The stage was set for 8K long before COVID-19 changed our world in 2020. In fact, 8K televisions were unveiled in 2019 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). While the pandemic may have slowed the transition to 8K, it also has generated more interest and increased demand for high-definition resolution options. The pandemic has also altered how content is captured, leading to cloud-based and remote production that is already using 8K technology for background and exterior shots, as well as smart cropping. We expect to see the demand for 8K accelerate as we emerge from the long shadow of COVID-19.

In Q1 2021, factors such as increasing demand for consumer electronics contributed to causing a global shortage in the supply of components. This is part of a megatrend seeing COVID-19 producing distortions in the dynamics of supply and demand in different markets, which, according to analysts, may ultimately lead to inflationary pressures. In the case of consumer electronics, the move to remote working and the concurrent disruptions in global supply chains caused by COVID-19 may have produced an imbalance between demand and supply. Other areas such as labor markets are experiencing a similar trend - i.e., demand outstripping supply - due to factors such as unprecedented fiscal spending by governments. IABM conducted a poll on component shortages in April 2021 to measure the impact of this megatrend on the media technology industry. The poll's findings show that this is a serious issue for most media technology suppliers, and it is a global problem. Anecdotal research carried out by IABM highlighted that this is not a temporary situation but rather a structural shock that may have prolonged effects. PC manufacturers such as Dell, HP, and Lenovo highlighted this situation in their recent investor calls, pointing to record demand for consumer electronics as the main driver for this and warning about price increases as well as shipping delays due to component shortages.
