According to NPD In-Stat, HDMI has become the universal interface for nearly all advanced consumer electronic devices. DVI, on the other hand, will have serious competition from technologies like DisplayPort in PCs and PC monitors. There is no upgrade roadmap for DVI, and AMD will end DVI support in its chips by 2015. NPD In-Stat expects HDMI-enabled device shipments to grow to over 1 billion in 2014, while DVI-enabled shipments will decline by 9.4% annually through 2015.
Digital visual interface (DVI) and high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) are related, high-bandwidth, unidirectional, uncompressed digital interface standards. DVI was introduced in 1999 as a successor to VGA in the PC space, while HDMI is the dominant interface in CE devices. HDMI is found in every digital television (DTV) shipping in 2011 and in nearly every HD set top box. As a result of this current and forecasted level of penetration, future growth will come from other markets, such as mobile phones and consumer desktop and mobile PCs. This will negatively impact DVI’s future growth.
Here are some of the findings include in their DVI and HDMI research report:
- HDMI-enabled device shipments to grow to over 1 billion in 2014
- HDMI device shipments will increase by 17% annually through 2015
- DVI device shipments will increase through 2011 before starting a slow decline
- DVI-enabled shipments will decline by 9.4% annually through 2015
- HDMI will reach 65% penetration in the digital camcorder market in 2015
- DVI will increasingly be pressured by DisplayPort in the corporate PC market
