In-Stat: 3D TV Set Market to Grow 500% in 2011

  • Video
SCOTTSDALE, AZ — After a slow start, the 3D TV set market is poised to grow dramatically in 2011 — by almost 500 percent, according to research firm In-Stat. 3D imaging has been used in an increasing number of Hollywood films over the last several years, and the consumer interest piqued by these films is driving the purchase of 3D TV sets.

“Over the next few years, a greater percentage of large-screen TV sets will ship with the 3D feature,” says Michelle Abraham, research director at In-Stat. “We expect 100 percent of all 40-inch and above DTV sets will eventually be 3D-enabled. This will not only cause shipments of 3D TV sets to increase, but will also grow the number of households worldwide with 3D TV sets. 3D content providers need not worry that consumers will be unable to view their content.”

Recent In-Stat research found the following:

  • Households with 3D TV sets will exceed 300 million in 2015.

  • In 2011, Europe will have the most 3D TV unit shipments, at just over 7 million.

  • By 2015, Asia-Pacific will have the largest share of 3D TV unit shipments, at 32 percent.
