Foldable Phone Market Size Had Surpassed US$ 6.8 Bn in 2021

NEWARK, Del., Nov. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global foldable phone market was worth US$ 6.8 Bn as of the year 2021 and is expected to witness a dynamic CAGR of 25.2% between 2021 and 2031.

The foldable phone, as the name suggests, folds inward and/or outward. On transmission of power through OLED’s and e-paper’s organic compounds, these phones do radiate light of their own. This, in turn, renders foldable phones more flexible and thinner.

Certain devices do fold out on a vertical plane for forming a wider display (like a tablet), but remain usable in a folded, smaller state. This display is capable of either rolling around or getting folded on the smartphone’s back. The phone could even be used as a booklet-like structure where a wider, folded display is placed on the inner surface. Moreover, the display on the ‘cover’ lets users make use of the smartphone without the need to open it.
