Worldwide, 3-D TV set market to grow 500 percent in 2011, says In-Stat
The 3-D TV set market is poised to grow this year by nearly 500 percent, according to In-Stat.
According to Michelle Abraham, ABI research director, a greater percentage of large-screen TV sets will ship with 3-D as a feature. “We expect 100 percent of all 40in and above DTV sets will eventually be 3-D-enabled,” she said. “This will not only cause shipments of 3-D TV sets to increase, but will also grow the number of households worldwide with 3-D TV sets”
A recent report from In-Stat, “3D Enabled TV Sets on the Rise Worldwide,” found:
- Households with 3-D TV sets will surpass 300 million worldwide in 2015.
- In 2011, Europe will have the greatest number of 3-D TV unit shipments at more than 7 million.
- By 2015, Asia/Pacific will have the largest share of 3-D TV unit shipments at 32 percent.
