Epson continues to extend its position as the leading projector manufacturer in the Pro AV and installation market above 6,000 lumens across EMEAR and CIS, according to latest market share data from Futuresource. 

According to the the figures, Epson now commands 34 per cent of the Pro AV market across EMEAR, an increase of 12 percentage points over the same period last year, with market share continuing to increase in 2018.

Across the world, Epson has held the number one market share position for projectors for 17 successive years, with total global sales of projectors of 23.7 million since 2006. 

It claims to be the market share global leader for projectors above 6,000 lumens commanding a 31 per cent volume share, nine percentage points higher than its nearest rival, understood (but not revealed by Epson) to be Panasonic.

Back in May of this year, Epson – again using figures from Futuresource – released a statement claiming to be the leading projector manufacturer in the Pro AV and installation market above 6,000 lumens, with 26.7 per cent of the Pro Displays market, an increase of almost 11 percentage points over the same period last year.

Today (December 4), it claims to have for the first time, taken the lead as the ProAV market share leader in the UK with a 35 per cent volume share.

Neil Colquhoun, vice president CISMEA and professional displays, Epson Europe, said: “What is particularly pleasing is the number of new customers that we have engaged with who have moved to Epson from competitor brands and substitute technologies. Many of these customers have done so because they have seen how we have satisfied our existing customer base without whom we would not have the success we do."

He continued: “2019 will be even bigger and better as we launch our long-awaited L20000U 20k lumen WUXGA projector and L12000Q 12k lumen native 4k model, amongst other exciting new products soon to be announced.”
