Multifunction Display Market Segment Analysis – By Product

By Product, Multifunction Display Market has been segmented into Electronic flight displays, head-up displays, Head Mounted displays (HMD), helmet-mounted displays, and portable multi-function displays. The head-up displays segment is expected to grow at a faster CAGR during the forecast period. Head-up displays (HUDs), which were originally employed in fighter jets, are increasingly making their way into more common automobile interiors and are marketed by manufacturers as a feature that makes driving easier and safer. Head-up displays can project a floating image of information that would be beneficial while driving directly ahead of the windscreen. Most head-up displays, for example, will project everything from speed and cruise control settings to directions and speed limits straight into the driver's field of vision. In April 2021, Audi Expands the Use of Augmented Reality in the Head-Up Display. Automotive Head-Up Displays (HUDs) have the potential to give useful augmented reality information in the driver's field of view.

Multifunction Display Market Segment Analysis – By Technology

By Technology, Multifunction Display Market has been segmented into LED, LCD/AMLCD, TFT, OLED, and Synthetic Vision Systems. The synthetic Vision Systems segment is expected to grow at a faster CAGR during the forecast period. A synthetic vision system (SVS) is an aircraft installation that merges three-dimensional data into user-friendly displays to increase flight crew situational awareness. SVS can be expected to improve situational awareness regardless of weather or time of day. Synthetic vision technologies assist pilots in landing and taking off in low-visibility conditions. Snow whiteout conditions or dense dust clouds are no longer required to prevent aircraft from taking off. Missions can be flown regardless of weather or time of day, and transit flights can take off and land. It helps the aviation industry to overcome various challenges, this is expected to boost the market growth.

Multifunction Display Market Segment Analysis – By Geography

By geography, Multifunction Display Market has been segmented under North America, Europe, APAC, South America and RoW. Because of the increasing number of research efforts for the development of advanced and creative technology, North America will dominate the multi-function display (MFD) market. Due to various technological breakthroughs, North America has the potential to be a major player in the global multi-function market throughout the forecast period. For example, in April 2018, Osram Licht, a major lighting solutions company group, announced a collaboration with the US state of Tennessee to expand LED-based lighting retrofit projects in government facilities throughout the state. Such advancements in LED-based solutions are expected to have an impact on the multi-function display industry. The development of advanced sensor systems and capacitive touch screen panels may also have a substantial beneficial impact on the global multi-function display market during the forecast period.

Multifunction Display Market Drivers
