4K UHD TVs expected to become ubiquitous in China by year-end

August 02, 2019


Abstract : 4K UHD TVs are expected to become ubiquitous in China by the end of this year, with total consumption estimated to account for more than 80 percent of domestic sales of color TVs, according to a report recently released by China Electronics Chamber of Commerce.

BEIJING, Aug. 2 (Xinhua) -- 4K ultra-high definition (UHD) TVs are expected to become ubiquitous in China by the end of this year, with total consumption estimated to account for more than 80 percent of domestic sales of color TVs, according to a report on China's color TV consumption in the first half of this year recently released by China Electronics Chamber of Commerce.

About 70 percent of the 22 million units of color TVs sold in China in the first six months were 4K UHD TVs, the report said.

Currently, 4K video programs are available for domestic consumers via radio and television networks as well as telecommunication networks. For example, a 4K variety channel is offered in south China's Guangdong province. 4K videos are also provided on-demand at the networks of such brands as Hisense, Changhong, Haier, Sony, LG, TCL, Skyworth, and Philips.

Additional nine or ten 4K channels are expected to be launched next year by Chinese provinces and cities.

In terms of products, laser TVs, quantum dot TVs, OLED TVs and other high-end color TVs with 4K/8K UHD large screens have come out in the market to redefine visual experience.

TCL, Sony, Samsung among other TV makers have unveiled their 8K UHD TVs since the beginning of this year. China's 8K TV market is still in its infancy. Domestic consumption of 8K color TVs this year is estimated to stand at about 60,000 sets, according to the report.

Meanwhile, driven by brands like Hisense and Changhong, the market of laser TVs with large screen is growing rapidly, and the sales of such TVs is expected to reach 200,000 units in 2019.

With improvement of network infrastructure and the universal application of artificial intelligence, smart home products are emerging in waves. Data showed that China's smart home market is expanding at an annual rate of 20 percent.
