HDMI device shipments to rise 17% annually
through 2015, estimates In-Stat
In-Stat research has forecasted that the number of HDMI-enabled
device shipments will surpass 1 billion in 2014, while DVI-enabled
shipments will decline by 9.4% annually through 2015.HDMI
has become the interface solution of choice throughout the
consumer electronic (CE) device market, particularly for
wired CE devices. HDMI is said to found in every digital
television (DTV) shipping in 2011 and in nearly every HD
set top box. As a result of this current and forecasted
level of penetration, future growth will come from other
markets, such as mobile phones and consumer desktop and
mobile PCs, say In-Stat.
"HDMI has become the universal interface for nearly
all advanced CE devices, while DVI, although still significant
in numbers, will have serious competition from technologies
like DisplayPort in PCs and PC monitors," says Brian
O'Rourke, Research Director. "There is no roadmap for
DVI to upgrade and AMD has announced that it will end DVI
support in its chips by 2015, while HDMI adoption continues
across a broad number of devices and markets."
Some of the findings include:
HDMI device shipments will increase by 17% annually through
DVI device shipments will increase through 2011 before starting
a slow decline.
HDMI will reach 65% penetration in the digital camcorder
market in 2015.
DVI will increasingly be pressured by DisplayPort in the
corporate PC market.
