Global television unit shipments

Television unit shipments had been decreasing for several years before seeing an upswing in 2018. Shipment and sales numbers are usually at their lowest during the first half of the year before the winter holiday season sparks consumer interest in and spending on electronic devices. In 2019, the sales volume of TV sets was forecast to reach 226 million units globally.

Samsung Electronics continues to dominate the TV market

Samsung has been the leading manufacturer and vendor of TV units worldwide for over a decade. The South Korean company generated over 218 billion U.S. dollars in revenue in 2018, making it one of the most valuable technology brands worldwide (#267966). Despite its decreasing figures in recent years, Samsung has remained the top vendor of LCD TV unit shipments worldwide, with over 41.3 million units sold in 2019 alone.
