Global TV Shipments Hit Historic High As Pandemic Impacts Sales
According to a new report from TrendForce, global TV shipments hit a historical high in the third quarter of 2020. Samsung and LG, the two largest TV manufacturers in the world, are estimating profits to increase this quarter in comparison to 2019.
62.05 million units were shipped in the third quarter of 2020. This represents a 12.9 per cent increase compared to the same period in 2019. It’s also a 38.8 per cent increment from the previous quarter.
According to TrendForce, the historic high can be easily explained. For example, it says that in North America, TV demand increased by 20 per cent because people spent more time at home due to the pandemic.
