Continued price growth for plastic materials will likely contribute to higher projection screen prices.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 16, 2014
Projection screens have a buyer power score of 4.1 out of 5, reflecting favorable market conditions for buyers. According to IBISWorld procurement analyst Aileen Weiss, “Demand for screens is primarily tied to a growing number of businesses, government funding in education and private investment in computers.” Though moderate switching costs and a medium total cost of ownership lower buyer negotiation power, a low market share concentration, slow and stable price growth and little product specialization benefit buyers. Thanks to these factors, buyer negotiation power is high. A low market share concentration benefits buyers. Though there are few manufacturers, buyers have a large selection of wholesalers and distributors to choose from. The resulting high competition among suppliers provides buyers with more power to pit vendors against one another. The standardization of most projection screens from supplier to supplier also helps drive competition, and products across most brands are comparable. For this reason, suppliers are forced to compete based on price and breadth of service to gain market share, which boosts buyer power.
Alternatively, highly customized screens are only provided by manufacturers, which drastically reduces supplier options and, therefore, buyer power for buyers that require such screens. Switching costs for customized screens are also higher because such screens are most expensive and more difficult to source, though buyers must consider installation fees for any type of screen. “In addition, moderate total costs of ownership negatively impact buyer power if the buyer does not store or maintain the screen properly,” says Weiss. Though a moderate degree of substitutes in the form of screen paint and flat-screen televisions increase competition slightly, neither of these options offer the exact capabilities of projection screens.
Prices have risen very slightly due to growing demand in recent years; however, price volatility has remained low despite a moderate degree of supply chain risk, ultimately benefiting buyers. Low, steady future prices will allow buyers to thoroughly evaluate products and suppliers to find the best deal, with little risk of price spikes. The top four vendors in the market are Dai Nippon Printing, Seiko Epson, Optoma Technology and Draper.
