ELECTRONICS.CA PUBLICATIONS announces the availability of a comprehensive global report on DisplayPorts markets. Global shipment of DisplayPort-Enabled Devices is forecast to reach 1.43 billion units by 2018, driven by increasing consumer demand for high-performance displays in thinner form factors.
DisplayPort is an open, royalty-free, digital display interface established by VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association). The interface has emerged as the revolutionary, high performance, next generation display technology with the capability of offering high resolution and color depth on standard cables. Designed specifically for space-constrained connectivity applications like netbooks, ultra-thin notebooks and graphic cards, where connector space is small but high display performance is crucial, DisplayPort interface is witnessing significant growth. DisplayPort represents an apt replacement for existing outdated display interface technologies such as VGA, LVDS and DVI. All new personal computer chipsets, display controllers and GPUs, currently available in the market, are integrated with DisplayPorts.
Personal computing devices represent major DisplayPort-Enabled Devices. Demand is particularly strong for Embedded DisplayPort (eDP) for use in PC notebook panels. Embedded DisplayPorts and internal DisplayPorts (iDP) are gaining widespread acceptance among equipment manufacturers as a simplified, cost-effective alternate to legacy, bulkier solutions for the transmission of graphics and video data from the television and PC motherboards to plasma/LCD panels. Increasing global IT spend, both from enterprise and consumer segments, will continue to fuel adoption of computing devices, lending traction to market growth.
Rising demand for smartphones and tablets holds immense potential for DisplayPorts. Smartphones and tablets are increasingly integrating Mobility DisplayPort (MyDP) standard. Also known as SlimPort, the MyDP standard delivers uncompressed high-definition audio and video over a micro-USB connector in mobile devices such as smartphones, notebooks, and tablets. Apple continues to be the leader in terms of adoption of DisplayPorts in Apple iPhones. Growing popularity of tablets also offer significant growth opportunities for DisplayPorts, including external and internal DisplayPorts.
Though developed markets such as the United States and Europe have been the traditional revenue contributors to the DisplayPorts market, growth in the coming years will be primarily driven by developing markets of Asia-Pacific and Latin America. As stated by the new market research report on DisplayPorts, Asia-Pacific represents the fastest growing regional market worldwide. Steady economic growth, growing use of computing devices, rapid proliferation of smartphones and tablets, and increasing adoption of display devices, particularly in China and India, represent key growth drivers in the region.
