Region :Global | Report ID: FBI106219 | Status : Ongoing



The market for digital notepads is expected to exhibit significant growth opportunities during the forecast period 2021-2028.

The digital notepad is an electronic writing device that assists users in sketching or writing on the notepad's screen and help in storing the written documents. Such pads are highly responsive and accurate in pen strokes and drawing style and are a perfect creative tool for sketch artists. Therefore, increasing consumer leisure towards drawing and sketching is likely to drive the demand for such products.

Nowadays, companies are offering digital display technology-based notepads to offer innovative writing solutions to people. For instance, The reMarkable has launched the new generation e-ink tablet 'the remarkable 2' on its official website in 2020. The second-generation model supports 33 languages and provides the user with an eye-friendly reading experience.

Advancement in digital display technologies significantly favors the consumer demand for such innovative notepads, thereby driving the market growth. Additionally, rising working professionals' demand for touch-screen-based notepads for billing, graphic design, and communication-related tasks will likely uplift product revenues worldwide.

Moreover, rising consumer demand for WiFi and built-in storage technology-based devices supports the demand for such products. Paper production is mainly done by wood pulp obtained from cutting trees and bamboo, which leads to deteriorating environmental impacts such as deforestation and global warming. The growing awareness regarding reducing wood-based paper usage is likely to favor the consumer demand for digital notepads.

Nowadays, to avoid coronavirus infection, students prefer taking school classes remotely by using digital notepads. This will accelerate the students' demand for such items, thereby driving market growth.
