HMD (Head Mounted Display) is a head worn display device that includes a small display optic in front of either one (monocular head mounted displays) or each eye (binocular head mounted displays). The display optic projects a virtual environment in front of wearer's eye. In general, HMDs can be segmented into two broad categories namely see-through' HMDs and look-at' HMDs. The look-at' HMDs allow wearers to see only the CGI (Computer Generated Image) projected by HMDs. On the contrary, see-through' HMDs allow superimposing of a CGI (Computer Generated Image) upon a real world view. The growing popularity for compact, portable and wearable computing devices has lead to the resurgence of head mounted displays in recent years.

Increased penetration of HMDs in the consumer market coupled with declining prices of components such as microdisplays is expected to fuel market growth over the next few years. Microdisplays are one of the key embedded components in every NTE (Near-To-Eye) devices that are coupled with an optic system for providing enlarged, high quality image in front of wearer's eye. Use of HMDs for automotive prototyping in terms of virtually designing a vehicle or a car and evaluating the position of different parts provides a sound opportunity for the growth of HMD market.

North America occupied the largest share of global HMD market in 2012, which can be attributed to technological advancements coupled with increasing demand for wearable computing devices in this region. The Asia Pacific HMD market was valued at USD 83.6 million in 2012, and is expected to be the fastest growing market in the coming years. Surging demand from consumer market and medical services is the key growth factor for this region.

The consumer market is expected to exhibit the fastest growth over the forecast period from 2013 to 2019. Advancements in display technologies with superior video capabilities like 3D view and high resolution is primarily responsible for the projected increase in demand for these devices. The defense service dominated the HMD market in 2012 owing to extensive use of HMDs for the purpose of security, training and simulation and tracking. In terms of type, helmet mounted displays dominated the industry in 2012. However, wearable glass HMD are expected to surpass helmet mounted displays in coming years owing to inclination of users towards light weight head-worn display devices.

Major industry participants include eMagin Corporation, Sony Corporation, Kopin Corporation, Rockwell Collins, Vuzix Corporation, Seiko Epson Corporation, BAE Systems Plc, Elbit Systems Ltd., Universal Display Corporation and others.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
