Shipments of 8K televisions

The shipments of 8K televisions are expected to reach close to the one million mark within five years. HIS Technology, recently, said that about 2,700 8K TVs are expected to come into the global market this year but the number would increase to 911,000 units by 2019. Once trial broadcasting of Japan starts in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, demand for these TVs would surge.

The research firm predicted that the fate of the 8K TV market would entirely hinge on how much the large screen TV market would grow. TV resolution has evolved from HD with 1,366×768 resolution, to FHD with 1,920×1, 080, UHD with 3,840×2, 160, and 8K with 7,680x 4,320.

DisplaySearch forecasts that 8K display panels will be introduced in the industry in full swing in 2018. Resolution grades typically have six-year cycles with HD from 2000 to 2006, FHD from 2006 to 2012, UHD from 2012 to 2018 and 8K starting from 2018. Thanks to the beginning of the era of 8K TVs, Korea’s display panel makers, including Samsung display and LG display, with strength in large screen production, would see new opportunities in a fresh market.
