The rapid consumerization of IT and mature sensor technology has declined the costs of sensors. Moreover, advancements in technology have introduced new suppliers, such as providers of software and sensors, in the market, maintaining a moderate bargaining power of a supplier.

Furthermore, the shift towards hybrid and remote learning models, accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, amplified the demand for interactive projectors. These projectors enable immersive and interactive experiences in virtual classrooms, supporting the needs of remote learners and facilitating effective distance education. With the widespread shift to remote learning and remote work during the pandemic, there has been an increased demand for interactive projectors as they enable interactive and collaborative experiences in virtual environments. Educational institutions and businesses have adopted interactive projectors to facilitate engaging remote learning and virtual meetings.

Technology Insights

Based on technology, the industry is segmented into 3LCD, Liquid-Crystal-on-Silicon (LCoS), and Digital Light Processing (DLP). The 3LCD segment held the highest market share of 56.5% in 2022. 3LCD projectors are known for their excellent color accuracy and brightness levels. The increasing technological advancements in projection technology have increased the use of projectors for various applications. For instance, Epson developed a 3LCD projector with 6,000 lumens of brightness and a laser projector with 25,000 lumens of brightness.

For instance, in October 2022, Sony Electronics launched the VPL-PHZ61 and VPL-PHZ51, the world's smallest WUXGA 3LCD laser projectors. These projectors offer exceptional operational features, impressive brightness, and versatile installation options, making them ideal for various industries such as corporate, education, museum, entertainment, and simulation.

A DLP projector uses optical micro-electro-mechanical technology to deliver sharp images without filters. It also has 3D capabilities. Recent advancements in DLP technology include the three-chip system used for stage productions, large venues, and award ceremonies. Some of the key DLP projector brands include Sharp Corporation (Japan), BenQ Corporation (Taiwan), and Optoma Corporation (Taiwan).

The Liquid-Crystal-On-Silicon (LCoS) segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR of 23.7% over the forecast period. The growing popularity of LCoS-based interactive projectors can be attributed to their numerous benefits. LCoS technology provides sharper and more vibrant images with high contrast ratios, making the projected content visually appealing and engaging. LCoS projectors often have higher resolutions, allowing for detailed and clear visuals.

Application Insights

Based on applications, the industry is segmented into education, business, healthcare, and others. The education segment dominated the market with a market share of 46.1% in 2022. The growing need for energy-efficient and environment-friendly projectors in the education sector is anticipated to drive the interactive projector market. Furthermore, the growing expenditure on K-12 education in the U.S. will likely influence segment growth.

With the advent of IoT, there is a predominant increase in the penetration of interactive projection displays in the smart homes segment. The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) reshaped the U.S. education industry from fact-based instruction to teaching that fostered critical thinking.

The education segment growth is driven by various factors, including the FAITH project launched by the Turkey government, an initiative for providing tablets and interactive classrooms to all students. For instance, in September 2022, BenQ, a professional education display solutions provider, launched the next-generation Pro Series Interactive Flat Panel with innovative features such as the world's first Air Ioniser, Eyesafe® Certification, and Advanced ClassroomCare, which is certainly exciting. These advancements enhance the classroom experience by providing real-time collaboration and addressing important aspects such as air quality and eye safety.

The healthcare segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR of 24.7% over the forecast period. Interactive projectors communicate information to patients, staff, and visitors. They are also used to provide information about insurance issues, health, and healthcare products & services to patients in a waiting room.

Projection Distance Insights

Based on projection distance, the industry is segmented into the standard throw, short throw, and ultra-short throw. The ultra-short-throw segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 66.7% in 2022 and is anticipated to retain its position over the forecast period. Ultra-short-throw projectors are designed to be placed close to the projection surface, typically just a few inches away. This design eliminates extensive mounting and allows for a larger projected image, even in limited spaces. It is particularly advantageous in classrooms and meeting rooms, where space is often limited. Interactive projectors, like infrared or laser sensors, use various technologies to detect and track user input. With an ultra-short-throw projection setup, users can interact with the projected content more accurately and comfortably without any noticeable input lag.

Global Interactive Projector Market share and size, 2022

The short throw segment is estimated to register a significant CAGR of 18.5% over the forecast period. The increasing popularity of show throw projection distance drives the demand for longer throw distances. Projection mapping involves projecting dynamic visuals onto irregularly shaped surfaces or objects, creating mesmerizing visual effects. Longer throw distances enable projection mapping over larger areas, enhancing this technology's creative possibilities and impact in various industries, including entertainment, advertising, and art installations.

Regional Insights

North America accounted for the largest market share of 39.2% in 2022, majorly due to the rapid growth of cloud-based streaming services in the U.S. Developed economies, such as North America and Europe, are expected to witness significant growth due to bio-diverse cultures and increasing awareness among end-users. The prevailing large consumer base and increasing penetration of BYOD are the major factors driving the North American regional market.

On the other hand, Asia Pacific is projected to demonstrate growth at the fastest CAGR of 24.7% over the forecast period. The region is witnessing widespread adoption of digitalization across various industries. Interactive projectors play a vital role in this digital transformation, enabling businesses to deliver impactful presentations, interactive meetings, and collaborative workspaces. With the growing emphasis on interactive communication and collaboration, businesses invest in interactive projectors to enhance productivity and foster innovative work environments.

Interactive Projector Market Trends by Region, 2023 - 2030

The industry players are likely to target the Asia Pacific region, owing to government initiatives such as the smart classroom policy in Thailand, which is spurring market demand in the region.
