LG, Samsung lead premium TV markets

25 Jun 2019 | Rasmus Larsen |

LG is leading the European market for premium TVs with its OLED TVs, while Samsung is leading the US market for premium TVs with large-size LCD TVs, according to IHS Markit and a report by Business Korea.

Korean dominance

The two Korean TV makers are dominating the market for premium TVs, according to analyst firm IHS Markit. Premium TVs are defined as displays costing more than $2500 US dollars.

In the first quarter of 2019, OLED TVs accounted for 65.1% of the European premium TV market. In the US, LCD TVs accounted for 63.8% of the premium TV market.

Data reveals that buyers in Europe prefer medium-size TVs, while buyers in the US prefer TVs 70 inches or larger. Prices on large-size LCD TVs have fallen considerably in recent years while 77-inch OLED TVs remain prohibitively expensive.

- "In Europe, OLED TVs are gaining popularity thanks to consumers’ relatively fast acceptance of new technology and preferences for medium-sized TVs," an industry analyst told Business Korea. "In the U.S., the majority of homes are large, so consumers usually choose LCD TVs 70 inches or bigger."

In the global TV market Samsung remains the leader with a market share of 29.4%. LG comes second with a 16.5% share.
