Volumetric Display Market Research, 2031

The global volumetric display market size was valued at $1.4 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $14.8 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 27% from 2022 to 2031.A volumetric display is a type of 3D display technology that creates visual representations of objects or scenes with depth and volume. A 3D display refers to a type of display technology that creates three-dimensional images or visual representations of objects in space, usually without the need for special glasses or other devices. It aims to provide a more immersive and realistic viewing experience compared to traditional two-dimensional displays. In a volume display, the image appears to occupy a certain volume of space rather than being confined to a flat surface. It can be viewed from multiple angles and perspectives, giving viewers a sense of depth, and allowing them to see different sides of the object as they move around it.
