InformationWeek: LCD TVs Becoming Market Champion (DUH!)

The LCD TV is becoming the undisputable champ in the television market, gradually pushing other technologies to the sidelines, a market research firm says.

The major factors behind the rising star is price, coupled with the fact that LCD TVs are perceived by consumers as better at handling digital TV, iSuppli said in a recent report. LCD TV manufacturers are also feeding consumers' desire for large TV screens.
I thought LCD TVs were better at handling digital HDTV... OOPS.

Quote:
Samsung Electronics in the first quarter of this year held on to the top spot among global TV brands, accounting for 11.6% of worldwide shipments, iSuppli said. The remaining top five included LG Electronics, with a 10.7% share; TCL, 8%; Philips, 7.4%; and Sony, 5.3%.

Samsung is holding on to top spot by maintaining its lead in flat-panel LCD TV shipments, while sending a large number of the CRT TVs, an older technology, to developing nations, iSuppli analyst Riddhi Patel said.

Global shipments of TV units rose to 45.9 million in the first quarter, 7% higher than the same period last year, iSuppli said. Shipments of TVs using liquid crystal displays or plasma screens rose by 90% and 41%, respectively, in the quarter.

CRT TVs are still the largest market worldwide, but dominance is expected to slip away in time as LCD and plasma manufacturers continue to push out cheaper offerings, iSuppli said. However, rear-projection TVs, an alternative to the flat-panel LCD and plasma sets, is expected to stay alive through new innovations.
I didn't realize CRTs are still the worlds largest market. I would assume size alone make them more expensive to ship than LCDs. To me the fact that CRTs still dominate the market indicates prices on current and future LCDs should continue to drop.

Quote:
Those include new lighting technologies, such as electrode-less lamps, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and by next year, lasers. All three improve lamp lifetime and image quality of rear-projection systems. Other innovations include technology called liquid crystal on silicon (LCOS), which Sony is pushing in 50-inch or larger sets.

Nevertheless, LCD TVs are expected to eventually dominate the market, as prices for large screens decline, iSuppli said.
OLED... I can't wait for this tech to go mainstream and affordable. 1,000,000:1 contrast FTW.

Well of course CRT is dominating...think of it this way....only a few countries can afford to have a TV that costs as much as a small car...lol.

Oh, and not to mention even within the rich countries, how many people have them? I'm the only one in my entire family to have a bigscreen HDTV...or...HDTV at all, actually...(wait no...my aunt in hawaii does...she has a plasma)

When OLED comes out though...we're gonna see some people splurging...OLED looks AMAZING!

I'm not surprised by CRT's market share, but thatll all change soon. Go into any electronics store what do you see the most of? CRTs or flat panels?

CRT > LCD

doesn't matter how advanced the tech gets, cathode ray tubes will still be the best way to produce stunning visuals that LCD's really cannot match. People don't understand color depth and really great res's and just get the better looking, thinner, smaller, newer LCD"s

lol at them.

...

Alrighty then.

OLED is gonna dominate. Our HDTV is CRT, but it's one of Samsung's Slimfit ones. Certainly thicker than an LCD, but nowhere hear as bad as a normal big CRT.

Cannot really match or can't match? And please. I'm not saying youre wrong, I'd just like to read about it. I don't know of any CRT's that are capable of full HD. If space/size/money/etc werent an issue, which would you rather pick? The top of the line CRT, or an LCD with FULL HD and a 15K:1 contrast ratio? The choice is clear.

My 54" 15000:1 Samsung LCD running at 1080P is superior to any CRT I've ever seen. It's stunning.

Time to lay CRT's to rest. Also, plasma. LCD's don't burn in.

That being said, my LCD takes a small nuclear reactor to power at full brightness. It's expensive to run. I'm looking forward to OLED just for power savings alone.

Yeah I was thinking of impoverished countries and assumed the majority of people wouldn't even waste their money on a TV.

Thats what I was thinking. It seems LCDs and Plasmas exceed the number of CRTs whenever I walk into an electronics store. Thats why this info kind of caught me a little by surprise. It would be interesting to find a global break down, I wonder if Japan is already predominantly LCD and Plasma?

You gotta remember..TVs are usually a one time purchase for most households. Maybe you'll replace 1 in your lifetime.

If millions of people already have perfectly good CRT TVs, and they meet their needs...they're not gonna go out and get LCD. It's the show off American lifestyle that makes us buy so many big TVs...and Japanese just like stuff small...so they like thin TVs...

Oh, and about the nuclear reactor to power an LCD panel...
Ever had a CRT? Dude...those things take a ridiculous amount of power to run....your LCD is using less power....for sure.

I must be doing something wrong then. I have bought 6 CRT's and I am 37. I currently have a 32" and a 21", and don't plan on replacing them till I have to. The 25" I had before the 32" I had for about 7 years before it completly died (had to have the PIP disabled to make it work for another 3 years).
I would say an average CRT is probably 7-10 year lifespan.
