High dynamic range (HDR) features will be on some HD television sets and help boost 4K’s momentum. ABI Research forecasts that HDR TV shipments will grow at a 41 per cent CAGR and reach 245 million units in 2022. 8K TV sets are still years away from permeating the global market, with market hype currently centering on Japan’s plans to deliver 8K video at the 2020 Olympics.
“As evident with Sony’s recent announcement to include HDR in all its new TV sets, the next-generation TV technology will soon be a prominent feature in many Ultra-HD TV sets,” says Khin Sandi Lynn, Industry Analyst at ABI Research. “While some less expensive sets will not yet support the technology, high-end TV manufacturers recognize the value that HDR functionality brings to the viewing experience.”
