3D TV To Make A Come Back?

By |


ID-100168750.jpgDespite most of the big names in television all but abandoning their hopes that 3D would be a driving force behind people's television purchases, there appears to be some good news on the horizon for stereoscopic fans. A new report by Research and Markets claims the global flat panel market will increase 15.4 percent from 2013-2018. Some of this resurgence seems to be attributed to the rise of 4K technology, which is able to display more convincing and less headache-inducing 3D effects than 1080p was able to. But mainly the rise is attributed to 3D gaming, which has increased in popularity so much that manufacturers have taken notice and begun manufacturing and upgrading 3D TVs to keep up with the trend.

From Business Wire

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global 3D Flat Panel TV Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.

The analysts forecast the Global 3D Flat Panel TV market to grow at a CAGR of 15.4 percent over the period 2013-2018. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increase in 3D content broadcasts. The Global 3D Flat Panel TV market has also been witnessing the emergence of 4K resolution technology. However, the health risk associated with 3D technology could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

Key vendors dominating this space are LG Electronics Inc., Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., and Sony Corp.

Other vendors mentioned in the report are Panasonic Corp., Koninklijke Philips N.V., Sharp Corp., and Toshiba Corp.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: The increasing popularity of 3D gaming among consumers is driving the Global 3D Flat Panel TV market. 3D gaming is an immersive experience that provides a real world experience to its users. Several videogame makers such as Sony Computer Entertainment Inc., Nintendo Co. Ltd., Electronic Arts Inc., Capcom Co. Ltd., Take-Two Interactive Software Inc., and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment Inc. are investing heavily in making 3D video games. This increasing popularity of 3D games has encouraged the vendors to manufacture and upgrade 3D TVs to support 3D gaming.

According to the report, 3D technology is being used in the Entertainment sector such as 3D films, video games, gaming consoles, and 3D TVs. Blockbuster movies like Avatar not only increased the public awareness of 3D media but also increased the popularity of 3D films across the world.
