Market Overview

The pico projector market was valued at USD 2.08 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach a value of USD 4.60 billion by 2024, registering a CAGR of about 15% during the forecast period 2019 - 2024. With the increase in the number of new entrants, the competition among the existing players has intensified, each player is striving to scale their position, by actively investing in this technology and projection devices.

  • Pico projector systems constitute an evolving technology and are expected to transform the global projector market, by shrinking the size of projectors, down to convenient sizes that fit into a hand. These projectors can also be embedded into small hand-held devices, as accessories to tablets, cameras, personal digital assistants, laptops, and smartphones.
  • Pico projectors can produce naked-eye 3D motion pictures with high resolution, where a user can watch movies and games in a glass-free device. Moreover, with the rapid advancements in display technologies, such as 4K and 8K display panels, have also boosted the growth of the market.
  • The pico projectors have various applications in various industries. For Instance, in the defense and aerospace industry, a pico projector can assist the armed forces with a 3D projection of real-time location of enemy deployments, bunker locations, and plot charts of sea-or land-based enemies force structure. 

Scope of the Report

A pico projector is a small handheld device that has all the characteristics of a traditional projector, capable of displaying content on a flat surface. They are an excellent choice for mobility, low energy consumption and resolution as compared to large and bulky projectors.

Key Market Trends

Increased Adoption of the Digital Light Processing (DLP) Technology to Drive the Market

  • DLP type projectors rely primarily on a DLP chip, or digital micromirror device (DMD), which comprises of up to two million tiny mirrors, where each mirror is one-fifth the width of a human hair.
  • A DLP projector with three-chip architecture can project up to 35 trillion colors. Being light-source agnostic, DLP technology can effectively use a variety of light sources, which is the primary reason for the growth of this technology.
  • With the incorporation of new technologies into the automotive sector, it is expected to pose a positive effect on the pico projector market, as many automotive manufacturers are employing high-quality image projection systems in their vehicles. With pico DLP projector that can produce high-quality images, the advancements in the autonomous car technology are fueling the growth of the overall pico DLP projector systems market.
