Samsung Top Selling TV Manufacturer


Samsung Electronics was the top maker of televisions in the second quarter of this year with a share of 12.4% of the global TV market. Second, third, fourth and fifth place were taken by LG Electronics, Philips, Sanyo Electric and TCL respectively. Samsung's dominance has had a lot to do with the strong sales of LCD TVs this year.

Research firm iSuppli has forecasted that as flat-screen LCD TVs and plasma TVs gain in popularity over the next year, cathode ray tube (CRT) TVs will account for only 38% of TV sales next year compared to 56% this year. Samsung was trailed closely by LG Electronics with only a 1% market share separating the two companies, so it will be interesting to see if this competition heats up as CRT's lose popularity over the next few years.
