BenQ ranked as world's No.2 supplier of projectors for 6th year

Taipei, March 6 (CNA) BenQ Corp. (??) of Taiwan said Friday that it remained the second largest projector supplier in the world in 2014, holding that spot for the sixth consecutive year in rankings compiled by market information advisory firm Futuresource Consulting. In 2014, BenQ, which specializes in digital light processing projectors, held a 12.9 percent share of the global projector market, second to U.S.-based Epson, the Futuresource data showed. The Taiwanese company, however, had the highest annual growth in projector market share worldwide at 1.50 percentage points, according the data. BenQ said the strong growth resulted largely from an annual 18.8 percent increase in shipments to Europe and 13.3 percent to China. Among the company's products, full-high definition projectors took a 25.9 percent share of the global market, propelling BenQ into the top spot as the world's biggest supplier in that category. BenQ said it was the largest projector supplier last year in 13 countries, including Germany, Austria and Indonesia, and was second in 12 countries that included China, India, Russia, Canada, Australia and Brazil. The company noted that an increasing number of individuals are now buying projectors, which is a shift away from the market trend of mostly corporations purchasing such products. Global projector sales rose by an annual 8 percent to 8.3 million units in 2014, according to Futuresource. (By Pan Chi-I and Frances Huang)
