I am looking for a Global Market Report on Recordable Optical Media. Do you have something?

Good day,

Thank you for submitting your question.  Within all our reports about the consumers electronics industry, below are the main reports found with historical sales data for the recordable optical media formats.

Report 1: Moser Baer India (MOSR.BO), Oct 2007

There is a chart depicting the global demand for optical storage media in three formats:  (1) CDR, (2) DVDR, and (3) Bluray.  There is also a chart that shows the number of installed units (in millions of units) globally from 2004 through 2011 with the compound annual growth rate for 6 different optical media drives including the recordable type of CD-R/RW.

“Global optical media shipments for DVD-R/RW are expected to grow 43% yoy to ~9 billion units in 2007 from ~6 billion units in 2006. While the CD-R/RW formats continue to decline marginally on a global basis, the key driver for this growth will be DVDR/RW and blue laser based formats” (pg 8).
