Dual-screen laptop market to be worth over US$500 million more by 2027
Dual-screen laptops of various types, sizes and use-cases are getting more popular over time, as their fans appreciate their refreshingly sophisticated form-factors and extra real estate. Their novelty might give way to staying power over the next ~4 years, according to market research group Technavio.
It now estimates that the market for dual-screen machines grew by 3.67% year-on-year (YoY) in 2023, in accordance with a similar compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.79% until 2027. Those rates might be as good as might be expected given the prevailing economic conditions, and are estimated to drive said market's value up by US$535.26 million by 2027.
That growth might be driven by a preference for larger (15 inches or greater) laptops and by specific regions such as APAC, projected to account for 29% of shipments until 2027. Then again, Technavio believes that the dual-screen PC's reputation as a battery hog might hold it back a bit.
Nevertheless, their potential advantages are especially valued among gamers in the new report, although such laptops are also increasingly pitched at creators and office workers. Accordingly, Lenovo, HP and Asus are named among the most prominent individual OEMs in this market at present.
