Posted Jun 21, 2005

Research and Markets has announced the addition of a report entitled "DVD Players, Recorders, and the Next Generation" to their offering of market analysis.

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, according to Research and Markets. In 2004, Japanese DVD player shipments declined, while DVD recorder sales 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 like Ali, Cirrus Logic, ESS Technology, LSI Logic, MediaTek, NEC, Philips, Sigma Designs, STMicroelectronics, Sunplus, and Zoran.

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 (BOMs), and DVD recorder BOMs. Data from a Web survey regarding U.S. consumers' interest in DVD recorders is also presented.
