Blu-ray Sells over $330m in Q1 2010

5. April, 2010 Tech 6 comments

Estimates from the research department of Home Media Magazine are listed each week on sales posts. Today they revealed that  revenues from BD sales in the US in the first quarter of 2010 were over $331.31 million! This is 68.5% more than in the same period of 2009. Blu-ray accounted for 12.3% of packaged-media sales revenue in the first three months of the year (versus 7.0% in Jan-Mar 2009).The biggest-selling week in the quarter was the week ended March 25, with $45.46 million in BD sales.

I just found some of these numbers interesting to look at. Blu-ray is definably a growing and evolving market. It looks like they have a long way to go to push DVD out of the way but at least they can start showing other companies such as APPLE, that Blu-ray is making money and is worth investing in as a new standard. I think it will be interesting to watch Blu-rays growth over the next few years, especially now that digital distribution is starting to rear its head.

    Well, to be fare, Blu-ray won the battle between HD-Disc vs Blu-ray, however, it will not win the HD war. That victory will go to digital distribution because digital content do not require any specific codec only that the material be digital and that it be encode in the highest format possible.

    In some ways, Sony has done it again, they created a format that is clearly superior to their competitor, however, in as little as five to ten years it won’t matter.

    Digital Distribution is now…..

      Although you have a point, there are still people out there that like a hard copy. Even a few years later, I’m sure there will still be people that want a physical copy of there media. Why? because it is more realiable than a digital copy for one. It is VERY easy to lose a digital copy that you might have stored. Granted, a physical copy can break, but it is less likely to break than a digital copy is to get lost (deleted by accident, corrupted, etc). Until there is a way that digital content is more secure, physical media is here to stay.
