Rugged Display Market is estimated to be valued at USD 9,261.4 million in 2021 and is poised to grow at a significant CAGR of 6.1% over 2022-2028. The rugged display is a high-performance, military-grade flat screen that shows mission-critical data. It can withstand high vibration, harsh temperatures, and wet or dusty environments. It uses innovative lamination materials to reduce reflection, condensation, and dust build-up. Rugged displays with broad viewing angles are popular in cell phones, mobile computers, tablets, laptops, vehicle-mounted computers, and avionic displays. The Smartphone & Handheld Computer segment is anticipated to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast years owing to most government, defense, transportation, and industrial applications requiring display devices that are rugged and portable. With increasing cross-border tensions and terrorist activities, defense organizations are increasingly adopting advanced mobility solutions to digitalize operations and access real-time information, which the smartphone & handheld computer segment is anticipated to grow. The increasing technological shift in display technology and the development of rugged display devices with high specifications, the lower total cost of ownership (TCO) offered by ruggedized products compared to consumer-grade devices in harsh environments, and the rising demand for HMI and IoT in various industries are driving the market growth.
