Promethean has been named the global leader in interactive flat panel displays (IFPDs) for education from Q2 2022 to Q1 2023, according to Futuresource Consulting’s Q1 2023 report on the World IFPD market. The company has been the No. 1 by volume in the global K-12 education nursery, primary, and secondary sector (excluding China) since 2018 and has held the top spot for more than five years.  

In the last 12 months, Promethean captured 21.2% of the K-12 market share globally and 30.3% in the United States. In Q1 alone, Promethean had a strong quarter in the United States as the leading brand, capturing 31.6% market share.

The launch of the ActivPanel LX in the first quarter of 2023 marked a major expansion of the company’s current portfolio of products. ActivPanel LX is a lower-cost panel that provides customers exceptional ease of use and flexibility, along with the quality and longevity the company is known for. With this latest offering, Promethean is well-positioned to meet the needs of a growing segment of the education technology market.
