Insight Media Releases Report on Microprojectors with Solid-State Illumination


February 7th, 2012

Global Information Inc. would like to present a new market research report, "2012 Solid State Projector Report: Forecasts, Human Factors, Technology and Market Factors for Micro Projectors with Solid State Illumination" by Insight Media.

This report covers micro-projectors, which currently produce outputs in the 50  500 lumen range, expected to go up to a maximum of 2000 lumens by 2016. Microprojectors have been available since 2005 and are available around the world from multiple vendors.

"It is critical to understand how end-users have used these microprojectors," noted lead analyst Matthew Brennesholtz. "End users have found a very wide variety of applications for these small projectors and any individual will typically use his projector for multiple applications. This makes versatility the key to microprojector marketing."

"While the current market volume is modest, as light output grows, these solid state projectors will begin to become attractive for main stream projection applications," observed Insight Media president, Chris Chinnock. "This could drive sales to over 1 million units per year or more by 2016, depending on which forecast scenario (conservative, optimistic or expected) develops."

Part 1 of this report covers the technology, human factors and market drivers that are common for all market segments for mobile projectors with solid-state and hybrid illumination.

Part 2 of the report then takes a deep-dive into how this general information applies to microprojectors. The use-model for these systems was investigated to understand in detail what an end-user expects when he buys a microprojector. Part 2 of the report also provides optimistic, conservative and expected forecasts through 2016 for these microprojectors with solid-state illumination. These forecasts include both unit sales and revenue.
