The rising adoption of augmented reality in various medical applications and surgeries is creating opportunities for the 3D display market. The technology improves the vision capabilities of surgeons, decrease operation time, and pre-operative planning. Therefore, companies are inclined toward the development of innovative surgical solutions. For example, in May 2020, Ocutrx Vision Technologies, LLC has announced the development of its new surgery visualization theater, “Ocutrx OR-Bot”, which is equipped with a 3D 8K display monitor to operate surgical tools.

The COVID-19 outbreak has halted several manufacturing plants worldwide, majorly the consumer electronics and automotive sectors. A decline in the buying power of consumers for luxury products has restrained the production activities of various major players, thereby hampering the demand for 3D displays. Furthermore, the pandemic has also restrained research & development initiatives in the industry owing to lack of workforce and disruption in raw material supplies.

Rising adoption of stereoscopic displays in consumer products

In 2019, the stereoscopic display segment dominated a market share of over 70% and is anticipated to register around 27% growth rate through 2026. The major factor accelerating the stereoscopic display demand is the commercial expansion of home entertainment, stereoscopic cinemas, and gaming applications. These types of 3D displays will reduce crosstalk and enhance the full-color spectrum of displaying images.

Therefore, majority of the market players in the consumer electronics industry, such as Samsung, Panasonic, and Sony, are integrating this display technology to cater to the high demand of consumers. Apart from this, companies are continuously inclined toward the integration of these display systems into new products, such as monitors and digital signages.
