Samsung plans to sell 8 million QLED TVs this year


Samsung has been one of the leaders in the TV field for over 14 years, and its QLED TV has a place in the high-end market. This year, Samsung plans to sell more QLED TVs to increase its market share and widen the gap between LG and Sony. According to media reports, Samsung plans to sell 8 million QLED TVs in 2020. This will be an increase of more than 50% compared to 5.3 million last year. In the QLED TV field, Samsung’s market share is close to 90%. LG, Hisense, Huawei, TCL, and Vizio also produce QLED TVs, but they have a smaller market share relative to Samsung.

According to reports, Vizio sold 380,000 QLED TVs last year, while Huawei and TCL each sold 500,000 QD TVs. Hisense successfully shipped about 300,000 QLED TVs in 2019.

QLED TV models account for 12.1% of Samsung TV’s total sales. LG sells some QLED TV models but focuses on OLED TVs in the high-end market segment. The Korean company has more than 65% market share in the field of OLED TVs. Samsung sells almost twice as many QLED TVs as LG OLED TVs. In addition, Sony is also focusing on OLED TVs, not QLED TVs in the high-end price category.

In the high-end TV market, the South Korean manufacturer occupied 52.4% of the market share last year. This is more than double the market share of Sony’s high-end TV.

    Samsung also has the largest number of panels on the market opting for quantity over quality. Their proccessing is laughable in their television and is blown away by Sony’s X1 and LG’s alpha 7&9. They make bright pictures but not necessarily great pictures. Their TV’s have some software gimmicks that I find laughable such as the black levels on the q90. I’m amazed so many people have fallen for the shiny picture of Samsung when the more natural looking Sony (with much better motion) is around the same price. Sure Samsung is great for basic television watchers but we are talking premium here. Sony takes it all day in premium LEDs and OLED but I suppose LG does a nice job as well in their OLEDS. The quatum dot display just makes the picture over saturated and highlights the color instead of making it look natural. Triluminous and nano cell are the way to go.

    LG’s OS is garbage. And it’s a hell of a lot more expensive.

    Im sorry but I think you have confused LG and Samsung, Samsung’s OS is garbage*. To add to that LG TVs tend to have a lower price and be higher quality.

    Lg C9 is the best tv on the market. Sony oled is nice but lg is second to none.

    Sony have “Triluminos” which has been around for years before “QLED”. Triluminos is the same as QLED. I would take a Sony X85G over a Samsung Q60 or Q75 any day.

    Samsung should retire some of its old panel production TV’s and focus more on QLED TV especially in 4K
