Projector Shipments Seen Topping 11 Million
Worldwide shipments of front projectors are expected to reach 11.3 million this year, a 20 percent increase over 2011. That's according to a forecast released this week by Pacific Media Associates (PMA).
As part of the forecast, LED projectors are seen growing 60 percent this year, thanks largely to embedded pico projectors in smartphones and cameras.
"Ultra-short-throw projectors and medium-throw projectors will remain strong segments in the projector industry, and are expected to show better than 25%+ combined annual growth though the forecast period," Dr. William Coggshall, President of Pacific Media Associates, said as part of the announcement.
