The use of digital pens in the animation industry has increased over the years and will continue to grow unhindered in the coming years. Companies are focusing on launching digital pens for students and professionals in the field of creative arts. For instance, Wacom Cintiq 16 was launched in January 2019 to assist students in digital sketching, illustration, and drawing. The product is embedded with Wacom’s Pro Pen 2 technology. It has 8,192 levels of pressure sensitivity and tilt, which makes it precise and accurate. Another important technology is built-in Electro-Magnetic Resonance (EMR), which eliminates the need for battery and recharge. Such innovations are estimated to boost product penetration and market growth in the forecast period.


The product is gaining significant traction across the globe owing to the rising adoption of e-learning sites and apps among students of all ages. E-educators have been striving to provide education through the online medium, thereby offering more convenience to the students as compared to the conventional offline education medium.


The conventional blackboard method has been proven to be inefficient as it provides low visibility of the written content. Therefore, the utilization of a digital pen as an alternative to chalks results in providing clarity of the content to the viewers. The points scribbled by these products are quickly turned from analog to digital mode, which is easier to read on the screen and quicker than most of the other transformation methods.


Implementation of supportive government policies on digitalization in emerging economies, including China and India, is expected to push the healthcare and BFSI sectors to use the digital pen as a tool for ensuring error-proof database collection. For instance, banking institutions are likely to rely on these objects as they convert manual data into digital formats, which makes it easier to keep the personal information and financial transactions of their customers. Additionally, the digital pen can be used to edit the stored data easily as and when required.
