Samsung is starting production of a 46-inch transparent LCD panel, beginning this month. The transparent LCD panel features a contrast ratio of 4,500:1 with HD (1,366×768) resolution and 70 per cent color gamut.
The LCD panel is being produced for a variety of retail display applications such as product showcases, commercial freezer doors and platform doors of subway stations in North America, Europe and Asia. It will be used in other applications including e-boards, information windows, medical equipment, e-signage and mobile devices, says Samsung.
According to market research firm Display Bank, the transparent display market is expected to grow from $0.9 billion in 2015 to $87 billion in 2025.
