Connected TV Seen Growing Worldwide
Global penetration of connected TVs, currently placed at 25 percent of all flat panel TVs, will reach just under 50 percent by 2015, according to numbers released Tuesday by DisplaySearch.
By 2015, annual shipments of connected TVs will reach 138 million by 2015, with total connected TV sales by then reaching 500 million.
“The adoption of connected TV is not just taking place in developed regions,” Paul Gray, DisplaySearch Director of TV Electronics Research, said as part of the announcement. “Emerging markets often have good broadband services, and there is a thirst from consumers to get the best content available.”
