Unit sales of Blu-ray players globally — excluding Sony’s PlayStation 3 video games console — are projected to top 40 million by 2012, according to a new report from Parks Associates. The Dallas-based research firm said sales of standalone Blu-ray players will reach 5 million units this year, compared to 800,000 units in 2007.
Consumer electronics manufacturers continue to underscore the surge in Blu-ray player sales, with most model prices hovering below $300.
