Analysts: Ultra HD Blu-ray Player Sales Continue To Advance In 2018

Despite some early challenges, shipments of 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players continued to climb at significant rates over the first half of 2018, according to data from two prominent consumer A/V market research firms.

Stephen Baker, technology business analyst for the Port Washington, N.Y.-based NPD Group, said that so far Ultra HD Blu-ray player sales increased by more than 150% over 2017 and the revenue is up 61%. The {Average Selling Price] ASP is $165 this year compared to $272 for the first 5 months of 2017.

Baker said that in May alone sales of Ultra HD Blu-ray players in the United States increased 82% and revenue increased 13% with an ASP of $168.

Retail-initiated discounts appeared in U.S. retail stores for select periods in the first half on Ultra HD Blu-ray players, with street promotional prices dropping as low as $100 on some models. Historically, that has been a catalyst point for greater software availability from leading movie studios, driving even greater sales momentum for players.

NPD estimated 4K Ultra HD represented about 15% of Blu-ray unit sales for the first five months of 2018.

Bill Hunt at digital bits has a piece about why it's important for physical media should continue. And i have seen posts that people that keep there movies in the cloud when trying to watch a movie find the movie they purchased is gone! Which means to me even after buying the movie you don't really own it. Physical media you own it. My point maybe that piece by Bill hunt has had some effect on 4K blu-ray players sales.
