Half a million 8K TV panels will be shipped in 2020

Half a million 8K TV panels will be shipped in 2020Digitimes cites a survey from Sigmaintell Consulting, according to which, half a million 8K TV panels will be shipped in 2020. The wider adoption of 8K panels is limited mainly by their prices because they are twice as high as those of 4K panels. If the price gap narrows down to 1.3 times, then a wider penetration will be expected. Currently, Samsung, AUO, Sharp and BOE have announced 8K panels, and China Star Optoelectronics Technology (CSOT) will join them next year. 8K TV panels are used for large-size TVs - from 65-inch to over 100-inch sizes. It is expected, that next year the 65-inch and 75-inch size classes will contribute to 60-70% of the total 8K panel shipments in 2020. For 2022, the penetration rate is projected to increase to 2% or 5 million units.Source
