UHDTV market forecast

The recent In-Stat research "The Market Opportunity for Ultra-High Definition Video" covers the availability of ultra-high definition (7680 x 4320 and 3840 x 2160 pixels) TV units and the availability of ultra-high definition services around the world. In-Stat analysts found the following:
  • The rising popularity of high resolution digital cinema will expose consumers to high resolution content. Then, early UHDTVs will be made available to provide a digital cinema high resolution viewing experience in the home. Ultimately, broadcasters will start offering UHD content to an addressable market of UHDTVs between 2017 and 2022.

  • In-Stat expects the total installed base of UHDTVs Europe to approach 5% household penetration until 2021, and increase to over 28.2% penetration by 2025.

  • In Asia-Pacific, Japan will be among the early adopter countries.
