Smartphone screen protector market is expected to hit around USD 87.8 Billion by 2030 from the worth of USD 50.7 Billion in 2022, and the market is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.1% from 2022 to 2030

The application of screen protectors has gained an accelerated pace with the augmented availability of technologically advanced smartphones among consumers. These protectors are smartphone accessories that offer safety or protection from cracks and scratches. Multiple screen protector products are available in the market such as tempered glass, thermoplastic polyurethane, and others, each offering distinct features in terms of protection.

These protectors are offered via separate retail channels along with the OEM manufacturers as smartphone accessories. Before the introduction of new product innovations, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) was among the first protectors as a thin and cost-effective self-adhesive film. They offer effective protection in terms of scratch resistance but with no protection against external impact. Thus, manufacturers sold PET sheets to the users which required these consumers to cut the sheets themselves to fit into their phones. Later, were sold as pre-cut protectors as per the focused smartphone models.

Additionally, the market players have continuously emphasized introducing product innovations to fulfill the consumer demand for better protection, top-grade quality, and cost-effective alternatives. The features offered by most screen protectors are protection against UV damage, glare reduction, antibacterial protection, dust, and fingerprint resistance along with improved device aesthetics. Thus, the favorable consumer demand for these protectors for smartphone protection propels the market statistics.

The tempered glass material contributed over 90.2% of the smartphone screen protector market share in 2021. This glass undergoes special chemical and thermal treatments for enhancing its strength capabilities, clear light transmittance, and reduced screen glare. Thus, high-quality tempered glasses are highly utilized for protection against top-level impact and scratches, further supporting the segment\'s growth during the forecast period. Additionally, thermoplastic polyurethane material is also anticipated to contribute substantial shares to the market growth in terms of value. This material is chemically enhanced for offering the properties such as oil, grease, and scratch resistance, enhanced elasticity, and increased toughness for absorption of non-extreme impacts. Thus, the adoption of such materials is anticipated to bolster the market demand in terms of enhanced screen protection from abrasive usage.

By Size

The size segment is trifurcated into 0.21mm, 0.33mm, 0.26mm. The 0.21mm is projected to contribute a substantial revenue share to the market growth during the forecast period. This size criterion is available as the default option of screen protectors available in the market. However, with growing requirements as per the mobile specifications, the 0.26 mm size is preferred in terms of touch sensitivity and high transparency. Additionally, there is a scope for introducing enhanced strength ranges of such protectors to enhance the screen resistance against any form of damage. Thus, the growing consumer demand for sturdy and thicker protector sizes is expected to support the growth of mentioned segments.

By Product Type

The product type segment is categorized into 2D, 2.5D, and 3D. The 2.5D segment is projected to contribute a substantial share to the market growth in terms of volume. The 2.5 D segment is referred to address the contoured glass which offers protection without the need for any kind of tempered glasses over screens. Thus, the segment growth is mainly attributed to the preference for the flawless and smooth surface texture of the protectors. Moreover, the 2D segment is also estimated to witness significant growth during the projected period. The 2D protectors are referred to the flat screen glasses with parallel structured frames with sharp edges. Thus, the augmented usage of straight-shaped smartphones like Apple products is expected to accelerate the segment demand in terms of value and volume during the forecast period.

By Price Range

The price range is segmented into below USD 175, USD 175 – 250, USD 250 – 450, USD 450 – 550, USD 550 – 700, and above USD 700. The USD 175 – 250 segment is anticipated to contribute a major revenue share to the smartphone screen protector market growth. The major factors such as the availability of mid-cost smartphones among consumers coupled with the increased production of high-quality screen protection glasses are expected to pave the path for augmented market statistics. Thus, the surged consumer awareness in terms of dust, damage, and physical impact resistance to smartphones accelerates the demand for such quality protectors within the stipulated price range. Additionally, the below USD 175 segment is also anticipated to witness augmented growth during the projected period.
