|2012 Solid State Projector Report: Forecasts, Human Factors, Technology and Market Factors for Micro Projectors with Solid State Illumination|
|Published: January 31, 2012||Content info: 240 Pages||
Microprojectors were first introduced commercially in 2005 with 15 lumen output and since then have been introduced by multiple additional vendors. For purposes of this report, a microprojector is small enough to fit in a laptop bag but uses enough power to require an AC power connection. The unit may or may not have an internal media player. Sales to date have been modest but respectable and significant growth in this market is expected in the future. Component suppliers, projection optical module makers, projector system makers and others need to understand the consumer and business needs in this market in order to provide products that sell in significant quantities. This report is designed to address this need.
Careful evaluation of the technology, markets and end-user needs are required to create forecasts that are realistic. This sober and independent evaluation is required to understand and plan for developments in the microprojector market, as well as the market for pico/micro projectors in general.
The pico/micro projector market can be broken into seven market segments, as shown in the Table below. This report addresses two segments: Consumer Microprojectors and Presentation Microprojectors. Separate reports discuss the other segments, with the Smart Phone Handset, Digital Camera and Stand-alone Picoprojector reports already available. Insight Media expects to add a report on Projectors with Hybrid Illumination to this series.
Part 1 of this report covers the technology, human factors and market drivers that are common for all seven market segments. This common section has been updated and expanded from the common section used in Smart Phone Handset, Digital Camera and Stand-alone Picoprojector reports, to include new information that became available in 2011.
Part 2 of the report then takes a deep-dive into how this general information applies to microprojectors. Due to the strong crossover between consumer and business oriented microprojectors, this report covers both of these segments. Part 2 also provides optimistic, conservative and expected sales forecasts through 2016 for microprojectors for both consumer and business applications. These forecasts involve unit sales, revenue to the microprojector module manufacturers and overall industry revenue from retail sales.
Some key findings of this report include:
Insight Media used a wide variety of sources of information for this report, including:
Note: the forecasts in Section 8 are exclusively Insight Media's and do not necessarily agree with forecasts from other research firms.
Forecasts were made by evaluating historical trends in mainstream, micro and pico projectors and comparing these trends with end-user requirements and the technology required to meet these requirements.
Insight Media forecasts show business and home markets separately. Because of the strong crossover between home and business markets, sales of a given model of microprojector would commonly be split between these two market segments.
This report does not sub-divide the forecast by technology. The market is currently nearly 100% DLP. Penetration of CS-LCoS into the market is modest but expected to increase in the future.
