An eReader is an electronic instrument for reading digital publications such as e-books, magazines, and newspapers. eReaders have become popular due to their portability, cost-effectiveness, and convenience. Unlike traditional books, which require physical storage space and can be difficult to transport, eReaders allow readers to take multiple titles with them wherever they go easily. The rising use of digital content and interest in personalizing the reading experience has encouraged device usage. Furthermore, readers can purchase books conveniently online at a lower cost than physical copies. However, technical limitations of the eReader, including reduced battery capacity and storage and existing preference for physical books, are impeding the market growth. Market players are improving battery and display technologies and adding features such as backlighting for nighttime reading and adjustable fonts, making them even more user-friendly. In the coming years, expanding the social reading concept is expected to elevate the popularity of eReaders.
