As of 2008, Samsung have outsold every other television brands for the past nine quarters consecutively. And in the third quarter of 2009, Samsung had a 23 percent market share of the television market. This huge numbers only say one thing, televisions manufactured by Samsung are superb and consumers want them.
Samsung was a company that did not initially manufacture television sets. It was only in the early 70s, when European and American manufacturers shared their technology to the company for the rights to sell TVs in Korea, did Samsung look closely at the market and decided to launch their own TV. Samsung designed their first TV, a black and white set, in 1970 and produced it in 1972 for domestic sale, by 1976, there were one million black and white Samsung televisions produced. Barely two years after, that number increased to 4 million, the most that any manufacturer produced. 1977 was the year Samsung decided to manufacture colour TV sets and at the same time, inspired by their domestic success, market their TV products all over Asia. By 1981, Samsung televisions were selling rapidly, 10 million black and white sets and 1 million collared units produced.
From then on, Samsung has become a household name worldwide, not only for their TVs, but also for their other electronic products, and this is because of their various innovative advancements in their products. For example, in 1995, the first 33 inch double screen TV was introduced, and it was one of the Samsung televisions. Also, earlier during that period, Samsung, which collaborated with Sony in creating Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screens, developed the largest LCD screens for a TV at 30 inches, which comparably today is minuscule but was a revolutionary feature then. From 1998, Samsung continued to be at the forefront in sales and TV development. That same year came the introduction of flat screen Samsung television and the first line of digital television sets in the planet. Other noteworthy and remarkable developments from Samsung include the release of the thinnest TV in 2002, and in 2006, the first LCD screen that was double-sided. samsung au7700
