Market Overview

The Privacy Filters Market was valued at USD 430.32 million in 2020 and expected to reach USD 1134.77 million by 2026 and grow at a CAGR of 17.54% over the forecast period (2021-2026). With the growing use and application of smart connected devices, such as laptops, desktops, smartphones, and tablets in the corporates and businesses, the number of security risks is also increasing. One such threat is visual hacking, which is one of the most prevalent and conventional hacking methods. It enables snooping on sensitive company information whenever employees venture out of their corporate work setting.

  • As more and more businesses are moving toward digitalization, the vitality of data security increases. In certain scenarios, business representatives or IT professionals, who work on or have access to sensitive data of the organization or client, are forced to travel or access the data in public places, which further increases the chance of sensitive data exposure. About 75% of the business travelers display company information on screen while they are on a train or an airport. Owing to such developments, organizations are significantly investing in data security solutions.
  • Privacy filters offer privacy and anti-glare filter, which further helps prevent conditions, such as chronic headaches and presbyopia that causes eyes to become weak. Combating these potential side effects often means that people are less likely to become fatigued when working at a computer, which can make a significant difference to their long-term health.
  • Also, various government regulations regarding data privacy are driving enterprises to adopt such filters. To comply with such data privacy regulations, vendors are increasingly developing and marketing their privacy filter solutions to enterprises that are investing in GDPR compliance. For example, 3M introduced a new COMPLY attachment system, which is designed to enhance visual privacy and support GDPR compliance; the company launched the filter in the United Kingdom and other parts of Europe.
  • In recent years, the demand for privacy filters is gaining traction, due to employee propensity toward health benefits offered by such filters. According to a report by Acuvue, office workers spend about 6.5 hours a day sitting in front of their computer; blue light is one of the major contributors to eye damage due to long exposures to the computer screen. Vendors in the market are enhancing their offerings in terms of eye protection as well. For example, the 3M high clarity privacy filter reduces blue-light transmissions from screen displays by as much as 35%. The filter also gives screens an extra layer of protection against everyday dust and scratches.
  • With the outbreak of COVID-19, a dominant share of the workforce is working from home, which has become a major hassle in terms of data security for enterprises across the world. Under the circumstances, various enterprises are planning to extend work from home periods and even adopting permanent structure over the coming years. Extended work from home situation might result in decreased demand for privacy filters.
