This year at Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the world’s largest consumer technology trade show, consumers were not interested in to buy HDTV. The biggest difference of the sales figures of HDTV comparing to previous all CES and this CES. What is the reason of losing interest in buying HDTV? Is it the Quality or something else?
Each year, the trade show comes with bigger and innovative technologies that can attract people. 2012 was no exception. According to new research, this time at CES 2012, the sales figure of Television would go double comparing to previous year. With the space of more than 1.85 million net square feet, this year more than 3,100 companies participated and displayed over 20,000 products on the floor of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
It’s really impossible to predict which product would be sold much. But, sales of televisions can be predictable. Though having Lenovo’s Android 4.0 SmartTV, LG’s 55-inch 3D OLED TV and Samsung’s ES8000 LED SmartTV at CES 2012, consumers were not interested in buying these attractive TVs. Rather, this time consumers had interest to buy other entertainment devices and electronics such as Laptops, Desktops, Tablets and Smartphones. But, HDTVs were the central piece at this time’s CES.
But, a recent survey published by NPD DisplaySearch revealed a different picture. Actually, it’s assuming that, this year HDTV shipments with Larger Screens and Liquid Cristal Display (LCD) technology will grow high. But the fact is, everything depends on ‘Consumers Demand’ and ‘Situation’. No need to say, shipments doesn’t mean sales, rather sales depend on consumers demand.
As the market is now filled with some recent released TVs like LG’s LCD Bezels HDTV, New Home Theater Systems, World’s Largest 84-Inch 3D ‘Ultra Definition’ TV, ‘‘World’s Largest’ 55-Inch OLED HDTV Panel’,people should buy a new television. But, may be consumers couldn’t effort to buy TVs because of High Price. As Gadgets, Smart-phones or Laptops were cheap, people might have found interest in buying them.
