Forecasts, Human Factors, Technology and Market Factors for Projectors with Hybrid Solid State Illumination

April 2012


Hybrid projectors were first introduced commercially by Casio at CES in 2010 and have since been introduced by multiple additional vendors. These projectors have all used a laser-excited green phosphor instead of a lamp, LED or laser to produce the green light. Currently pure LED projectors cannot achieve sufficient output to enter this >2000 lumen market and lasers are too expensive for most end-users. Going forward, hybrid projectors are expected to cannibalize an increasing share of the lamp-based projector market. Projector manufacturers, LED, laser and lamp suppliers, optical component suppliers, module makers and others need to understand the upcoming changes in the projection market that hybrid projectors portend. This report is designed to address this need.
