Flip Foldable Design Is The Leading Foldable Design

by Ville-Petteri Ukonaho | 5月 19, 2022

  • Flip foldable design is the leading foldable design.
  • A lack of global players is slowing the foldable market’s growth. Currently only Motorola and Samsung are selling foldables globally.
  • The price is still a huge factor limiting growth in foldable display smartphones.
  • Foldables will grow up to over 11% of the market by 2027.
  • Apple is estimated to bring one flip foldable model to the market in 2025 and that event will speed up the adoption.
  • Oppo and vivo will challenge Huawei and Honor in the fight of the China market. Xiaomi remains as the dark horse that can change the dynamics fast.
  • Lack of durable covering materials are the main reason why outwards folding design has not become popular.
  • Coating materials will need to be developed further for other types of designs, other than flip or inward fold, to be possible in larger scale.
