While chargers are leading the global mobile phone accessories industry, protective cases and covers are following closely. Growing at a healthy CAGR, worldwide value of the mobile cases and covers market will surge over 1.7X in the next ten years.

Manufacturers to Shift Away from Plastics

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.
