Current Market Trends

Projectors, interactive displays, screen casting equipment, conferencing equipment and loudspeakers accounted for 7% of total IT budgets on average when this research was carried out. That was a decline in both percentage terms and in real terms, likely due to funds being diverted elsewhere in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

More than 99.7% of school districts have at least one form of display device installed, although interactive flat panels only feature in around two in every three schools at present. Futuresource expects this to be an area of growth, with many districts planning future ownership, along with an increase in penetration of interactive whiteboards, based on decision-maker plans.

Planned ownership of visualizers and video-conferencing solutions is also looking positive. And while COVID-19 is likely to have accelerated demand for visualizers in the short-term, there are some phones and tablet applications which are designed to emulate visualizers, and these may impact growth in the longer term.
