Market Report Description

The Global Projection Mapping Market size is expected to reach $8.4 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 20.1% CAGR during the forecast period.

Projection mapping refers to a projection technology that is utilized to rotate an area or an object (frequently irregularly shaped) into a feasible surface for animation, video or other colorful displays to be projected. The objects or areas that are utilized for projection mapping can include small indoor objects to areas like big theatrical stages or industrial landscapes or buildings. The projection mapping market is constantly rising owing to the massive utilization of technology in an application like advertising and film. Projection mapping can be performed in 2-D, 3-D, and 4-D and can be installed in various areas.

The growing developments in the Projection Mapping Market have resulted in various factors that are boosting the market like higher customer satisfaction and a surge in the adoption of the technology in several industries. Aspects like the absence of awareness about the projection mapping, the cost of the technology which is needed to perform the projection mapping, and scarcity of personnel that holds expertise regarding the appropriate operation of the projection mapping technology is acting as a barrier to the growth of the market.

Some of the major aspects which are crucial for choosing the projector appropriate for the application are the size of the venue, throw distance, and the ambient lighting at the venue. The light processing elements in a projector comprises a projector lamp that identifies the brightness provided and the color wheel which controls the color output. Technically, more brightness can be generated with the help of a higher wattage lamp.

While choosing a projector, brightness is considered as a major & crucial specification. It is displayed in lumens or ANSI lumens. Lumens estimate the strength of the light source in the projectors. Projectors for auditoriums or large venues start at 7,000 lumens; however, if the venue is extremely big or brightly lit, projectors with 25,000 lumens or higher might be required. Some of the industry professionals have noted that for big screens or canvases, projectors approximately 75,000 lumens are the most suitable as implementing one projector is quite easy to install and align many according to the requirements, decreasing the possibilities of failure.
