Light Field Market Trends

  • Industrial sectors' emerging 4D and 5D technologies drive market growth

Market CAGR for the light field is driven by the various key players dedicated to incorporating light field technology in an extensive range of products. Further, the market is witnessing expansion over the forecast period as cameras are being adopted for various applications in industries like military and defense, hospitality, and entertainment. In addition, the emerging 4D and 5D technologies in the industrial sectors are aiding many business processes to perform accurately and efficiently by providing a clear view and checking on the operability and functioning of their parts. Other products, like displays, are also observing an increased adoption of this technology, fueling the market growth of the light field industry over the forecast period.

Additionally, rising demand for HD viewing experience drives the market growth. Light field imaging is one of the most studied 3D imaging technologies because of its potential to create a natural viewing environment. After the evolution of 3D technology, developments can be witnessed in terms of enhancing content quality and improving the user-viewing experience. 3D technology has enabled providing high-definition (HD) content to enhance the viewing experience through advanced 3D-enabled devices such as 3D display units and VR devices. Apple's latest patent describes using a camera array for immersive augmented reality (AR), live display walls, head-mounted displays, video conferencing, and similar applications based on a user's point of view. HD 3D experience helps in acquiring more customers. It provides an enhanced visual experience regarding the reality, capturing attention and increasing emotional response. This improvement in the user-viewing experience would help various companies examine their products in detail and make further enhancements to make them effective.

Holographic light field displays are set to help retailers take customer experience one step further by offering interactive, lifelike shopping experience by providing images with 3D depth with complex, realistic light effects. Showcasing products on light-field displays allow customers to view the details, texture, and color of items without handling a physical item. This also removes the need for immersive digital technology such as VR glasses.

For instance, in May 2020, 3D fusion imaging helped improve coronary artery disease diagnosis. This technique helps easier and more accurately identify areas of narrowing in coronary arteries. This technology incorporating devices is easy to use and hence finds enhanced use in the healthcare sector for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes. Thus, driving the light field market revenue.
