PMA Research Flat Panel Tracking Shows Q12022 Sales and Revenues Exceeded Pre-Pandemic Levels

PMA Research (PMA), the worldwide market information experts on large displays, have published their latest sell-through tracking report on large-format (32-inch and larger) flat panel displays being sold by leading U.S. AV, PC and IT Distributors who typically serve commercial markets.

First quarter unit sales closed +8% in volume and +30% in revenues compared with 1Q2021. Last year, consumer television sales soared but professional display sales lagged. This year the opposite is true. For the first time since the pandemic hit the United States, sales for the quarter, both volume and revenues, exceeded sales during the same quarter of 2019.

While demand is still tempered by availability, there has been a distinct shift toward +75-inch displays over the past year. Nearly 25% of the volume fell into this category in March, and this trend has continued with the start of the second quarter.

Federal and state funding continued to drive K-12 education demand. April also saw increased corporate and government spending. There was also initial spending for hotel meeting rooms which started to host smaller groups as restrictions diminished.

In addition, the most popular screen size for interactive displays is 75-inches, with more than 50% market share. This size segment has seen the greatest price increases over the past 12 months despite aggressive brand competition.

PMA’s monthly Flat Panel Distributor Tracking report offers timely sell-through data and analysis on unit sales and market trends of large-format displays sold by leading U.S. AV and IT Distributors. These reports are ideal for tracking product and channel trends.
