Devotion to education and learning continues to drive demand and increase Promethean’s presence in the market

(SEATTLE, April 1, 2020) – Promethean® was one of the globe’s leading brands for interactive technology, according to Futuresource Consulting’s Q4 report on World Interactive Displays.

With more than two million interactive displays sold across the world in 2019, interactive flat panels and interactive whiteboards are now a staple in today’s K-12 classroom. Teachers and education professionals use these interactive displays to engage students and create highly collaborative, dynamic classroom experiences. The displays also provide a key resource for education professionals to enhance lesson delivery and improve student performance.

Excluding China, sales of Promethean’s ActivPanels accounted for 18% of the total interactive display market in 2019 and 17.8% of sales in Q4 alone. In addition, Promethean maintained its leadership position in EMEA with 20% of market share for the year. The company also saw significant growth in Q4 2019 as school systems across the United States selected Promethean ActivPanels and helped the company achieve 24% of market share.

Promethean attributes much of its 2019 success to the launch of its ActivPanel Elements Series in June 2019. Continuing Promethean’s 20+ year tradition of developing purpose-built products that are designed by teachers for teachers, the Elements Series delivers innovation and ease-of-use that matters to teachers and students,  as well as the security and manageability trusted by IT professionals and administrators.

Promethean’s tablet-like user interface enables teachers and students to collaborate with ease and provides one place for accessing apps, tools, and files, saving time and making teaching with technology easier. The Element Series includes Promethean’s lesson delivery software, ActivInspire and ClassFlow, allowing teachers to build their own interactive lessons and bring lessons to life in any classroom technology environment.

“From the launch of our Elements Series to exciting expansions in key markets such as Egypt, Promethean experienced significant growth in operations and sales over the previous year,” Vin Riera, chief executive officer at Promethean. “Our mission at Promethean is to help teachers, educators, and information technology professionals create a productive and engaging learning experience for all, regardless of location or resources.”
