Verbatim Increases Lead in Recordable and Rewritable CD and DVD Media Markets

Verbatim Increases Lead in Recordable and Rewritable CD and DVD Media Markets

Verbatim announced that the Q1 2005 report from the Santa Clara Consulting Group (SCCG) shows the optical media developer and marketer has continued to increase its global market share in the rapidly expanding CD and DVD media arena. With worldwide demand for DVD recordable media increasing by 126% annually and recordable CD demand relatively stable, SCCG reported that Verbatim and its parent company, Mitsubishi Kagaku Media, reached number one position worldwide in CD-R, CD-RW, DVD-R, and DVD-RW volume.

The market for recordable CD and DVD media is being driven by the growing demand for DVD burners that write to both CD and DVD media. SCCG forecasts the worldwide installed base of DVD writers will grow from less than 100 million to more than 180 million by the end of 2005. With CDs playing a vital role for recording personal music, photos and home videos, analysts expect the market for CD media to be fairly stable in the coming years. However, with the prices of DVD recorders declining and the demand for digital cameras, camcorders and capture/playback devices almost doubling every year, SCCG analysts see worldwide shipments of recordable DVD media increasing from 1.4 billion in 2004 to more than 3.1 billion units in 2005.
