According to In-Stat research, the total number of 3D mobile devices will surpass 14.8 crore units in 2015. 3D displays are still evolving, while image sensors are benefiting from a TAM that is likely to triple by 2015, and the processing solutions are already on a roadmap that will support the increasing demands of 3D.

The implementation of 3D on mobile devices requires a much more advanced technical solution for both viewing 3D and capturing 3D. However, the tremendous size of the mobile market is driving the industry to overcome some of the current limitations.

"Despite the advances in the technology, adoption of 3D in mobile devices is still likely to be relatively slow due to limitations in content, the potential of eye strain and headaches from viewing 3D content by some, and the additional cost for 3D content and devices," says Jim McGregor, chief technology strategist. "Although 3D has been around for decades, the current technology is new and advanced. And, as with any new technology, adoption will increase as the ecosystem matures, costs come down, and the ability to capture 3D is combined with innovative mobile applications, which is likely to be in the 2013 to 2015 timeframe."

In-Stat research finds that nearly 30 per cent of all handheld game consoles will be 3D by 2015 and by 2014, 18 per cent of all tablets will be 3D. In- Stat research also forecasts that 3D mobile devices will increase demand for image sensors by 130 per cent. In 2012, notebook PCs will be the first 3D enabled mobile device to reach 10 lakh units. It further indicates that by 2014, 18 per cent of all tablets will be 3D.
