Thumbs up Plasma TV Sales Up In First Half of 2009

Quote:
Large LCD sales are in a slump, says Quixel research, while plasma seems to be enjoying a surge!

According to a report put out by Quixel Research, plasma sales are up significantly in the second quarter of 2009. Up 31% overall, the report mentions specifically the 42” 720p displays, a 40% surge over the previous quarter.

Don't know where hidef digest got those numbers.

From numbers from DisplaySearch:

Second Quarter sales were 3,066,000 down 10% from year earlier
see: http://www.digitalhome.ca/content/view/3961/283/

First Quarter sales wer 2,792,000 up 1% from year earlier
see: http://www.digitalhome.ca/content/view/3726/283/

So how did they come up with a 31% increase?

Yes, for those people who didn't read the link in the link, here's a quote:

Quote:
Q2 2009 the Plasma TV category was the only large screen TV category to show significant growth quarter-to-quarter. The well received quarterly report, which tracks and forecasts screen sizes 40” and above for the LCD, Plasma and Microdisplay Rear Projection categories, finds that in Q2 2009, Plasma TV sales were up 31% in volume and 35% in value when compared to Q1 2009 sales
I'll change the title of this thread to correct the misconception created by the original thread title.

Hugh,

The figures from Quixel are for the US only. Your article shows global TV sales. Plus Quixel only counts large TVs (40 inches and up). Can't compare the two sets of figures.

MikeRo,

Subject is: Plasma TV Sales Up In First Half of 2009

The hidefdigest title is totally wrong since it wasn't first half and it was only the U.S.

I guess they figure nothing happens outside the U.S.!

Yep - US only, 40 inch plus sets only and voila! You can scream Plasma TV Sales Up 31%. I'm surprised they didn't just count sales between 3 and 4 pm on Tuesdays - headline could then be Plasma TV Sales Up 91%!

I don't see anything misleading here. Of course, the data will be for the 40'' plus segment, when have you last seen plasma smaller than 40''?
