Westford, USA, Dec. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Over the past few years, portable projectors have become increasingly popular, both within the home and office environment. This is likely in part due to the trend of people wanting more efficient ways to entertain themselves; whether that means watching movies at home or presenting decks in meetings, a projector is an undeniably versatile tool. This growth of the global portable projector market is largely attributable to increased demand from commercial and institutional markets; in particular, sales of mobile projectors are forecast to grow at a faster rate than traditional stationary projectors (i.e., those used in offices). One of the key drivers behind this market growth is DLP projection technology; With this technology, projector sales have gradually shifted away from traditional phosphor screen projection technologies (such as CRT and LCoS) towards DLP units.

As such, manufacturers in the global portable projector market are investing heavily in R&D efforts to improve the performance and image quality of DLP units; this has resulted in improvements across a range of features/parameters, including: brightness (expressed as lumens), color accuracy, color gamut (the range of colors that can be displayed), and contrast ratio (the difference between the brightest and darkest areas on the screen.

China and Europe are the Key Consumers in Portable Projector Market

In terms of market segments, the study found that sales of small-sized (<1 kW) projectors (15.4 million units) were more dominant than those of large-sized (>1 kW) projectors (11.6 million units). The main drivers for the growth in sales of small-sized projectors were China and Europe, with their demand for home cinema equipment growing rapidly. In contrast, sales of large-sized projectors are expected to decline over the next few years as customers move to smaller models.

SkyQuest attributed the growth in sales of small-sized portable projector market to the increasing demand for home cinema equipment in China and Europe, which are traditionally high adopters of new technology. Meanwhile, declining demand for large-sized projectors is due to a number of factors, including stiff competition from other types of home entertainment equipment such as smart TVs and streaming boxes, as well as increased awareness about the dangers associated with using large projectors in public spaces.

China and Europe are the key consumers in portable projector market. One reason why China and Europe are the key markets for portable projectors is because these regions have a high demand for large screen entertainment. China is home to more than 1.4 billion people and Europe has a population of over 507 million people. These populations are increasingly looking for ways to entertain themselves outside of traditional forms of entertainment such as watching television or going to the movies. Portable projectors allow users to watch large screen entertainment anytime they want without having to go out to a movie theater or attend a live event.

With the increase in popularity of over-the-top (OTT) apps, such as Netflix and Hulu, there has been a corresponding increase in demand for portable projectors that are equipped with such apps in the global portable projector market. In fact, according to market research organization SkyQuest, the projected global sale of smart portable projectors with OTT apps will reach $8.1 billion by 2028.
