The global Blu-ray Discs market is projected to reach about US$7.0 billion by the year 2018. Growth will be primarily driven by growing demand for high-definition home entertainment including blu-ray disc players, blu-ray home theaters, and blu-ray compatible video game consoles (Sony PlayStation). The development of web-enabled/network-capable blu-ray devices and 3D blu-ray disc players also augurs well for the future of the market.
Growing concerns over carbon footprint of data storage technologies is also throwing the spotlight on blu-ray. For instance, Carbon footprint of data storage is on the rise given the tendency among enterprises to sequentially complicate the complexity of storage infrastructures with increases in data volumes. This in turn increases the carbon footprint of data storage primarily because complex and sophisticated data storage solutions, such as storage area networks have huge energy, cooling and connectivity needs, all which increases both carbon emissions and power consumption. Stricter environmental mandates governing an organization's carbon footprint including emissions resulting from data storage is now throwing the spotlight on "Green Archive" solutions, at the heart of which are optical disc solutions like the blu-ray technology. Against a scenario of an evolving carbon conscious society, blu-ray discs are optimally positioned to benefit given their low carbon footprint and their relatively robust long-term archiving capabilities. The ensuing refocus and re-emphasis of companies on optical disc technology is likely to drive future gains in the market for blu-ray discs.Report Scope
