GIA announces the launch of a comprehensive primary research program studying the global market for “DisplayPorts”. The soon to be released report identifies growing popularity of multiple external displays for multitasking applications, strong consumer demand for electronic equipment with integrated DisplayPorts, and growing demand for dual-mode DisplayPorts with support for DVI and HDMI signals, as key market driving forces.

DisplayPorts: A Global Multi-Client Research Initiative

Follow us on LinkedIn – GIA invites senior industry executives, domain experts, technologists and market strategists to participate in a comprehensive global research initiative studying the “DisplayPorts” markets. The study will examine key drivers and trends impacting the market such as, rapid obsolescence of display technologies such as DVI, LVDS and VGA and the creation of lucrative market opportunities for DisplayPorts in the replacement market; growing consumer demand for electronic equipment with integrated DisplayPorts given the growing indispensability of high performance digital connection and the need for easy delivery of video to multiple displays; increasing integration of DisplayPorts as a standard element in PC chipsets, GPUs and display controllers; growing replacement of traditional A/V cables with DisplayPorts in the PC industry; growing popularity of Mini DisplayPorts (MiniDP) against a backdrop of miniaturization of computing devices like ultrabooks, PC notebooks, tablet PCs, among others.

Defined as a digital display interface based on packet-based transmission system and capable of carrying and/or sending high-definition video and audio signals from a source to a display device, DisplayPorts are expected to witness strong demand in the coming years. The growing need to replace legacy VGA and DVI connections is expected to spew attractive replacement opportunities for DisplayPorts. The growing base of smartphones, blu-ray DVDs, video and still cameras, HDTVs, gaming consoles like Xbox, and PS3, is also expected to positively benefit demand in the consumer market. In the enterprise sector, growing popularity of PCI Express and Infiniband is forecast to drive demand. Key advantages of DisplayPorts driving its adoption include low costs since unlike the HDMI technology use of these ports are royalty free, ability to connect multiple display devices on a single cable, higher bandwidth and data transmission speeds, and ability to support DRM-protected HD content. The coming years are expected to witness strong demand for upgraded dual-mode DisplayPorts capable of extending complete support for HDMI 1.4 video modes, especially so against the backdrop of the launch of ultra HD display devices.

The market is expected to face competition from the growing popularity of HDMI ports, and Wireless Display Technology (WIDI) which enables wireless transfer of video content to display devices from sources devices such as, laptops, and PCs. While the HDMI technology dominates the consumer home entertainment market (comprising of LCD TVs, plasma TVs, DVD players, game consoles etc.), DisplayPorts have a strong foothold in the commercial PC peripherals market. However, the launch of flat-panel PC monitors for dual use as a video display screen and as a computer monitor is expected to pitch both the display connector technologies against each other. The threat posed by WIDI is currently limited given that this technology developed by Intel requires built-in second generation Intel processors, and is therefore presently compatible only with Intel WIDI compliant devices. The study estimates DisplayPorts to be a multi-million dollar market worldwide, while more precise market-size and growth projections for a 14-year period will be made available during the 2nd stage of report preparation, and data analysis.

The research and analyses will be released shortly in the form of a comprehensive research report. The report by design, will attempt to provide exhaustive analysis, data, trends, market share, market size, statistics, forecasts and competitive intelligence. The report is modeled to offer precise and unbiased, actionable market insights including in-depth segmentation of market sub-sectors, demand estimates and projections and analysis of trends in each of the sectors, identification of leading players, and the competitive structure, among others.

Developed for Manufacturers, Strategic Planners, Business Development Executives, Management Consultants, Investment Bankers, Consulting Firms, Marketing & Sales Executives, C-Level Decision Makers, Market Strategists and Technology Domain Experts, the report helps identify the biggest opportunities in this space and offers accurate latent demand forecasting that empowers quantitative decision making among existing market players and new entrants.
