Transparent Display Market Trends

  • Increasing use of transparent displays across marketing industries is driving the market growth

Market CAGR for transparent displays is driven by the rising popularity of devices like smart glasses and HMDs and the expanding use of transparent displays in the advertising sector. With the help of technical developments, displays, and display technologies have developed over time to offer improved resolution and lower power consumption. The development of the transparent display industry has been made possible by advancements in nanoparticle technology and transparent sensors in electronic circuits. A flexible display that is more engaging for the consumer is currently being developed to replace rigid, square panels. This has given the transparent display sector a sizable window of opportunity to expand.

OLEDs have surpassed all other display technologies for transparent displays in recent years in terms of usage. Transparent OLEDs can be created since the real OLED materials are transparent. This has made it possible for a number of display makers to use OLEDs to create and produce OLED screens. Given the advantages, numerous suppliers have begun making significant investments in OLED R&D. OLED transparent displays are becoming more prevalent on the market as a result of rising demand from head-mounted display (HMD) providers. In 2021, headset hardware sales for the AR/VR market are expected to surpass USD 45 billion, according to a report by Intel Corporation. In addition, hardware sales in 2021 topped 80 billion units, a huge increase from the 9.4 billion units predicted to be sold in the two-year period. Since displays are crucial to the AR/VR sector, it is anticipated that these trends will continue to expand the market for vendors of transparent displays.

However, the high initial cost and poor consumer penetration have a significant impact on the industry under study. The high price of the transparent displays may limit the market's expansion during the projection period because most consumers in some of the largest markets, including India, China, Brazil, etc., are price sensitive. Thus, affecting the transparent display market revenue.

Transparent Display Industry Developments

February 2024: At the Mobile World Congress (MWC), which takes place annually in Barcelona, technology firms set up their booths in order to provide attendees with a peek of the latest developments in consumer electronics devices such as smartphones, PCs, and other electronic devices.

The world's foremost personal computer manufacturer, Lenovo, presented a prototype laptop with a display that was see-through during the 2024 edition of the Mobile World Congress. The new "Lenovo ThinkBook Transparent Display Laptop Concept" is equipped with a Micro-LED transparent display that measures 17.3 inches in the diagonal. 

According to the business, the see-through display is the most suitable option for providing an immersive viewing experience while augmented reality material is being played.

Additionally, it is equipped with a sophisticated camera that is able to recognize items that are invisible to the naked eye. Users have the ability to search for further information by circling it on the screen.

In addition, there are a number of applications possible for interior designers and architects. It is possible for the camera included into the Lenovo laptop to lock onto a specific location behind the laptop, such as a window grill in the family room. Through the use of this function, for instance, an interior designer would be able to draw drapes, ornamental plant pots, or showpieces on the screen of the laptop in order to convey to buyers a design concept of how the curtains or a showpiece item will seem in a certain location.

At a maximum brightness of one thousand nits, the transparent screen may transform into an opaque one for use in various applications. In addition, the idea laptop is equipped with a keyboard that is built on a touch display and supports stylus.

The combination of artificial intelligence with transparent displays will make it possible to engage with data and applications in new ways, which will in turn provide possibilities for the development of new features and form factors. In a statement, a Lenovo spokeswoman stated, "This proof-of-concept offers a futuristic perspective on artificial intelligence personal computers by blending digital and physical environments in a way that can enhance user experiences in ways that were never imagined."
