Vizio has been dethroned. Samsung is the new number 1 LCD-TV maker in the US market. Sharp has also taken a huge share of the large-size TV segment, according to the latest market analysis from IHS.<br /><br /><h3>Samsung rises to no 1. TV maker in USA</h3>Throughout 2011, Samsung, LG, Toshiba and Sharp have all seen healthy growth of TV sales in the US market. Vizio has experienced a steep 44 % decline in TV sales in 2011, according to analyst firm IHS (former iSuppli). Sony also saw a 20.7 % decline in sales.<br /><br /><p align=center><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/lcdtv2011sales.jpg" alt="LCD-TV sales in USA"></p><br />Samsung became the number 1 TV maker in the US in 2011 and accounted for almost one-quarter of LCD-TV shipments – and Samsung is expected to further expand its lead in 2012. Not shown in the graph is Sharp’s market share. Sharp saw a 60 % year-to-year growth based on their decision to focus on large-size LCD-TVs above 60-inches. Sharp even introduced 70 and 80-inch TVs in 2011.<br /><br />- <i>”The recent Free Trade Agreement between the United States and South Korea will remove tariffs imposed on Korean firms selling TVs in America,”</i> Tom Morrod, analyst and head of TV Technology for IHS said. <br />- <i>“Because of this accord, Samsung and fellow South Korean brand LG Electronics are poised to increase their shipments in the United States this year.”</i><br /><br />IHS also notes that the average LCD-TV price dropped $16 to $1,032 in the fourth quarter of 2011.<br /><br />- <i>Source: <a href=http://www.isuppli.com/Display-Materials-and-Systems/News/Pages/Samsung-Widens-Lead-in-US-LCD-TV-Shipment-with-Record-High-Market-Share-in-Q4.aspx target=_blank>IHS</a></i>
