Over the next five years, the market for mobile protective cases is expected to register a CAGR of 6.13 %.

Innovation in the product line in terms of extra protective features such as shockproof cases is anticipated to create an opportunity for the global market in the future. Rising demand from youth for mobile cases and covers with striking designs is a key factor fueling demand in the market. Many smartphone brands are focusing on design features with high protective strength as millennials are more attracted to design covers. In Asian countries like China, Japan, and India, customized cases are in vogue. The market players are launching cases according to consumer requirements. For instance, in April 2022, OtterBox launched new cases for the iPad Air (5th generation). The cases were introduced as part of the Symmetry Series 360 Elite.The cases were made of spring-inspired colors like orange and pink.

The market is being driven by a big drop in the average selling price of smartphones, which gives consumers more options in the form of different smartphone models in different price ranges. Furthermore, due to the adoption of an open-source operating system (OS) by mobile phone makers, competitors are reducing their prices to gain sales. With a low selling price, more customers are being influenced to purchase a phone, eventually increasing the sale of protective covers. Furthermore, online websites like Amazon, Flipkart, Yahoo, and many other shopping sites also have multiple options for mobile cases, as well as discounts and offers on the products, which is why people are buying the cases at cheap prices with good quality material.

Mobile Protective Cases Market Trends

Rugged Case to Witness a Significant Demand

With the increasing adoption of smartphones, rugged phone cases that can help protect the handset from knocks and bumps and also prevent a cracked screen are currently in higher demand. With the increase in sales of smartphones in the United States, the demand for rugged cases for mobile protection is increasing, especially for iPhone users, and many iPhone case manufacturers offer a rugged case series with 360 degrees of defense. One of these cases may include air-cushioned corners, resilient outer layers of plastic, and a clear, touch-sensitive screen protector. For instance, in November 2022, OtterBox launched waterproof cases for the iPhone for the first time, which are from the Fre Series, the no. 1 waterproof case series in the United States. The Fr Series covers your phone on all sides, keeps up with every activity, and survives hard falls along the way. The Fr Series has waterproof, drop-proof, dust-proof, and dirt-proof protection to keep iPhones in pristine condition. It is water-tested to two meters (6.6 feet) for up to an hour, drop-proof to two meters, and completely sealed from dust, dirt, and snow.
