Advancements in technology have led to the development of various digital display devices. Increase in the demand for consumer electronics has further driven the development of digital technologies to make the lives of users more simple and flexible. Among these developments is e-paper display, which is also known as electronic paper display. E-paper displays are display devices that mimic the appearance of a normal ink paper. They reflect light just like paper. E-paper displays provide a platform on which versatile projects can be implemented. E-paper displays are also highly flexible, shatter-proof and lightweight, which has resulted in the high adoption of these displays in the market. The ambient light generated from the environment gets reflected from the surface of the e-paper displays back to the reader’s eyes. Through this feature, the text from traditional ink papers is displayed on e-paper displays.
Vendors in the e-paper display market are focusing on providing full-colour ability to users. They are also focusing on developing newer technologies and applications that are compatible with the frame rate of e-paper displays. The widespread adoption of e-paper displays by the education sector and electronic signage are among the key trends in the market.
E-paper displays Market: Drivers and Restraints
E-paper displays provide high visibility and require very low power to do so. Moreover, these displays provide users paper-like readability, thereby it has been used across various applications including phones, accessories and digital signs. These are some of the factors driving the e-paper displays market. Moreover, e-paper displays are bi-stable, which means the display operates even when there is no power supply. This is another factor driving the e-paper displays market.
However, e-paper displays have a low rate as compared to other electronic displays. Due to this, this restricts the implementation of interactive applications by vendors since they require a high frame rate to operate e-paper displays. These are some of the factors restricting the growth of e-paper displays market. Moreover, after refreshing the screen, a shadow might be visible at some parts of the screen, thereby generating a ghosting effect in e-paper displays. This is another factor hampering the adoption of e-paper displays in the market.
