The scientometric analysis performed from global output characteristics, institutional, core journals, continental, countries/territories and topical aspects. International publications' features identified that Liquid crystal research has improved stage and colossal participation and collaboration. The vast research papers were published in 2018. This is the first study to evaluate global literature output trends in Liquid crystals, which might provide a potential guide for future research. These indicators lead Liquid crystals to formulate policy, setting priorities, and undertake strategic planning, monitoring, and evaluation.
