Strategy Analytics Predicts First Decline in DVD Player Revenues
Posted Jun 21, 2005 Print Version     Page 1of 1
  

Global DVD player revenues will fall for the first time ever this year, according to research from the Strategy Analytics Connected Home service. Retail revenues in 2005 will fall by 1 percent to $19.8 billion, after peaking at $20.1 billion in 2004. Higher-value DVD recorders are beginning to replace players, but this trend will not prevent a continued fall in overall revenues.

Worldwide sales of DVD recorders rose to 8.9 million units in 2004, generating $4.8 billion in retail revenues. DVD recorder sales will continue to grow rapidly, overtaking play-only devices in 2008 and reaching annual sales of 90.9 million units in 2010, according to Strategy Analytics. The U.S. market is trailing both Europe and Japan in adoption of DVD recorders, in part reflecting faster U.S. adoption of set-top box DVRs.

DVD recorders that are integrated with a hard disk drive dominate the Japanese market, and this trend is expected to spread to other regions. This feature enables timeshifting as well as television program archiving in one device.

Further information on this report, "DVD Players and Recorders: Global Market Forecast," is available at www.strategyanalytics.com/press/PR00182.htm.
