Digital Pen Market Growth & Trends

The digital pen is a writing application equipped with a battery and scanning solution that allows users to capture handwritten documents and drawing in digital form. Further, few digital pens are equipped with handheld scanners that are intended to use optical character recognition to turn printed text into editable text on computer applications.

The coronavirus pandemic has left an indelible mark on education systems all over the world. The paradigm shift to remote countries has accelerated access to devices and broadband internet across the country. Wacom, a Japanese device manufacturer, announced that its digital pen tablet is now fully compatible with Google OS and Chromebooks. During the pandemic, the two most recent trends in digital transformation in the education industry have been the expansion of distance education and the rise of educational technology innovations.

The integration of a digital pen and paper system is a new technology that must overcome these constraints. A slew of new technologies for clinical documentation has emerged. These include barcode systems, speech recognition systems, pen-based systems, as well as scanning technology. Existing technology for documentation and data entry has proven to be problematic over the years.

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, US National Library of Medicine, usability testing was conducted to evaluate the new technology, and a digital pen and paper system would be integrated for hospital nurses. The research study concluded that because existing technologies for documentation and data entry are problematic, most computer interactions require the use of a keyboard and mouse, which are unsuitable for bedside nursing. As a result, the demand for digital pens outnumbers the demand for traditional pens and paper in clinical documentation. Such factors have a positive impact on the ultimate growth of the handwriting digital pen market.
