The Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2.29 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 11.% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) is a semiconductor material used in display panel applications and thin-film transistors (TFTs). IGZO delivers high electron mobility with low power consumption, enabling thin, energy-efficient displays for devices like smartphones, tablets, laptops, and wearables. IGZO TFTs allow for smaller pixel sizes and bendable display panels compared to conventional technologies like amorphous silicon.
Increasing demand for energy-efficient display panels in consumer electronics is a major driver for the IGZO market. IGZO TFTs require much lower power to operate compared to amorphous silicon and allow for thinned, lightweight displays. This makes IGZO an attractive option for applications involving compact, portable devices that demand extended battery life. IGZO is also gaining popularity due to its superior optical characteristics for high-resolution display panels. IGZO pixels can be packed tighter together compared to rivals, enabling increasingly sharp display technologies like 4K and above. The material’s transparency also provides design flexibility.
Market dynamics will discuss the two drivers and its explanations regarding growing usage of IGZO due to its application in energy efficient and high resolution display panel.
The Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide market is dominated by the display segment which holds around 60% of the total market share. This is because IGZO is increasingly being used in the display segment owing to its superior conductivity and transparency properties as compared to other materials like amorphous silicon. IGZO provides high definition displays with wider viewing angles and lower power consumption.
Political: There are no major political risks impacting the IGZO market currently.
Economic: The growing demand for consumer electronics and infotainment devices from emerging economies is driving the economic growth of the IGZO market.
