Promethean continues to be a global leader for interactive display technology, according to Futuresource Consulting’s Q1 2021 report on World Interactive Displays.
As the education system worldwide began to get a handle on remote and hybrid learning models, the demand for interactive displays in classrooms remained strong. According to Futuresource Consulting’s Q1 2021 report, interactive display sales had a year-over-year increase of 74%, making it by far the largest Q1 to date. As schools around the world are settling into the new normal of hybrid learning models, interactive whiteboards and flat panel displays continue to remain one of the best tools in K-12 classrooms where teachers can build interactive lessons and bring them to life in any environment.
Excluding China, Promethean was the leading brand with a 23.3% share of the total global interactive flat panel display market over the last twelve months. In that same time period, Promethean gained market share in the UKI, USA and Germany. Most recently, in Q1 2021, the company also continued its strong performance track record in the United Kingdom and Ireland, achieving a 26.7% market share.
Promethean’s continued success in Q1 is attributed to its ActivPanel Elements Series which includes increased personalisation functionality and enhanced security, giving teachers additional flexibility and IT leaders better manageability. Continuing Promethean’s 20+ year tradition of developing purpose-built products designed by teachers for teachers, the ActivPanels’ tablet-like user interface places all of the most commonly used tools right at teachers’ fingertips. The menu is always accessible and allows teachers to move seamlessly between content and resources without disrupting the flow of the lesson. The ActivPanel includes Promethean’s lesson delivery software ActivInspire and ClassFlow, which keep remote, hybrid, and in-person students engaged in interactive lessons, activities, quizzes, and thousands of immersive resources from educators worldwide.
“As the world is in the early stages of regaining some normalcy, Promethean continues to be dedicated to ensuring educators, students and parents have access to an elite learning experience regardless of location or resources,” Chris Hand, Chief Revenue Officer at Promethean. “With a notable increased level in optimism across suppliers, distributors, and partners, coupled with strong demand from schools, we are proud to be a leader in this space with solutions like our ActivPanel Elements Series which allows for dynamic learning across the globe.”
