Essentially there are close to 70 manufacturers selling projectors in the United States and the EU. These would be companies fully set up with distribution, service, and support. There are literally hundreds of other manufacturers, primarily, Chinese, that do sell projectors, mostly the very small Pico ones. We do not track those because even when available, from companies like, we cannot be sure of whether they offer professional support and service. Therefore, these are the major manufacturers you should be considering. If we were to really break it down, there are no more than a dozen companies in the home entertainment and home theater space. Almost all of which would be counted among the top 30 manufacturers of business and education projectors.

    Is there any International projector brand that makes LED lamp projectors in India?


      I honestly don’t know. I would suspect there are lamp manufacturers in India. There are certainly plenty in China. As to major players, those who manufacturer for the big projector brands, again, I don’t know, but you might want to check to see if Osram or Philips is making lamps there. -art

    Well, where can I find each of these manufacturers market share in US ?

    Who actually manufactures the 3LCD’s for Epson, etc? Do they do it themselves?


      Epson makes their own 3LCD panels. They are the largest manufacturer in the world. Sony used to compete against them, but to my knowledge only make LCD for their own projectors now, so may only have 5% or so of the market if that. Panasonic and many others use Epson panels. Ask Proxima is back, now as a Chinese owned company. Not sure where they get their panels or if they make their own (not real likely?). Epson has about 43% of all projector sales in North America – per Pacific Media, a major industry research firm. Not sure what their international market share is, but considering there are more DLP projectors than 3LCD, that supports the logic that says they pretty much are the only dominant player in 3LCD. -art

    I’m a vet of 94 who patented the projector for disabled person described at Anyone out there willing to suggest which of the long list of manufacturers I should reach out to? I’ve tried to get Dept of Vet Affairs to issue RFP but they don’t answer the mail. I’ve got a way to get this thing commercialized but I can’t wade through that list of 70 or so manufacturers and make an intelligent decision
