Mobile Cases and Covers Market

2019 Analysis and Review of Mobile Cases and Covers Market by Material - Plastic, Leather, Silicone, Rubber, and Biodegradable for 2019-2029

Manufacturers to Shift Away from Plastics

Influenced by their excellent barrier aspects, market players continue to prefer plastics such as polyurethane (PU) and polypropylene (PP) for manufacturing mobile cases and covers. Although plastics are abundant and cheap, their excessive adoption is adversely affecting the ecosystem, and, as such, is leading to strict regulations against their usage. In order to secure revenue to compete on a global landscape, market players are turning to alternatives such as leather and silicone, which are expected to witness adoption upsurge in the near term.

North America and Europe - Hub of Investment Opportunities

North America and Europe have been the early manufacturers of smartphones, with companies such as Apple leading the way. Moreover, the smartphone industry in both these regions has been showing positive trends in the recent past. Manufacturers are thus citing revenue-growth prospects in North America and Europe, which collectively hold around half of the value of the mobile cases and covers market. Looking ahead, market players are wagering their resources on East Asia, owing to cheap availability of raw materials and top-line growth of native smartphone brands - Samsung and Asus.

Biodegradable Materials to Redefine Growth Curve

These next-generation mobile cases and covers are entirely compostable and eco-friendly, as well as offer barrier properties akin to conventional materials.
