Ultra-high definition sets on the rise

With the rapid pace at which technology progresses, modern TV sets now come with a variety of different features such as 3D capabilities and Wi Fi connectivity. However, the TV feature that has seen the most noticeable uptake in recent years is 4K/UHD. In 2016, these TV’s had an estimated two million users in France, but within two years this had increased to more than four million.
4K/UHD TV unit sales have been increasing worldwide, rising from 10.2 million in 2014, to more than 90 million by 2018. Estimates show this trend is set to continue.
