Markets and Opportunities for Transparent Displays: 2014 to 2021
July 23, 2014
Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Markets and Opportunities for Transparent Displays: 2014 to 2021 http://www.reportlinker.com/p02027607/Markets-and-Opportunities-for-Transparent-Displays-2014-to-2021.html Summary NanoMarkets believes that the market for transparent displays is about to expand dramatically. "Smart glasses," such as Google Glass and Augmented Reality (AR) applications have focused attention on displays that can simultaneously display information and function as windows on the real world. Display firms have begun to respond to these major trends with novel types of transparent displays. To do so they have had to invent new technologies. Transparent TFTs are especially challenging, with the most likely material solution being ZnO, though other options are possible. Hiding backlighting in transparent LCDs is also an issue, creating opportunities for transparent OLED displays; but these have their own challenges too.
