The HDMI specification combines high-definition video and multi-channel audio in one digital interface. While its strength continues to be in the consumer electronics (CE) segment, recent gains in PCs and mobile phones have overall HDMI device shipment CAGR approaching 21% from 2009-2014, according to In-Stat.

“HDMI is in all, or nearly all, of the digital televisions, Blu-ray players and recorders, standard-definition DVD players and recorders, and HD set-top boxes that shipped in 2010,” says Brian O’Rourke, Research Director. “HDMI also showed dramatic increases in portable consumer devices, like HD camcorders and digital still cameras in 2010. On the PC side, HDMI’s share of mobile PCs, graphics cards, and PC monitors is increasing. Additionally, mobile phones with HDMI ports shipped in the millions for the first time in 2010.”

Some of the findings include:

  • Over 350 million consumer electronic devices shipped with HDMI in 2010.
  • HDMI is gaining traction in mobile PCs, graphics cards, and PC monitors.
  • HDMI appeared in automobiles for the first time in 2010 in the Honda Odyssey minivan.
  • DVI device shipments will increase through 2011 before starting a slow decline due to competition from both DisplayPort and HDMI.

Recent In-Stat research, DVI and HDMI: DVI Won’t Die and HDMI Rolls On (#IN1004688MI), gives annual penetration forecasts through 2014 for both DVI and HDMI by:
