Samsung retained its top spot as the number one TV brand based on online sales this year, after growing 6-points in market share year over year. Vizio remained in second place, despite a 5-point loss in market share, while LG, Sony and TCL experienced similar gains. TCL holds some of the top spots when it comes to most popular items, which is contributing to their relative market share growth and Vizio’s decline.
The online TV market is growing with sales peaking during the holiday season (November/December). Samsung holds the top spot and, along with LG, is likely benefitting from integrating their smart TVs with their other smart/connected home products. However, brands with more affordable models, like Sceptre, TCL and RCA are increasing in demand. It will be interesting to see how TV sales break down online this November and what kind of deals brands and retailers will promote to drive sales. I know I’m personally interested in what offers retailers will have on 4K models.
