eBook Display Demand Predicted To Hit 25-30 Million

Demand for eReaders is predicted to be high this year. At least in terms of how many eReader screens will be needed to make the eReaders.

Speaking at the Emerging Display Technologies conference in San Jose yesterday, E Ink Holdings chief marketing officer Sriram Peruvemba said that overall demand for eInk displays could hit 25 million to 30 million units this year. VentureBeat.com has more: “Display Search, a market research firm that is putting on the conference, estimates that e-book display demand could hit around 27 million units this year. That’s about three times the number sold in 2010.”

Peruvemba’s confidence was echoed by the company’s CEO Scott Liu last month, when he said that he expects screen shipments to increase every month from July to October.
