DVD dominated manufacturer-to-dealer sales of video products in the 3rd and
4th quarters of 2001, "further solidifying the digital revolution,"
according to year-end sales figures from the Consumer Electronics
Association (CEA). DVD unit sales exceeded 12.7 million units in 2001,
continually outselling VCRs from September through December, it says.
The acceleration of DVD sales notwithstanding, VCR sales came out on top for
the year with 14,910,476 units compared to DVD's 12,706,584 units. The DVD
total represents a 49.5% increase over 2000 DVD unit sales. CEA projects
14.9 million DVD units will be sold this year.
