Market Scenario


Global Laptop Skins Market size is projected to reach approximately USD 97.03 Million by 2027, at a CAGR of 3.81% from 2020 to 2027. A laptop skin is a precision-cut vinyl adhesive material, generally printed with some design, photograph, or other images, designed for application to the outside of a laptop, generally on the back of the LCD screen. The laptop skin is also referred to as laptop art, laptop scratch guard, stickers, and vinyl stickers in the US and Europe. Laptop skins are highly popular in the US and Europe and are readily available through stores and e-commerce. The growing popularity of print art is majorly driving the sales of laptop skins across the world. Additionally, laptop skins enhance the aesthetic appeal of the device and is further aiding global market growth. However, laptop skins block the heat radiations from laptops, which may hinder the market growth during the forecast period.


The impact of COVID-19 has directly affected the distribution and sales of different products across industries. Many countries are under lockdown and have sealed their borders to curb the spread of the virus. The impact of COVID-19 on logistics has disrupted the supply of raw materials, which has further resulted in reduced production capacity and, thus, product shortages. These factors are expected to cause a price rise in laptop skins in the short run. Moreover, corporate offices and schools have switched to working from the home culture, which has further increased the use of laptops and other devices. Due to this, the use of laptop skins is increasingly being used as guards to protect their devices from external scratches followed by beautification.
