According to Anuj Mehrotra, Senior Research Analyst, 6Wresearch-India Electronics Division,"Growing need for portable projectors, decreasing TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) and rising need across application segments such as education, media & entertainment, Corporate and Healthcare have increased the awareness of PICO Projectors in the country.

According to Pulkit Shrivastava, Research Analyst, 6Wresearch-India Electronics Division, "Over the recent quarters, India Pico projector Market has witnessed entry of several new players with advanced technological capabilities.
