Samsung & LG Still on Top

A report from industry tracker Displaybank indicates that the Koreans still dominate the flat panel TV market. For worldwide unit shipments in 2010, Samsung accounted for 19% of all flat panel TVs, and LG provided another 13%. That means that nearly one out of three flat panel TVs are made by one of these two companies.

Note that these numbers are for the completed sets, not just the flat panels that they contain. Sony was in third place with an 11% share of the total market, but the company outsources at least half of the panel production to other companies. And Sharp was in sixth place, according to Displaybank, with just a 7% unit share worldwide, but their panels appear in sets produced by other companies.
