NEW YORK, Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Smart Mirror Markets - 2013
The objective of this report identifies and quantifies the opportunities, challenges, and prospects for growth of smart mirrors. Specifically, it analyzes the capabilities of current and likely future smart mirror technologies and how these technologies may be deployed in both automotive and non-automotive applications.
Smart technologies covered in the report include the following:• Self-dimming technology, which is further broken out into electrochromic and "other" self-dimming technologies in the automotive sector. Note that the "other" category includes such technologies as photochromic systems, thermochromic systems, and suspended particle devices. Also note that, because of the early stage of the market and because of the minimal penetration of self-dimming into non-automotive applications for smart mirrors, this category is not further broken out in the household/consumer, healthcare/medical, or advertising/marketing forecasts.• Self-cleaning technologies.• Self-repairing technologies.• Embedded electronics, which is further broken out (in the automotive sector forecasts only) into sensors, displays, cameras, and touch technology. Note that, because of the early stage of the market for non-automotive smart mirror applications, this category is not further broken out in the household/consumer, healthcare/medical, or advertising/marketing forecasts.In addition, the analysis is carried out based on the four marketing factors shown above and in the following four markets:• Automotive applications for smart mirrors;• Household and/or consumer applications for smart mirrors;• Healthcare and medical-related applications for smart mirrors, both in professional settings and in home healthcare settings; and• Retail and advertising applications for smart mirrors.As usual, we provide eight-year forecasts for the various smart technologies for smart mirrors in these sectors, and the projections are developed in both volume and value terms.In these forecasts, and in the report in general, we are principally concerned with the smart mirrors themselves and the relevant smart technologies (coatings, electronic systems, etc.) associated with them. Packaging and integration costs are not a focus of this report. In addition, all of the forecasts were developed in the context of important and relevant developments in the various sectors covered.Although the primary goal of this report is to forecast the market for smart mirrors, we also examine how the new developments will influence the established players in smart mirror business, and how these firms are strategizing for these new opportunities. In addition, we review selected smaller firms that may become key players in the emerging multifunctional smart mirror field.This report is international in scope.TABLE OF CONTENTS EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:OPPORTUNITIES FOR SMART MIRRORSE.1 The Future of Automotive MirrorsE.2 Opportunities for an Emerging Smart Mirror Industry: Digital MirrorsE.3 Firms to Watch in the Smart Mirror SpaceE.4 Forecasting Methodology and Summary of Eight-Year Market ForecastsE.4.1 Objective and Scope of the ReportE.4.2 Forecasting MethodologyE.4.3 Data Sources UsedE.4.4 Alternative ScenariosE.4.5 Forecast Summary CHAPTER ONE: TECHNOLOGIES FOR SMART MIRRORS1.1 Smart Materials for Smart Mirrors1.1.1 Current and Future Use of Electrochromic Technology for Smart Mirrors1.1.2 Other Self-Dimming Technology for Smart Mirrors1.1.3 Self-Cleaning Mirrors1.1.4 Self-Repairing Mirrors1.2 Embedded Electronic Devices in Smart Mirrors1.2.1 Sensors1.2.2 Displays1.2.3 Cameras1.2.4 Touch Sensors in Smart Mirrors1.3 Key Points Made in this Chapter CHAPTER TWO: AUTOMOTIVE MARKETS AND MARKET FORECASTS FOR SMART MIRRORS2.1 The Evolution of Smart Auto Mirrors2.1.1 Improving Safety with Smart Auto Mirrors2.1.2 Improving Comfort with Smart Auto Mirrors2.1.3 Enhancing Automobile Design and Style with Smart Mirrors2.2 Future Products and Likely Acceptance2.3 Eight-Year Market Forecast of Smart Mirrors in Automotive Applications CHAPTER THREE: SMART MIRRORS IN CONSUMER AND HOUSEHOLD APPLICATIONS3.1 Mirrors as Information Devices3.1.1 Bathroom and Bedroom Applications for Smart Mirrors3.1.2 Other Consumer Applications for Smart Mirrors3.2 Eight-Year Market Forecast of Smart Mirrors in Consumer and Household Applications3.2.1 Analysis of the Addressable Market for Smart Mirrors in Consumer and Household Applications3.2.2 Forecasts for Smart Mirror Technologies in Consumer and Household Applications CHAPTER FOUR: HEALTHCARE AND MEDICAL APPLICATIONS FOR SMART MIRRORS4.1 Products and Applications for Smart Mirrors in Healthcare and Medical-Related Markets4.1.1 Professional Products4.1.2 Personal Healthcare Products4.2 Eight-Year Market Forecast of Smart Mirrors in Medical/Healthcare Applications4.2.1 Analysis of the Addressable Market for Smart Mirror Technologies in Medical/Healthcare Applications4.2.2 Forecasts for Smart Mirror Technologies in Medical/Healthcare Applications CHAPTER FIVE: RETAIL AND ADVERTISING APPLICATIONS FOR SMART MIRRORS5.1 Smart Mirrors for in Retail and Advertising5.1.1 Clothing Stores as a Target Market for Smart Mirrors5.1.2 Smart Mirrors for Advertising in Businesses and Public Spaces5.2 Eight-Year Market Forecast of Smart Mirrors in Retail and Advertising Applications5.2.1 Analysis of the Addressable Market for Smart Mirrors in Retail and Advertising Applications5.2.2 Forecasts for Smart Mirror Technologies in Retail and Advertising SettingsAcronyms and AbbreviationsAbout the Author LIST OF EXHIBITSExhibit E-1: Drivers for Growth of Smart MirrorsExhibit E-2: Summary of the Smart Mirror Technologies Market 2013-2020 ($ Millions)Exhibit 1-1: Selected R &D Trends and Institutions in Self-Cleaning GlassExhibit 1-2: Selected Suppliers of Self-Cleaning CoatingsExhibit 2-1: Comparison of Smart Mirrors from Gentex and Magna MirrorsExhibit 2-2: Analysis of the Market for Smart Mirror Technologies in Automotive ApplicationsExhibit 2-3: Automotive Interior Rear-View Smart Mirrors by Technology 2013-2020Exhibit 2-4: Automotive Exterior/Wing Smart Mirrors by Technology 2013-2020Exhibit 2-5: Summary of the Market Value of Automotive Smart Mirror Technologies 2013-2020Exhibit 3-1: Selected Examples of Smart Mirrors Concepts for the HomeExhibit 3-2: Analysis of the Addressable Market for Smart Mirror Technologies in Consumer Goods 2013-2020Exhibit 3-3: Smart Mirror Technologies in Consumer Goods 2013-2020Exhibit 4-1: Selected Smart Mirror Concepts Targeted for Healthcare and Medical ApplicationsExhibit 4-2: Selected Smart Mirror Concepts Targeted for Home Healthcare ApplicationsExhibit 4-3: Analysis of the Addressable Market for Smart Mirror Technologies in Healthcare and Medical Applications 2013-2020Exhibit 4-4: Smart Mirror Technologies in Healthcare and Medical Applications 2013-2020Exhibit 5-1: Analysis of the Addressable Market for Smart Mirror Technologies in Retail and Advertising 2013-2020Exhibit 5-2: Smart Mirror Technologies in Retail and Advertising Applications 2013-2020 To order this report: Furniture_and_Decoration Industry: Smart Mirror Markets - 2013 Contact Clare: firstname.lastname@example.orgUS:(339) 368 6001Intl:+1 339 368 6001 SOURCE Reportlinker
