Global volumetric display market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period due to factors such as advancements in 3D imaging technologies and rising demand from healthcare and medical industries. Volumetric displays are increasingly being used for medical visualization since these provide stereoscopic 3D images of body organs and systems without the need for additional accessories like glasses. Their application in surgical planning and simulation boosts their adoption. With continued technological improvements and declining costs, volumetric displays will likely gain more penetration across multiple industries in the near future.

Holographic Displays for Education

Advancements in volumetric displays bring possibilities for more impactful and interactive educational tools. Three-dimensional holograms and models generated through volumetric display technologies allow visual concepts to be presented and explored from any angle in accurate, true-to-life proportions. Complex scientific and anatomical concepts that are often difficult to grasp in textbooks or on flat screens can be made easier to understand through the use of highly realistic and manipulable 3D renderings. Students will be able to dissect virtual organs, zoom in on microscopic structures, and manipulate virtual simulations in a safe and repeatable manner. This hands-on, experiential learning through holograms has potential to boost student engagement and comprehension across a wide range of educational domains from biology and chemistry to engineering, design, architecture and more. Educational institutions are recognizing value in incorporating emerging 3D display technologies to enhance traditional lecture-based methods. If costs continue decreasing, volumetric displays may become widespread classroom learning tools and change the landscape of education.

Insights, by Display Type, static volume display contributes the highest share of the market owing to its superior image quality and stability.

Static volume display segment is estimated to hold the largest market share of 58.9% in 2024.

Static volume displays employ various techniques to render images by controlling the optical properties of their display materials. Compared to swept-volume displays that use moving components like DLP chips or laser projectors to generate 3D lightfields, static displays have no mechanically scanning parts. This makes them more robust and reliable for continuous operation over long durations.

Static displays produce imagery of unsurpassed quality due to their ability to simultaneously illuminate all pixels in the 3D lightfield. There are no issues of flickering, motion blur or impaired depthcueing that can occur with mechanically scanned displays. These render sharply defined volumetric objects with consistent brightness and contrast levels. Some techniques also offer ultra-high resolution that surpasses current swept-volume technologies.

The absence of any vibrating components makes static displays virtually maintenance-free. Their fully solid-state design enables rugged form factors suitable for industrial and outdoor use cases. Static displays do not require frequent servicing or downtime for part replacements, ensuring high reliability even in mission-critical applications. Some technologies also boast very low power consumption compared to laser-based swept displays.

Overall, static volume displays have emerged as the preferred solution for applications needing photorealistic 3D imagery as well as robustness, stability and a long operational lifespan. This explain their dominance in the volumetric display market over more transient display types like those based on mechanical scanning. Innovation in static display engineering will likely further cement their leadership.

Insights, by Application - Rising proliferation of medical imaging can drive the medical segment growth

The medical segment is estimated to hold the largest share of 35.6% in 2024 in the volumetric display market due to the growing importance and adoption of advanced medical imaging technologies. Volumetric displays offer notable advantages over traditional 2D and 3D displays for medical imaging applications. These can generate larger 3D imagery that provides better visualization of complex internal structures and anatomical features. This high-fidelity 3D visualization enables more accurate medical diagnoses and treatment planning.

A key driver of growth in the medical volumetric display market has been the expanding use of advanced medical scanning technologies like CT, MRI, ultrasound and PET. As these modalities generate increasingly detailed 3D medical scans, there is a growing need for display technologies that can truly represent this wealth of 3D data. Volumetric displays are uniquely positioned to fulfill this need by visualizing full volumetric medical scans without compromising data resolution or depth cueing. This allows doctors to perceive internal structures, tissues and anomalies in an ultra-realistic manner that closely resembles direct observation during medical procedures.

The medical industry has also seen growing applications of virtual and augmented reality technologies. Volumetric displays integrate well with these environments to generate immersive 3D medical content for applications like surgical simulation, radiology training and patient education. Their realistic 3D imagery makes a highly engaging and effective interface. This has fuelled further research into medical VR/AR applications based on volumetric displays.

Overall, the ability of volumetric displays to accurately portray the complexity and nuance of 3D medical content positions them as the ideal visualization platform as diagnostic and interventional medical technologies continue to generate richer and multi-dimensional patient data. This facilitates improved communication of medical information between doctors as well as for doctor-patient interaction and informed consent. These factors will continue driving significant growth in the medical segment of the volumetric display market.
