What is expected in the industry in 2022? Are new technologies coming? Can we expect competition to intensify? Who will be the big ones?
Does development stop?
The television market is huge, with roughly 230-240 million units sold annually, valued at approximately $ 250 billion. This is already visible from a distance, it’s a pretty big amount, it’s no wonder that a lot of characters are trying to bite a bite out of the cake.
Development and improvement are key to achieving success, because whoever lags behind is left out … So we can be sure that manufacturers are working hard on fresh solutions and technologies at all times, and it is one hundred percent that in 2022 we will find serious with novelties and there will be changes in the arena. In addition to information from an authentic source, rumors are already circulating, and in this article we are trying to find out what is expected on the television front in 2022.
It has been known for some time now that the Samsung group wants to exit the production of LCD TV panels, and if all is true, it will finally happen in 2022. This concludes a very long process, as the company has been an unavoidable player in this field for almost two decades. The reason is pros, the money is in the background – the South Korean holding can no longer and does not want to compete with emerging players, in particular Chinese and Indian companies, which are pushing down prices sharply. The latter are pushing particularly violently in this sector, thanks to the fact that the country has terribly cheap labor and the state is also giving them very serious support.
Samsung takes things so seriously that it has already announced its LCD production lines, which are exactly what these Chinese and Indian companies are competing for. The other big South Korean giant, LG, is still holding on, and they will be making liquid crystal panels for televisions for some time to come. Moreover, according to the news, the big rival Samsung will also buy panels from them next year, in greater numbers than ever before, which logically means that we will have more Samsung TVs with IPS displays than ever before on store shelves.
The first versions of smart systems for televisions appeared about 15 years ago, and now such solutions are widespread. We’re slowly getting there that you can’t even buy a television that isn’t smart – or at least called smart. We do not expect much change in this area, as Google, which has partnered with several large companies (Philips, TCL, Sony, Xiaomi, etc.), launched its new system called Google TV this year, and LG also launched the webOS platform in 2021. with a carefully redesigned variant, so these companies are unlikely to prepare for revolutionary action in this area.
All indications are that Samsung is happy with its own Tizen system and Hisense is developing its own VIDAA platform in full steam, trying to eliminate bugs and reduce its disadvantage. It doesn’t seem likely that they’re going to throw up something huge about these in the background. Next to them, Panasonic is the one who has an in-house system, but it looks like they don’t want to hammer it over anymore, and they’re even winking at Google. Nor would it be very surprising if they completely let go of the Firefox-based system called MyHomeScreen, which they had previously favored, next year and switched to Android TV or Google TV on all models instead.
It’s worth going back to LG for another two sentences, which surprised everyone this fall with a new, alternative smart TV platform: the River OS, which hasn’t been heard much since. Or we have to mention Roku, who promised a lot to start the European conquest a few years ago, but it hasn’t happened much so far, so we can’t wait for Roku-based TVs to appear in Hungary in 2022.
What is certain, however, is that we will meet with new developments in services. Obviously, the main thrust is cloud-based content delivery and entertainment, so we can expect even more supported streaming and gaming services. At the same time, the role of traditional television is diminishing, but it has been a trend for years.
