Taiwan's projector market grew slightly in fourth quarter: IDC

Taipei, Feb. 15 (CNA) Shipments of projectors to Taiwan grew by an annual 2.2 percent in the fourth quarter of last year, according to data compiled by research firm IDC. The number of units shipped at 21,898 also represented growth of 3 percent compared with the previous quarter. The slight increase was attributed to large volumes of shipments to the education sector, as well as replacements for models used by consumers at home before the Lunar New Year holiday, IDC said in a research report on Feb. 12. Epson remained the leading company in Taiwan's projector market, with a market share of 29.5 percent in the quarter from October to December, followed by NEC, Optoma, BenQ and Vivitek, the report said. It did not give market share figures for the other four companies in the top five. The IDC thinks the projector market in 2015 will have an outlook better than what most pundits expect, boosted by a continual replacement cycle in the education sector. The market segment relating to consumers' home use of projectors could also be boosted by more marketing events in the industry, IDC said. (By Jeffrey Wu)
