Multi-Function Display Market Segment Insights
Electronic flight display segment is anticipated to dominate the market
Based on devices, the market is divided into helmet mounted display (HMD), heads up display (HUD), and electronic flight display (EFD). The EFD segment is expected to dominate the market in the coming years owing to the rapid production of innovative integrated LED and LCD displays. EFD is a system which displays flight information electronically instead of electromechanically.
It comprises of components including heading indicator, turn indicator, altitude indicator, tachometer, and altimeter, which offer to pilots the exact data and information about weather, obstacles, altitude, and others. This critical information helps pilots to improve the safety and flying experience, thus, boosting the segment growth. However, the heads-up display (HUD) segment is projected to expand at a high CAGR during the analysis period owing to its increasing applications such as improved situational awareness facilities and gaining real-time location information.
LED segment is projected to account for a high market share
On the basis of displays, the multi-function display market is segmented into LED, LCD, active-matrix liquid crystal display (AMLCD), and organic light emitting diode (OLED). The LED segment is projected to account for a high market share in the coming years due to its rising usage in the manufacturing of displays as it offers several benefits including energy efficient, low power consumption, and great color rendering index.
On the other hand, the OLED segment is expected to register as the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period owing to several advantages including flexibility, improved image quality, and simpler design. The OLED-based technology allows users to receive clear image about targets, needs less maintenance, and can be adopted on various displays.
Land segment is anticipated to dominate the market
Based on end-users, the market is segregated into commercial, land, airborne, naval, and military. The land segment is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast years owing to the increasing adoption of multi-function display for land-based defense purposes. However, the airborne segment is projected to account for a major share of the market in the coming years due to the rising demand for aircraft for both military and commercial use.
North America is anticipated to account a large market share
In terms of regions, the global multi-function display market is categorized as Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. North America is anticipated to represent a large market share in the coming years due to the early adoption of advanced technology for aircraft-based electronic products and growing demand for LED displays among a large population who are aware of energy conservation in this region.
Meanwhile, Europe is expected to exhibit a substantial growth rate owing to the increasing adoption of displays for military purposes in several countries in the region. On the other hand, the market in Asia Pacific is projected to expand at a robust CAGR in the coming years due to the rising defense spending among developing economies including India and China due to geo-political tensions in the region.
