DVD market continues to grow as recording units gain share


Research and Markets released an interesting report about the DVD market, covering DVD players, recorders and next generation devices.

DVD recorders are beginning to drive the market for non-PC DVD hardware, a trend that keeps the overall global DVD hardware market on the rise. The DVD recorder market (not including units connected to PCs) doubled in size in 2004 and will grow by 87% in 2005. "In 2004, Japan DVD player shipments declined, while DVD recorders grew by over 100%."

The report, DVD Players, Recorders, and the Next Generation, provides forecasts for unit shipments, average selling prices, and revenues by region for DVD playback and recording devices that connect to TV sets, not PCs. It includes a look at emerging DVD player features, DVD recorder combinations, and new DVD technologies including those from silicon providers.

The report contains 5-year forecasts for worldwide DVD players by region, DVD recorders by region, DVD players by type, DVD recorders with hard drives, DVD recorders with DTV tuners, next-generation DVD players and recorders, DVD player bill of materials and DVD recorder BOMs. Data from a web-survey regarding US consumers interest in DVD recorders is also presented.

A preview of the DVD silicon providers:

-- ALi
-- Cirrus Logic
-- ESS Technology
-- LSI Logic
-- MediaTek
-- NEC
-- Philips
-- Sigma Designs
-- STMicroelectronics
-- Sunplus
-- Zoran
-- Others

The report also found that:

-- Worldwide DVD recorder unit shipments will grow from 9.4 million in 2004 to 67.7 million in 2009.
-- Digital TV tuners will be added to DVD recorders in increasing numbers in Japan, Europe, and North America. The FCC DTV tuner mandate willrequire a DTV tuner in each DVD recorder shipped in the US after July 1, 2007.
-- Three manufacturers are shipping next-generation Blu-ray recorders in Japan, while the first HD-DVD players will be available in the second half of 2005 along with about 90 movie titles. In-Stat expects shipments of next-generation blue laser recorders and players will reach 4 million in 2008, not including video game consoles.
