Smartwatch Display Panel Market Outlook – 2030

The global smartwatch display panel market size was valued at $1.21 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $4.06 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 14.1% from 2021 to 2030. Smartwatch is a next-generation wearable computer in the form of a watch. It offers some of the prominent features such as text messaging, emails, appointments, app alerts, and voice calls. Hence, to have seamless experience of smartwatch, smartwatch display panel is the most important and key component of the watch. 

The smartwatch display panel is generally less than 2 inches, which increases the need for high resolution in pixels per inch to provide sharp and easy-to-read fine text and graphics. In addition, it needs to produce fairly bright images, as watches are often viewed in high ambient light. A larger color gamut is required to counteract color washout from ambient light. Moreover, vibrant saturated colors are helpful while reading text and graphics information. Thus, smartwatch display panel market plays a crucial role in sales of smartwatches globally.

Analyst Review

Smartwatches were introduced to provide users instant access to digital activity. Smartwatches have built-in computing devices that can perform almost all the basic mobile phone functions. They are lightweight, which allows the users to wear a smartwatch to get access to digital data 24/7. In a smartwatch, display is of utmost important component, as it acts as an interface to operate the gadget.

Currently, LED-backlit LCD and OLED are highly used in display panels for smartwatch. Furthermore, ongoing R&D activities to produce more reflective, transflective, curved, and bendable smartwatch displays is expected to notably contribute toward the market growth. One such instance is usage of microLED technology in smartwatch display panels. Key players of the market are keen to observe various display technologies and strategies that can be introduced for smartwatches, the consumer responses to them, and how they will evolve over time.

Smartwatch display panels are observed to have limited interactive interface. In accordance, Samsung Electronics demonstrated an Around Device Interface (ADI), wherein the user is able to make gestures on the back of their hand and have those gestures translate to on-screen actions. ADI is anticipated to be an efficient way to expand the interaction space on small devices such as smartwatches. Hence, technological advancements in display panels for smartwatch are anticipated to revolutionize the smartwatch industry.
