Insights on the E-Paper Display Global Market to 2028 - Bendable and Foldable Displays Presents Opportunities -

DUBLIN--()--The "E-Paper Display Market By Product, Technology - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2020 - 2028" report has been added to's offering.

The e-paper display market is expected to reach US$ 5.9Bn by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 8.2% during the forecast period 2020 to 2028. This report analyzes the global e-paper display market in terms of product types, technology, and geography.

On the basis of product types, the market is segmented into e-book readers, mobile phones and PC, poster and signage, smart packaging and smart cards, and others (navigation screens, avionic displays, etc.). Similarly, on the basis of technology, the market for e-paper displays is further classified into electrophoretic, electrowetting, cholesteric, and others (electrochromic, etc.). The geographical distribution of the global e-paper display market considered in this study encompasses regional markets such as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, and Latin America.

Superior features offered in terms of thickness, power consumption, flexibility, and visibility in daylight make e-paper displays a potential futuristic display technology for both consumer and non-consumer (industrial and commercial) applications. In addition, the introduction of large format flexible displays is expected to offer a sound opportunity for market growth during the forecast period 2020 - 2028. Even though the market for e-readers is on a decline, the regulated demand from the segment (which currently accounts for major chunk of the total market revenue) is expected to drive the e-paper display market, at least during the first two-three years of the forecast period 2020 - 2028. These factors are expected to contribute towards a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.2% during the forecast period 2020 - 2028.

SRC (Segment-Region-Country) Analysis

Overall, the research study provides a holistic view of the global e-paper display market, offering market size and estimates for the period from 2020 to 2028, keeping in mind the above-mentioned factors.

Based on product type, the e-paper display market is categorized into the following segments:

  • E-book Readers
  • Mobile Devices and PC
  • Poster and Signage
  • Smart Cards and Smart Packaging
  • Others (Avionics Display, Navigation Screens, etc.)

In 2019, e-book readers were the largest product segment in terms of both revenue and unit shipments. It accounted for over half of the global e-paper display market revenue in 2019. This dominance can be attributed to the widespread use of electrophoretic displays in e-reader devices by the leading vendors including Amazon and Sony (Kindle and Sony Digital Paper DPTS1). Others including bookstore giant Barnes & Noble and Kobo are focusing on pushing their e-reader devices through bookstores.

However, recent trends suggest that the sales of e-book readers are on a decline and thus, we expect the market for e-book readers to slow down in the coming years. On the contrary, the signage and poster segment is poised to witness maximum growth during the forecast period 2020 - 2028. The anticipated growth is expected to be driven by the increasing use of e-paper displays in a wide range of indoor and outdoor displays such as digital signage and electronic shelf tags. Other product segments including mobile devices & PC and smart cards & smart packaging are also expected to witness steady growth, offering potential growth opportunities in the years to come.
