As the data comes in on 3D TV sales, market researcher DisplaySearch projected this week that 2.5 million units will be sold worldwide in 2010, more than double the forecast issued in January. As the market grows even further, 27 million units are expected to be sold in 2013.
The numbers were released as part of DisplaySearch's latest Quarterly TV Design and Features Report.
In a statement, Paul Gray, Director of TV Electronics Research for DisplaySearch, explained that “in 2009, we saw the first 3D-capable TVs, with the market greatly accelerating at CES 2010. Now we are seeing the hype turning into real products.”
