Generally, HMDs are provided with liquid crystal displays (LCDs) since they are more compact, efficient, lightweight, and inexpensive than CRT displays. Moreover, LCDs provide better screen resolution and brightness. HMDs are majorly used in various applications including military, gaming, medical, sports, training and simulation, engineering, etc. Currently, optic head-mounted display (OHMD) is a wearable display that can reflect projected images and enables the user to see through it.

The global head-mounted display (HMD) market is estimated to account for US$ 5.5 Bn in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 46.0 % over the forecasted period 2022-30.
