Markets and Opportunities for Transparent Displays: 2014 to 2021

Markets and Opportunities for Transparent Displays: 2014 to 2021


NanoMarkets believes that the transparent display market will dramatically expand. Smart glasses such as augmented reality and Google Glass applications have focused attention on displays that can simultaneously display information and function as windows on the real world.

Display firms have started responding to these major trends with new types of transparent displays. They had to invent technologies in order to do so. Transparent TFTs are very challenging with ZnO being a very likely material solution even though other options are possible. Another issue is hiding backlighting in transparent LCDs, creating opportunities for transparent OLED displays.
