Demand for consumer electronics (CE) devices is soaring in the U.S. in general and two product categories, namely stereo-3D televisions and tablet PCs are likely to become the fastest growing product categories in 2010 – 2011 timeframe, reports In-Stat market tracking agency.

According to the analysts, year-over-year shipment growth for stereoscopic 3D TV-sets and slate-type PCs/mobile Internet devices (MIDs) segments will be 142% and 231%, respectively, between 2010 and 2011 in the USA.

“The US installed base units for 3DTVs and MID/Tablets will double from 2010 to 2011 and on through 2013. In fact, In-Stat expects the total US installed base of CE devices to almost double between 2009 and 2013,” said Stephanie Ethier, an In-Stat analyst

Stereo-3D TVs and MIDs/tablets will represent a bright spot for CE manufacturers and content providers because the installed base for these segments will continue to expand steadily. However, these produce categories are not the only CE segments poised for strong growth in the U.S., a recent research by In-Stat found.

For example, the U.S. installed base for smartphones to reach 198 million by 2013. Mobile computers will continue to lead the computing category in units shipped through 2013. Unfortunately for manufacturers, maturing segments like portable media players (PMPs) and desktop PCs will show declining growth rates through 2013.

In-Stat claims that by 2013, there will be 1.9 billion installed consumer electronics devices in the U.S.

If 3D TV shipments grow by 231%, there will be about 8 sold in 2011.

Well, if it continues to be 231% (even if it's a modest figure based on such low figures as you claim, CSMR, to be only 8)..

Another 231% means about 30 in 2012.
Another 231% means about 100 in 2013.
Another 231% means about 350 in 2014.
Another 231% means about 1000 in 2015.
Another 231% means about 3500 in 2016.
Another 231% means about 10000 in 2017.
Another 231% means about 35000 in 2018.
Another 231% means about 100000 in 2019.
Another 231% means about 350000 in 2020.
And the magical million mark in 2021.

The way I see it is that the 2000's was the "Pre-Cambrian" times of 3D. The 2010's will be the Cambrian times of 3D as the world start to adopt for it, just like when the home PC slowly gained popularity during the 80's before the internet became ubiquitous in the 90's. And the 2020's will be the omnipresent 3D age.

Once we get there, we'll perceive 3D to be a bigger leap from 2D than the leap that color had over black and white.
