Some 2.12 million front projectors were shipped worldwide in the fourth quarter of 2013, rising six per cent year on year to earn vendors $2.63bn (£1.58bn).
That's from Futuresource Consulting's latest report into the market, which also found that EMEA sales expanded four per cent year on year to 702,000 units.
"With 412,000 units shipped during Q4 of calendar year 2013, Western Europe also enjoyed an overall year-on-year growth of three per cent, largely due to strong retail sales in France and Germany, whose markets had year-on-year increases of eight and nine per cent respectively," the market research company wrote in its related announcement.
Unfortunately, the UK did not see a rise, however – and nor did EMEA as a whole, which experienced a year-on-year decline of six per cent.
"A reduced sell-in to the UK's under-represented retail market for projectors saw the country experience a five per cent year-on-year decline in total sales in the final quarter," according to Futuresource.
The strongest growth was seen in Eastern Europe and the US, both of which enjoyed a 12 per cent year-on-year rise in sell-in during Q4.
