Rugged Display Market Size, Trends & Growth (2021 - 2026)

Rugged displays are becoming more and more preferred in the military due to their high resistance to dust penetration and scratches due to environmental factors. Rugged displays are primarily known for their toughness, as they do not break easily or are too delicate to handle in the harsh environment of industrial, commercial or military industries. Industries such as manufacturers, the military, and others use rugged displays to monitor their operations and other content. Rugged displays are gaining popularity for their ability to deliver high screen brightness.

The global rugged display market was valued at $ 8.55 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach $ 13.17 billion by 2027, developing with a CAGR of 5.98% from 2020 to 2027.

The rapid uses of the rugged display in consumer electronics, military and defense applications have grown steadily over the last decade. Additionally, the increasing adoption of today's mil-aero projects, environments and missions around the world is leading to the use of a rugged display. This, in turn, is expected to increase global market demand for rugged display systems during the forecast period. In addition, technological advancements in all sectors, such as consumer electronics, industry, healthcare, and automotive, have paved the way for the growth of the global rugged display market. Therefore, most aerospace and defense, industrial and healthcare applications require display devices that are rugged and portable in nature. Therefore, the global rugged display market is expected to experience stable growth over the forecast period due to the increasing adoption of consumer devices for industrial applications.

Recent Developments:

  • Engineers at General Dynamics Itronix in Spokane Valley, Washington, have developed touch screen technology that can be viewed in direct sunlight with nearly the same clarity as an indoor desktop computer.
  • Panasonic India, a diversified technology company, announced the expansion of its rugged notebook offering in India with the launch of the Toughbook CF-SV8.
  • Getac Technology Corporation, a producer of rugged technology, recently launched the new fully rugged B360 notebook.
  • Getac, a leading provider of rugged mobile computing solutions, announced a distribution partnership with leader in rugged computing Third Wave Exim in India.


The emergence of the Coronavirus epidemic is causing closures in many countries and restrictions are restricting the supply chain for military electronics. Various defense forces award contracts for armored vehicles and other equipment to manufacturers, therefore, the recovery period from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the defense industry is expected to be faster than in other industries. Equipment production is now at a slower pace and is expected to accelerate from 2021, which would positively influence defense equipment manufacturing, including military rugged display. The total size of the market was calculated using primary and secondary sources. To begin the research process, a thorough secondary research was conducted using internal and external sources to obtain qualitative and quantitative information on the market.

Drivers and Restraints of Rugged Display Market:


Market growth is driven by developing technological change in display technology and the development of rugged display devices with high specifications, lower total cost of ownership (TCO) offered by improved products compared to consumer devices in harsh environments; and a growing demand for HMI and IoT in various industries. The increasing demand for Human Machine Interference (HMI) and Internet of Things (IoT) in many end-use industries is expected to drive the use of rugged displays. This, in turn, is expected to act as a global rugged display market driver during the outlook period. Around the world, a number of rugged display manufacturers are now focusing on expanding their production due to the increasing adoption of rugged displays in the industrial sector to enhance the customer experience.


On the other hand, the increase in the cost of raw materials that is applied for a robust screen and the high initial cost required for resistant screen devices are holding back the growth of this product market in the coming years. Currently, the application of consumer grade display devices in industrial applications is the main restraining factor for market growth.
