Market Definition

The Volumetric Display Market size was valued at 321.2 million in 2023 and is predicted to reach 1972.2 million by 2030 with a CAGR of 29.6% from 2024-2030. A volumetric display is a type of display technology that creates a three-dimensional (3D) image in space, rather than on a flat screen. It works by creating a series of 2D images, which are projected in rapid succession, to give the impression of a 3D image. This allows the image to be viewed from multiple angles, giving the illusion of a true 3D object.

There are several different types of volumetric displays including laser-based volumetric displays, holographic displays, and others. Volumetric displays create the illusion of a 3D image in space, by projecting light into a volume of space, rapidly moving a 2D image through a volume of space, using fixed transparent layers with a 2D image projected on each of them or using holographic techniques. Volumetric displays are still in the early stage of development, but researchers and companies are working to create more affordable and effective solutions.

Market Dynamics and Trends

The volumetric display market is driven by the increasing demand for high-resolution and realistic visuals in various industries such as gaming, entertainment, and advertising.
