable and foldable. In the current market scenario, consumer electronics manufacturers have been offering numerous smartphones, television sets and other displays devices in a rigid curved form factor. Although these displays are curved as opposed to the traditional rigid flat ones, such displays do not offer true flexibility to the end-users. Such displays can make use of various substrate ranging from glass, plastic or metals out of which plastic and metals offer lightness and enhanced durability. With growing popularity of curved displays, there has been an increasing interest in the commercial applications for flexible displays into commercially viable end products. Some of the key applications of truly flexible displays being considered currently include smartphones, wearables, television sets, automotive displays, virtual reality (VR) devices, laptops and tablets, among others.

One of the major factors driving the demand for flexible displays is the increasing need for innovation in the smartphones industry. For over a decade, the smartphone industry has witnessed immense technological advancements in the fields of processors, sensors, cameras and other software capabilities. In addition, there has also been a tremendous leap in the display technology used in some of the flagship phones available in the market. However, the rigidness of the displays has constrained the change in a smartphones form factor. With the use of flexible displays, leading smartphone manufacturers are aiming towards design and development of foldable smartphones in the near future. Thereby, the requirement to provide a unique experience to the end-users has been primarily driving the demand for flexible displays. Another key area of interest for the flexible displays market lies in the wearables industry. Incorporation of flexible displays into the current wearable devices would enable providers to offer enhanced functionality and features into small sized electronic devices. However, factors such as lack of designs for commercial electronics products have resulted in the limited manufacturing of flexible displays. Leading manufacturers including Samsung Display, LG Display and Royole Corporation, among others however, have been heavily investing towards building higher production capacity in order to reduce the average cost of flexible displays. Thereby, the prospects for the flexible displays market looks promising in the following years.
