With the introduction of more affordable large screen televisions, projector sales took a downturn.  In fact, they've been down consistently since 2006, when they hit their peak.   In the first quarter of 2010, projectors brought in 72 million dollars, which is 10 million more than the first quarter numbers from 2009.  It's still a far reach from sales in 2006, but it's definitely an upward trend.

The amount of projectors sold increased by nearly 50 percent, while the amount of money brought in only increased by 17.  So either projector sales were huge in the last few months, or lower cost projectors started selling really well.

Tamaryn Pritt of Quixel Research – the analysts who crunched the numbers – says that entry level models are what made the difference.  "Both DLP and 3LCD entry level HD1080p models were widely available and hovering around the $999 and $1499 range, which wasn’t the case early last year."
