ID: MRFR/SEM/2133-CR | August 2017 | Region: Global | 100 pages

Market Overview

Market Research Future (MRFR) presumes the Global 4K Technology Market size to hit USD 150,202 Million with a CAGR of 21.29% from 2016 to 2023 (forecast period). The 4K technology is designed to replace HD technology from TV screens, cameras, computer monitors, and projectors. The term 4K is used to refer to video signals with a horizontal resolution on the order of 4,000 pixels. The resolution of 4K is 4096 x 2160 pixels (approximately a 1.9:1 aspect ratio). In full HD resolution created by Blu-ray technology, a 4K image consists of almost 8.3 million pixels, while a 1080p image has just over 2 million pixels.

COVID-19 Impact on the Global 4K Technology Market

The industry is expected to undergo a small decline as a result of the worldwide outbreak of a novel coronavirus pandemic. Manufacturing activities are at a halt due to labor shortages. This led to a significant decline in demand from the end-use industries.

Market Dynamics


  • Higher resolution and better efficiency

The main benefits of 4K technology are higher resolution and better efficiency. In the home context, 4K/UHD means that the TV screen has a minimum resolution of 3,840 pixels wide and 2,160 pixels high, equivalent to two 1080p screens in height and two in length. This resolution was commonly known as quad HD and is used by basically every 4K TV. The 4K technology has few drawbacks that impede the growth of the market.

  • Advancement in technology

New technologies allow users to capture and edit the sharpest video without losing quality. 4K cameras support the flash memory used by photographers and videographers. 4K cameras have the ability to film videos with any single frame, as a high-resolution image enables photographers to capture videos without compromising quality. The high resolution in the 4K market offers users with detailed gaming features. The QHD or 4K laptop consists of an extra pixel that offers photographers with a sharp image, smooth text, and graphics. The extra pixels in 4K laptops give users the option of better photo and video editing. 4K laptops provide users with high storage for software interfaces.


  • Limited content recording and high cost of 4K televisions

The content recorded in 4K are still limited. It is important to have a minimum bandwidth of 25Mbps to transfer videos in 4K. The exported archives are very heavy and take up a lot of space. The prices of 4K televisions are not available for all pockets.
