Global Smartphone Screen Protectors Market Size, Share and Share

New York, June 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — announces the publication of the report “Global Smartphone Screen Protector Market Size, Share & Industry Trends Analysis Report By Sales Channel, By Material, By Regional Outlook and Forecast, 2022 – 2028 –
A screen protector, also known as a screen protector, is usually made of laminated tempered glass (which looks very similar to the host device screen) or plastics including polyethylene terephthalate (PET) or thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). A plastic screen protector is cheaper, thinner, and more flexible than glass. A glass protector, on the other hand, looks more like the original screen of the host device and is more resistant to scratches.

The sight of a broken phone screen is always unpleasant. Screen protectors, which are thin plastic or glass coverings that can be applied to a smartphone screen, claim their products will protect the screen from scratches and cracks if dropped face down. . Additionally, the majority of cracked smartphone screens are caused by impact to the sides and edges. When the corners or edges of a smartphone hit the ground, the impact is concentrated in a small area and is more likely to break, whereas if it were to fall face down the impact would be spread across the whole screen.

Screen protectors help protect screens from scratches, which can compromise the internal structure of a screen and lead to major cracks. Many smartphone manufacturers and sellers offer an extended warranty that allows the phone to be exchanged or repaired if it is damaged. The downside is that the price of warranty programs often exceeds the cost of individual gadget repairs.

Users are more and more concerned about mobile devices due to the technological advancements of smartphones’ IPS-LCD screens, LED screens, Super AMOLED screens and unlimited screens, among others, because smartphone screens account for a large part of the overall cost. As a result, the high cost of luxury smartphones, combined with the risk of screen breakage, has driven smartphone screen protector sales in recent years.

Impact of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on economies around the world. Businesses have adjusted their budget proposals and preferences in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to survive the pandemic. Additionally, companies around the world are heavily funding their operations to keep them going. Local governments are offering enhanced financial packages to help businesses through this massive pandemic, with a particular focus on business. The COVID-19 pandemic has also boosted adoption across industry verticals as users seek to realize benefits including scale and cost savings. Despite the recent financial crisis, about half of subscription businesses are growing at the same rate as before, with no negative impact from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Market Growth Factors

Increase government subsidies for the production of smartphones

Government subsidies for manufacturing smartphones are increasing rapidly. The cost of cell phones is rising due to imports of smartphones, which is a barrier to their widespread use. Many governments are boosting opportunities to motivate domestic smartphone manufacturing. Many valuable cell phones with various features have recently come into the market. People are attracted to these attractive cell phones and buy them, but ensuring their safety is also a major responsibility. When the screens of these phones break for some reason, they cannot be recreated in such a way that they appear to be brand new.

Widespread use of smartphones

Due to increasing digitalization across the world, the use of smartphones is on the rise. With the growing population and the availability and affordability of smartphones in the market, smartphone adoption has skyrocketed. People buy cases, screen protectors and other accessories for their new smartphones to protect the device and the screen from severe physical damage. The market for smartphone screen protectors is expected to grow as smartphone users become more concerned with protecting their device screens from the stresses of everyday life. Screen protectors, as the name suggests, protect smartphone screens from scratches and other physical damage.

Market restraining factors

The existence of a halo effect in glass screen protectors

The halo effect refers to the edges of the screen protector that are not bound to the phone. When users place the glass or plastic screen protector on the phone, a halo effect is created. It decreases the visibility and sensitivity of the screen. Additionally, the adhesives applied to a screen protector under stress make it easy to burst and lose effectiveness. In addition, the pressure bonded part could crack the screen protector and possibly injure the person if they are not careful. Due to the use of adhesives, changing the tempered glass screen protector is a complex process. Plastic screen protectors also deteriorate in clarity over time, resulting in cloudiness and an unpleasant appearance.

Sales Channel Insights

Based on sales channel, the market is segmented into offline and online. The offline segment has acquired the highest revenue share in the smartphone screen protectors market in 2021. The majority of consumers still choose to buy things from offline stores rather than online portals in due to the physical validation of the products available in store. It also eliminates the need to spend shipping costs and provides the ability to interact with a sales representative for product details.

Material outlook

On the basis of material, the market is segmented into tempered glass, polyethylene terephthalate, and thermoplastic polyurethane. Thermoplastic polyurethane segment recorded a major revenue share in the smartphone screen protector market in 2021. It is resistant to damage, oil accumulation and grease, which is one of the advantages of using this type of screen protector. This flexibility also allows the screen protector to self-heal, which is important when using these screen protectors. These screen protectors are suitable for larger screens and on-screen fingerprints, which are increasingly common among newer smartphones due to the physico-chemical qualities of the material. Often they also offer full screen protection.

Regional outlook

Based on regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Latin America, Middle East & Africa. North America recorded a substantial revenue share in the smartphone screen protectors market in 2021. North America is expected to grow during the forecast period, owing to the increasing adoption of smartphones at high price with superior technologies. High quality items outnumber expensive cell phones in the market. With its superior damage resistance properties, the upsurge in tempered glass products is expected to drive the product market over the forecast period. Also, increasing consumer disposable income coupled with increased consumption of secure smartphone devices is expected to lead to increased growth over the forecast period.
