Due to slump in the market in 2008, the market for microdisplays was hit and a lot of companies either closed down or were acquired by the other companies. The market is now on the rise due to increase in the use of microdisplays in smart phones and televisions. The increasing number of applications is now gaining momentum.
Microdisplays, with the help of head mounted displays, will be majorly seen in the automotive industry for automotive prototyping in terms of virtually designing a car and the exact position of different parts can be evaluated and changed accordingly. They are also used in the automotive sector for providing additional information to the driver with respect to night vision. The digital printing and the data storage are also potential applications in the microdisplay market. The use of microdisplays in aerospace applications refers to flight training and simulation where the key product used is a head mounted display.
The global microdisplays market is expected to reach $995.0 million by 2016 from just about $250 million in 2011 at a CAGR of 31.82% from 2011 to 2016. The use of these displays in the head mounted displays will indirectly help the microdisplays market to increase. These head mounted displays are used extensively in the military and the medical field.
