This year’s TV shipments have declined because of the pent-ups caused by Corona 19 (the phenomenon of suppressing consumption), which is due to the influence of consumer sentiment due to inflation and high interest rates. As the raw material costs, logistics costs, and exchange rates continue to be raised this year, the profitability of TV manufacturers is expected to deteriorate.
LG Electronics said in the second quarter’s earnings conference call in the late July, The TV business has been a good performance due to the increase in demand over the past two years since Corona, but the demand is expected to decrease by next year due to the end of the fan-decipal and the global economic crisis. There is a bar.
Omdia lowered its global TV shipments forecast this year, down 2,879 million units from 2,163 million units in March. This is a decrease of 4.47 million units compared to last year’s annual shipments. If Omdia’s outlook is right, this year’s TV shipments will be the lowest shipments in 12 years since 2010 (210 million units).
