TECHx: Researchers predict that the global display market will hit a whopping figure of $206.29 billion by 2025. In light of this, what biggest technology trends you foresee in the display industry in the coming years?
Carol: When it comes to the future of the workplace, there are a number of things that will influence how we work. When it comes to technology, the display is one of the most crucial. The way we view and engage in our daily chores is influenced by the visual aspect of our computer setup. It improves communication, enables us to visualize our effort, and lets us see the outcomes. Trends such as huge display formats, slim borders, borderless, curved, 4k resolutions, and touch screens have already appeared.
- Display panels will incorporate trends like Visual/Augmented Reality in the coming years, allowing users to view, move around, and interact with 3D displays.
- 8K displays, which will allow larger screens without pixelation.
- Transparent displays / flexible / foldable: ideal for meeting and conference rooms.
- Eye Tracking: Like mobile phones, displays will have an eye-tracking feature for security.
- Artificial Intelligence will be incorporated into display screens, which will allow consumers to automatically be informed on suggestions.
TECHx: Are there any new collaborations or product launches in the pipeline for AOC?
Carol: We’re enhancing our partnerships with major corporations such as Porsche Design, Bowers and Wilkins Audi, Xbox, Blizzard, and Riot Games, to mention a few. Professional interactive large displays & signage in AOC will be launching within this market in the coming future.
TECHx: Could you have an overview of AOC’s Middle East expansion plans for our readers?
Carol: Offering a range that will fulfill all requirements from B2B clients, gamers, schools, and corporates will be our primary focus in expanding breadth and categories for our customers. We’ll use this to expand our own stocking and warehousing hub in the Middle East. This will enable us to work on SKD projects throughout the Middle East.
