Blu-ray industry to be worth 28 billion dollars by 2010

August 3rd, 2006 · 2 Comments

According to the Santa Clara Consulting Group research firm, the market for hardware and software will be worth 2 billion US dollars by the end of the year, rising to 28 billion by 2010. 4 billion of this will come from BD players alone. “High-definition content will be a central focus for companies in the consumer electronic, gaming, entertainment, and PC industries and blue laser disc technology is a critical component to the development of these markets,” says managing director David Bunzel.
Bunzel says he is unconvinced by the early groundwork that Toshiba has done with , believing that the buyers of HD DVD decks are early adopters who are just as likely to buy Blu-ray players as well.
Like many industry observers, he feels that the PlayStation 3 remains a pivotal product in the HD disc media clash.
