Head-Up Display (HUD) Market

With the emergence of varied technologies including laser display, holographic display, volumetric display, mobile & interactive display, and pico-projector based display, the head-up display market is all set to attain potential growth in the coming years. Increased demand for avionics coupled with the growing fleet size of helicopters, airplanes, and mobile land vehicles has been instrumental in driving the demand for head-up displays in developed markets such as North America and Europe. Although the demand for head-up displays has been majorly concentrated among developed markets, there exist robust growth opportunities for the market in emerging economies of Asia Pacific. This is primarily on account of the latent demand, especially in the automotive segment.

Hismation: Head-Up Display

A Head-Up Display (HUD) is a display system that presents critical flight information and navigation details either on a windshield or a transparent screen called combiner. It helps aircrew, car drivers, and other profession users to get the requisite details and information without requiring them to look elsewhere from their usual viewpoints. A head-up display system has following components:

  • Combiner- It is the surface on which the data is projected
  • Video generation computer- It generates the image
  • Projector unit- It puts out the image to the user

The concept of head-up display traces its roots to the first half of the 20th century. Head-up displays were first employed during the World War II in military aviation.  

Head-Up Display (HUD) Market

The Blackburn Buccaneer built for the British Royal Air Force and Royal Navy was the first aircraft with a built-in heads-up display. It was prototyped in 1958 and flew for the British Royal Air Force and Royal Navy from 1968 until 1994. Pilots gained more accuracy in viewing routes and tracking objects using HUDs as compared to other conventional instruments. As a result, head-up displays which were initially introduced only for the military aviation, gained acceptance among private and commercial aviation. While the earliest use of HUDs in commercial planes were in the 1970s, the technology did not receive wider acceptance until it was incorporated in Boeing 737 in the 1990s. Today, the HUD technology is employed in several CanadaAir and Airbus planes. It helps commercial pilots to take-off or land in severe weather environment and displays information including height from the sea level, airspeed, and flight path among others.

In 1988, General Motors introduced the first heads-up display in a car. These systems were initially used only to display speed, tachometer, and other primary readings from the car’s dashboard. However, with the advancements in technology, head-up displays have evolved to offer additional information including navigation details, alerts and warnings, and infotainment information among others. With the advent of the advanced augmented reality (AR) technology, the head-up displays supporting AR capability and capable of being integrated with infrared cameras, GPS systems, Bluetooth device, and other infotainment products have enabled drivers to get all the requisite information in front of their eyes.

In the beginning of the 21st century, several head-up display models were introduced for sports and consumer space. Since then, number of HUD prototypes have been developed that display the requisite details on the inside of a scuba divers mask or swimmer's goggles.
