Consumer electronics

Growing adoption of for smartphones and tablets and LEDs for TVs and other appliances drives the market in the consumer electronics segment. Also, OLED TVs are gaining traction among consumers. The growing demand for high resolution and rich color quality displays is driving the adoption of OLED TVs.

Also, there is an increasing demand for ultra-high-definition (UHD) LCD TVs, primarily 4K TVs of 40 inches and larger. There is a significant amount of UHD content being produced by Netflix, Amazon (Amazon Instant Video service), Ultraflix, and YouTube. Increase in UHD content by service providers will drive the 4K TV market, which will further intensify the demand for LED FPDs, contributing to the growth of the market during the forecast period.


Increased demand for FPD equipment by automobile display manufacturers drives the market. This segment will witness a decline over the forecast period, as the FPD manufacturers for automobiles have made substantial investments in 2015 and 2016 alone, and hence, there would be very limited scope for capacity expansion in the future, hindering the growth of revenues from this segment. Moreover, the latest generation of automobiles feature LCD displays, as AMOLEDs are too expensive to have a scalable business opportunity for AMOLED-based FPDs from the automobile sector. This is because, automobile manufacturers have very limited scope for using expensive display systems, except for the high-end manufacturers of luxury brands, who themselves have a limited target market.


The global FPD equipment market in the others segment includes healthcare devices, , and telecommunication segment. This segment is driven by the demand for FPDs by device manufacturers catering to the military and defense, healthcare, and telecommunications sector.

“The military and defense system requires advanced radar systems, weapon systems, central control units, and advanced monitoring systems including surveillance and spy systems. All these systems and equipment imbibe FPDs to enhance user interface,” says Sunil.

Similarly, the healthcare sector uses medical equipment such as different types of body scanners and X-ray machines that feature LCD displays. Increased demand for this equipment will fuel the market during the forecast period.
