The rapid rise of high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) and the slow decline of Digital visual interface (DVI) continued in 2008, reports In-Stat market tracking agency. This is completely logical as HDMI continues to replace DVI from consumer electronics market, while the DVI will have to surrender to DisplayPort in the PC space several years from now.

The primary driver of HDMI’s success is the consumer electronics (CE) segment, with HDMI ports being found on 95% of the digital televisions (DTV) shipped worldwide in 2008, the greatest volume for HDMI in any product, the high-tech market research firm says. The vast majority of DVI shipments occurred in PC and PC peripheral markets.

“HDMI is beginning to take off in mobile PCs as an interface that can operate in the PC or CE cluster. In the near future, the interesting CE products to watch will be portable electronic devices, including camcorders, digital still cameras, and portable media players (PMPs). The interest of those products’ vendors is being piqued by the introduction of smaller HDMI connectors,” said Brian O’Rourke, an In-Stat analyst.

Recent research by In-Stat also found the following:

  • DVI-enabled product shipments will decline at an annual rate of 30% through 2012
  • HDMI-enabled product shipments will increase at an annual rate of 23% over the same period
