Research and Markets: Markets and Opportunities for Transparent Displays: 2014 to 2021 Featuring Google, LG, Apple, & Samsung Amongst Others

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/6clpb9/markets_and) has announced the addition of the "Markets and Opportunities for Transparent Displays: 2014 to 2021" report to their offering.

The market for transparent displays is about to expand dramatically. Smart glasses, such as Google Glass and Augmented Reality (AR) applications have focused attention on displays that can simultaneously display information and function as windows on the real world.

Display firms have begun to respond to these major trends with novel types of transparent displays. To do so they have had to invent new technologies. Transparent TFTs are especially challenging, with the most likely material solution being ZnO, though other options are possible. Hiding backlighting in transparent LCDs is also an issue, creating opportunities for transparent OLED displays; but these have their own challenges too.

This report identifies where the revenues will be generated by transparent displays over the next eight years. In addition to leading edge applications such as smart glasses and AR, this report also considers near-term applications for transparent displays in more mundane applications such as retail and automotive.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
