Global TV shipments increased by 7.9 per cent to 50.6 million units in the first quarter of 2018 compared to a year ago, according to critical information, analytics and solutions provider IHS Markit. Liquid-crystal display (LCD) TV shipments rose 7.5 per cent to 50.1 million units and organic light-emitting diode (OLED) TV shipments jumped 115.8 per cent to about 470,000 units during the same period.


According to the latest TV Sets Market Tracker report by IHS Markit, LCD TV unit shipments declined 3.6 per cent in 2017. Average retail price hasn’t dropped as much as expected and that negatively impacted consumer demand in many regions. However, declines in LCD panel prices during late 2017 and early 2018 have led to better end-market pricing in the first quarter of 2018, and TV brands have increased shipments in advance of the 2018 World Cup for promotional activities in some key emerging market regions.

“Emerging markets like Latin America typically see strong seasonal response to the World Cup,” said Paul Gagnon, executive director at IHS Markit. “Particularly in Eastern Europe, with the World Cup taking place in Russia this summer, demand is expected to rise in the region.”

TV shipments in Latin America surged 40 per cent in the first quarter of 2018 compared to a year ago, with a significant increase in 50-inch and larger TV shipments. As a result, Latin America had the highest average selling price among emerging market regions, according to new regional TV pricing information available from IHS Markit by surveying more than 100 retailers across 34 different countries.

China had the lowest average selling price among the eight regions covered in the report at $446 (€387), despite having the largest average screen size at 47.3 inches. “Lower LCD panel prices are enabling more aggressive pricing competition among local brands in China,” Gagnon said. Western Europe has the highest average price at over $712 on a price-per-inch basis, with less severe pricing competition and the second highest 4K mix among the regions.
