Key Market Trends

Television Segment is Expected to Have Significant Growth

  • With the help of advanced facilities, companies produce very large LCD sheets, called mother glass, from which TV display panels are cut. As a result, bigger TV panels can be produced with less waste, helping to drive down costs and consumer prices.
  • Moreover, according to Samsung, people have moved from 32 inches to 55 inches, as the average screen size now. This is a trend toward larger screen technologies, as the big bezels and backs that often came attached to the display itself have disappeared. Thus, people can fit large-screen TVs in the same amount of space, indicating that the average display size has quickly shot up.
  • Furthermore, 8K technology provides display video at 120 frames per second rather than the current 60 frames per second. Thus, sports networks are especially interested in this technology. By doubling the number of frames displayed each second, it can help reduce motion blur during fast-moving action.
  • The demand for 8K Ultra HDTV in the United States is increasing Y-o-Y. They are the early adopters of this technology. Thus, the above factors are expected to have a positive outlook in the 8K television market.
8K Market Key Trends

Asia Pacific to Witness the Fastest Growth

  • In the Asia-Pacific region, China and Japan dominate the 8K technology market. China is emerging as a leading consumer product manufacturing hub, with local players expanding their market share in all segments. Therefore, China is expected to witness high growth in the 8K technology market.
  • Japan introduced a broadcast channel dedicated to 8K content, and this gives an in-depth look at the complicated requirements. To enjoy 8K media, one may need an 8K TV, a dedicated satellite to receive the transmission, and in some cases, a replacement for boosters and distributor boxes. Additionally, Japan is pioneering this technology with plans to broadcast the 2020 Olympics in 8K.
  • Therefore, China and Japan are expected to be among the highest growth registering countries in the 8K technology market. Thus, these factors are expected to result in the Asia-Pacific region, witnessing the fastest CAGR among all other regions during the forecast period.
