The Global Mobile 3D Market is valued at USD 0.211 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach a value of USD 4.70 billion by the end of 2022, growing at a projected CAGR of 55.8% during the forecast period of 2017 - 2022. A 3D enabled mobile employs stereoscopy or any other 3D depth technique to convey the depth perception to the viewer. Few 3D mobiles have glass-free 3D display and few high-end mobiles have a 3D camera and an HDMI 3D output. Real-time object analysis, orienting, locating and identifying are the major features of mobile 3D. Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), gesture recognition in great detail, measuring dynamically changing objects, green screening without a screen in broadcasting, advanced facial recognition by identifying varying faces and non-static faces are a few major applications of mobile 3D.
Global smartphone usage has witnessed rapid increase. Mobile 3D market is driven by improved mobile phone in terms of display performance, computational power, optimization of size and price; auto-stereoscopic technology enabling users to view 3D displays without glasses, and availability of good quality 3D content. However, the high cost of 3D devices and content, difficulties in creating 3D content due to poor brightness, more power consumption and resolution penalty due to 3D displays may hinder the growth of the market.
The inflow of service requests to software vendors has increased to improve user interface applications to implement 3D features across the available platforms. The extensive usage of 3D in entertainment industry prompts users to look into 3D mobile and video games. The application and technological developments provide a great platform for growth opportunities in the market.
On the basis of 3D enabled mobile devices the market is segmented into smartphones, notebooks, tablets, eyewear etc. By device components, the market is segmented into image sensors and 3D displays. By 3D applications, the market is segmented into animation, navigation and maps, mobile gaming, mobile advertisements etc. Mobile gaming applications are expected to register high growth over the forecast period owing to the increased demand for 3D gaming on mobile phones.
Due to the presence of many market players in North America and Asia-Pacific regions, the markets in here are expected to witness high growth.
