Plasma Sales Up 14 Percent In Q1 2010

If you are under the impression that the HDTV industry has little space for plasma displays these days, think again. According to a recent report generated by Quixel Research, plasma sales fared strongly in the US for the first quarter of 2010 with a 14 percent spike since Q1 last year. Ironically, LCD TV sales suffered a 24 percent decline since the last quarter of 2009. 

CE PRO - While dismissed by many as a technology on its last legs, plasma television 2010 first quarter (Q1) sales results once again proved the skeptics wrong, according to Quixel Research. The research firm's "Q1 2010 USA Large Area Display Report" indicates that unit sales of plasma TVs grew 14 percent from Q1 2009 to Q1 2010, and this growth amounts to a volume increase greater than the LCD TV 40-inch plus category for the same time period.

While these figures are only applicable to the US market, we are positive this little news nugget should bring a smile to PDP makers all round the globe. Click here for more.
