Its growing use in art and culture as a potent technology for displaying and preserving objects has emerged as a key parameter fuelling the demand from the global UHD panel market. While the high cost of integrating UHD technology into existing technological framework could inhibit its growth to an extent, but continuous innovation lowering costs of UHD displays is likely to create lucrative opportunities for the manufacturers to capitalize on.
North America to Remain Largest Regional Market for UHD Panels
Amongst the wide range of UHD technology applications, the segment of display screens and walls is anticipated to register the most promising CAGR of 17.5% in the next five years. Escalating demand for high-definition display screens for digital signage in the commercial sector will give an incredible impetus to the demand for UHD technology in this segment. Of the key regional markets, North America will remain undisputed as the UHD market leader till 2020 owing to high consumer awareness and acceptance of products integrated with UHD panels. In 2013, Europe and North America collectively held over 70% of the global UHD panel market. Asia Pacific is projected to stage the fastest growth as the regional market for UHD panel at a 15.1% CAGR.
Leading companies such as LG Display Co., Samsung Electronics, Sony Electronics, Inc., and Toshiba Corporation dominate the global UHD panel market. Samsung and LG Corporation led the global market for UHD panels in 2013, collectively accounting for 47% of the total revenue generated in the market.
