February 25, 2016 – Versatile New Applications from Display Labels to Traffic Lights to Strengthen the Global e-Paper Display Market, According to a New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

GIA launches comprehensive analysis of industry segments, trends, growth drivers, market share, size and demand forecasts on the global e-Paper Display market. The global market for e-Paper Display is projected to reach US$3.1 billion by 2022, bolstered by promising new incredible applications in a wide range of indoor and outdoor displays such as traffic lights, digital signage, and electronic shelf labels, among others.

e-Paper or electronic paper is a breakthrough display technology that enables the development of advanced electronic displays. e-Papers, also known as electronic ink, are perceived as a disruptive technology in the field of displays, owing to their lightweight, durability, capability to support readability in direct sunlight, high flexibility, as well as relatively low cost of manufacturing. While e-paper displays are widely used in e-readers for their high readability characteristics, the technology is gradually finding new application in public signage displays, mobile handsets, smart watches, smart cards, smart-shelf labels, information displays and smart packaging, among numerous others.

Despite the shrinking market for E-ink e-readers against the backdrop of the growing proliferation of multi-functional smartphones and tablets, the growth in the market will be supported by emerging new applications with promising commercial value. Few of the factors aggravating the declining health of the e-reader market include limited functionality of displaying just static pages and content, low screen refresh/response rate, electrochemical complexity, dim color hues, black-and-white displays, and inability to support video viewing. However, with major players such as Amazon focusing on China for growth, and Kobo concentrating on marketing their e-readers in bookstores, the life of the e-reader market will be stretched a little longer. Few of the major factors giving e-paper displays a fresh lease of life in new applications include continuous improvements in display technology, breakthrough development of large format bendable electronic paper displays, and innovation in color e-paper displays, among others. The replacement of glass thin-film transistor (TFT) backplane with plastic is additionally helping expand the versatility of e-paper, opening up new commercial opportunities in displays for bendable electronics. Other factors expected to support future growth in the market include increasing environmental awareness, demand for lightweight display solutions, and innovations enabling integration of video and animation features for a more enriching user experience.

As stated by the new market research report on e-Paper Display, the United States represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 16.1% over the analysis period, led by the still large untapped potential for low cost, and easy-to-use e-readers among the newly emerging base of middle class population with evolving digital habits commensurate with early adopters of technology.

Major players covered in the market include Displaydata Ltd., Display Innovations, E Ink Holdings Inc., Gamma Dynamics LLC, Kent Displays Inc., LANCOM Systems GmbH, Liquavista B.V., Pervasive Displays Inc., Plastic Logic Germany, QualComm MEMS Technologies, Xerox Corporation, and Zikon Inc., among others.
