Market Overview:

The global linear polarizer film market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for linear polarizers in various applications, such as industry and daily use. In terms of type, the high contrast segment is expected to hold the largest share of the global linear polarizer film market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to its ability to reduce glare and improve image quality in displays and optical systems.

Global Linear Polarizer Film Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Linear Polarizer Film is a thin film used to polarize light. It can be used to reduce glare and reflections, or to improve the contrast of an image.

High contrast:

High contrast is the difference between an image's apparent brightness and its actual brightness. The apparent brightness of an object is determined by the light intensity that a human eye perceived, while the actual brightness depends on how much light falls on a sensor. In photography, high contrast refers to an image's ability to differentiate itself from its background; in other words, it measures the difference between black and white levels in an image.

High Extinction:

High Extinction is a special effect created when the light source is dimmed or turned off completely. The effect can be seen when there are no bright spots left in the image and it becomes black. High extinction can be used to create a dramatic look by using dark areas as well as light areas contrastingly.

The technique was firstly used in movies, but now it's being widely applied in still images too.

Application Insights:

The industry application segment accounted for the largest share of more than 50.0% in 2017 and is projected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The growing demand for LCDs in various industries including automotive, healthcare, and defense is expected to drive the product demand over the coming years.

The daily use segment is anticipated to exhibit a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to increasing adoption of advanced polarizing glasses by professional photographers and others for protection against glare at sporting events or during outdoor activities such as hiking or biking. In addition, rising awareness regarding safety along with improved performance offered by these products is likely to propel their demand in daily use applications such as watching TV or movies at home on a large screen television set-top box (STB).

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The region is expected to witness a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to increasing demand for high contrast and visibility products from various applications including automotive, aviation, defense & security, marine, railways among others.

The U.S., being one of the most developed countries in terms of technology has led to an increase in adoption of linear polarizer films across various industries such as healthcare & life sciences and transportation among others which is anticipated to propel regional growth over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is expected to grow at a significant rate owing to rising product demand from daily use applications such as smartphones and laptops among others particularly in China.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for LCD televisions and smartphones
  • Growing awareness about the benefits of polarizers in optical devices
  • Rising demand from the automotive industry for polarized windshields and sunroofs
  • Proliferation of 3D movies and television content
  • Technological advancements that improve the performance of linear polarizer films
