Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s team said: “Online retailers are increasingly promoting DVDs and BDs and offering attractive packages to consumers. Discounts on the purchase of DVDs or BDs and low-cost combination packs of DVDs and BDs are some such offers. The increasing penetration of the internet has made it easier for consumers to shop online. In competition to these online stores, retail stores are also offering discounts, thus increasing competition and ultimately benefitting the consumer but adversely affecting market growth.”
According to the report, the growth in the Global DVD and BD market is driven by diminishing prices of BD players and the rapid adoption of HD-enabled devices. Increasing demand for HD content has led to a rapid increase in the demand for BDs.
Further, the report states that piracy is a major threat that could adversely affect the growth of this market. Censorship policies in China and inaction on piracy in India are obstructing the sale of legitimate DVDs and BDs in the market.

About DVD and BD
A DVD is an optical disk used to store information. A DVD capacity ranges from 4.7 GB to 17 GB, over seven times than a CD can store. A DVD can be single-sided or double-sided with multiple layers. A Blu-ray disc (BD) is also an optical disc capable of recording, rewriting and playing back HD videos. BDs supersede DVDs in terms of storing information. BDs use a blue-violet laser that has a shorter wavelength compare to a red laser. This allows BDs to store data more precisely using less space.
TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global DVD and BD market will decline at a CAGR of (3.64) percent over the period 2013-2018.
