US 8K TV Shipments to Rise Strongly – Our Comments
According to the US-based Consumer Technologies Association (CTA) quoted by HDGuru.com the market for 8K TVs in the US will rise strongly to 160,000 units in 2022, up 70% from 2021. That is in contrast to an overall drop of about 0.2% in revenue terms for the whole market consumer technology market (down $1 billion to $503 billion).
The CTA also forecast that sales will reach 479,000 in 2023. There have been some negative comments in the press recently about 8K prospects, but a market with 299% growth in one year seems very positive.
