The panel market accounted for a large share of the industrial display market in 2016 and is expected to continue to dominate the market during the forecast period. Its growth can be attributed to a wide range of applications, ease of use and low cost of equipment. The main applications of panel IDs include operational process control in manufacturing facilities.
Marine displays are primarily used in commercial and marine, cruise ships and yachts and are designed to prevent harsh marine environments. These IDs accounted for the lowest revenue share in 2016, but the market is expected to grow by more than 6% CAGR during the forecast period. Ship real-time sonar systems, battleship and tank balancing systems, Ethernet integrated combat systems, seaport substation unmanned surveillance systems, and ship engine monitoring systems are the main growth drivers in this field.
Reinforced displays are designed to operate reliably under harsh industrial conditions, including extreme temperatures, vibrations, and humid and dusty environments. Applications include military-grade monitors, railway control systems, and manufacturing department task status dashboards.
