CE sales continue to rise with displays leading the pack

August 22, 2006

Total factory-to-dealer sales of consumer electronics will reach $140 billion in 2006, an 8 percent increase during 2005, according to recently released figures from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA).

Display technologies continue to be the frontrunner in the consumer electronics industry with revenues reaching $19 billion in 2005. That figure is expected to exceed $22 billion in 2006. According to association director of industry analysis Sean Wargo, shipment of digital sets will continue to accelerate as NTSC’s days are numbered.

CEA figures show DVD recorder prices have declined significantly. With the average price less than $100, shipments are expected to exceed 7 million units this year.
