High-end projectors offering at least 4,000 lumens of brightness were the best sellers across the global projector market, according to new research.
Figures from projector market analyst PMA research have revealed that the high-end and digital cinema category outsold other types of projector during the first six months of this year.
Shipments worth a total of over £640 million were made, which represented a six per cent sales expansion by volume when compared to the first half of 2012. PMA told Channel Web: “In the market for super-bright projectors, excluding d-cinema, manufacturers continued to expand the breadth and depth of their product lines to meet growing demand in developing countries and the accelerating shift to higher-resolution projectors in advanced economies.”
The research also showed that digital cinema projectors alone sold more than 100,000 units worldwide, with developing countries seen to be spending more on the public-display projectors and education devices as the global economy stabilises.
PMA confirmed: “Despite the uneven pace of economic recovery in advanced economies, sales of high-end projectors managed to stay relatively unchanged compared with the first half of last year.”
