Though Xiaomi managed to breeze previous Samsung because the world’s largest smartphone producer, the latter continues to be king of the hill in relation to sensible TVs.
That’s largely on account of Samsung’s objectively superior merchandise, that are second solely to the likes of LG. Now a brand new research by Chinese language market analysis agency Auweiyun sheds mild on the sensible TV market.
Samsung retains prime spot within the sensible TV market
The research states that 98.3 million TVs have been bought in H1 2021. That determine isn’t terribly stunning, given the elevated demand for content material consumption peripherals. Samsung outshined all of its competitors by transport practically 20.8 million sensible TVs, which represents a 11% enhance in comparison with final 12 months.
Arch-nemesis LG got here in second with 13.1 million models shipped, adopted by TCL at 11.4 million. Xiaomi is fifth on the checklist, adopted by the likes of Sony, Phillips and different gamers.
Xiaomi’s slide to fifth place is barely alarming, as the corporate has shifted a whole lot of focus in direction of dominating the low-cost sensible TV market, but it surely clearly received outshined by its compatriots specifically TCL and Hisense. Just a little reevaluation in technique might assist propel Xiaomi forward of Hisense and TCL, however it’s unlikely to catch as much as LG, not to mention Samsung, anytime quickly.
Samsung and LG’s hegemony over the high-end sensible TV section is what units them aside from the competitors. It’s a bit disappointing to see Sony relegated to sixth place, as the corporate is without doubt one of the higher TV makers on the market. Apart from, most TV producers depend on panels made by both firm, so Samsung/LG nonetheless receives a commission on the finish of the day.
