DVD Writer and Media Market Keeps Shrinking

The DVD recordable technology registered sales (media, writers, recorders) of $2.6 billion in calendar-year 2013, down from $2.8 billion of revenue in 2012 according to a report from from Santa Clara Consulting Group.

This market peaked in 2008 and then started to decrease, and is expected to continue to shrink in the next years.

In calendar-year 2013, sales of DVD recorders were decreased by 6% down to 95 million units.

DVD video recorders had unit pricing more than eight times that of DVD writers, with a revenue of $75 million.

DVD writer sales contributed to a revenue of $2.1 billion.

Disc media sales (DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, and DVD-RAM) changed by -20%, down to to 2.1 billion units.

DVD-R was the most significant recordable DVD format in 2013, with 73% of DVD recordable disc sales, followed by DVD+R, 24%; DVD-RW, 2%; DVD+RW, 1%; and DVD-RAM, less than 1%, SCCG found.

DVD disc media is produced primarily in Asia, with Japan and Taiwan maintaining a large share of this business.

DVD disc media in Q4 represented revenues of $88 million. DVD R media (DVD+R and DVD-R) had sales of 451 million units, while the DVD RW segment (DVD+RW, DVD-RW, and DVD-RAM) had sales of 16 million units for the quarter.

Ritek, CMC, and Prodisc, all based in Taiwan, are acting as subcontractors for several international brands; Taiyo Yuden has manufacturing in Japan; and MCC/Verbatim continues to manufacture DVD discs, with production in Singapore. Moser Baer maintains a significant manufacturing presence for DVD recordable media in its India facilities. There are smaller regional players that have a minor influence on this market.

Entertainment levies in Europe continue to have an impact on country sales of disc media. High-levy countries such as France, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Spain,and Hungary have seen their official markets decline because of this trend. Countries with low levies, like Germany, the UK, Luxembourg, Andorra, Slovakia, Monaco, and San Marino, keep exporting to these countries to circumvent the levies.
