According to PMA Research, Epson continues to hold the number one position in North America for 2013 with a market share of 39 percent, representing a five-point increase year-over-year. With positive revenue growth four years in a row, Epson had the largest total revenue increase in the North American projector market in 2013 with a 24 percent share, which represents a nearly six-point increase year-over-year.
The two largest market share segments for Epson are home entertainment (52 percent of the native 1080p category) and SMB with a 37 percent market share. Recently, Epson launched a line of high brightness projectors (4,000-5200 lumens) and it will be interesting to see the company’s growth in that category for 2014 — it should be quite large.
In Epson’s line of projectors, they only sell 3LCD projectors, instead of using the popular DLP technology that many of it’s competitors use.
At Kettner Creative, one of our most popular rental projectors is the Epson 2800 Lumen Projector, which we believe offers the best value in terms of <3000 Lumen projectors. We are looking to expand further into the Epson line this year.
