CEA Releases Digital America 2007 Publication

CEA Logo

The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) has released Digital America 2007, its annual publication detailing the growth of the CE industry. It also offers insights, trends, market research data and analysis on product categories such as accessories, audio, digital imaging, gaming, home networking, home theater, mobile in-vehicle electronics, video and wireless communications.

Some highlights:

  • Americans purchased more than $145 billion in CE products in 2006, a record amount that represents a 13 percent increase over the previous year.
  • Sales of accessories for all CE categories are flourishing, particularly sales of flash media which is showing double-digit growth – a trend that CEA projects will continue through 2010.
  • 33 percent of U.S. households owned an MP3 player by January 2007 and CEA projects that MP3 players will account for 90 percent of portable audio sales in the coming year.
  • Wireless handsets accounted for about one-eighth of the more than $145 billion consumer electronics industry this past year and more than one billion mobile phones were sold worldwide.

Digital America 2007 also recounts a brief history of major technologies starting with the discovery of electricity in 1752 up to the innovation of broadcast TV and cell phones in 2007.

The annual publication is available free for CEA members. Non-members may get their print copies and CD-ROMs for $50.
