Smart TV Market Analysis The Smart TV Market size is estimated at USD 275.69 billion in 2024, and is expected to reach USD 307.22 billion by 2029, growing at a CAGR of 2.19% during the forecast period (2024-2029)

With the preliminaries of the fourth industry generation, connected TV manufacturers are competing for the latest innovations in the user interface, content aggregation, and application development, such as smart TVs that come with an operating system that can run apps and widgets and stream videos and music. Set with unified internet capabilities, smart TVs offer numerous advanced computing abilities and connectivity. Smart TVs’ current capabilities allow consumers to search, chat, browse, share, update, and download content. Manufacturers of smart TVs are expected to focus on experience design over the next five years.
The availability of content that is ready for consumers to consume on their smart TVs has been critical in the demand surge. Countries like India and China have a considerable consumer base at low- and middle-income levels. Price optimization has offered a range of opportunities for TV manufacturers in small to mid-high price ranges. Streaming media such as Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Google Chromecast are changing the consumers’ viewing experience. Several manufacturers are teaming up with OTT (over-the-top) content and device providers to offer various features with no requirement of a set-top box. For instance, TCL Corporation collaborated with Roku Inc. and introduced a 4K HDR Roku TV. Smart TVs have made it possible for users to run applications developed earlier for smartphones.
The 4K UHD segment is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period. The drop in the prices of these TVs is drawing customers and triggering demand across emerging economies. The increase can be associated with innovative features, such as high resolution and high picture quality, with Dolby Digital sound that provides a theater experience on larger screen sizes. The adoption of innovative technologies, such as quantum dot LEDs (QLEDs), across the ultra-high-definition (UHD) in 4K TVs, is expected to fuel the segment’s demand during the forecast period. Televisions belonging to this range have high penetration rates when compared to others. 4K TVs also pack in screen technology, such as high dynamic range (HDR) and wide color gamut (WCG).
In recent years, the Central Intelligence Agency developed some of the significant security vulnerabilities targeting smart TVs, which were stolen. Some of the popular smart TV manufacturers, such as LG and Samsung, collect tons of information about what users are watching, help advertisers better target ads against their viewers, and suggest what to watch next. The FBI recommends placing black tape over an unused smart TV camera, keeping smart TV up-to-date with updated patches and fixes, and reading the privacy policy to understand better what the smart TV is capable of.
The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically impacted the lifestyles and routines of all consumers. Shelter-in-place orders and work-at-home mandates have driven in-home video consumption to unprecedented levels, with the video streaming platforms, such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, registering a spike in viewership worldwide. A strong focus on online content delivery and the gradual ease of COVID restrictions are anticipated to help widen the customer base, thereby contributing to the market’s growth.
However, in terms of supply, the market is negatively affected due to the closing of borders, which is affecting the supply chain. For instance, TCL’s panel manufacturing subsidiary, CSOT, has its facility in Wuhan, which was the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak. Thus, TCL struggled to run the panel manufacturing facility. However, according to Avi Cloud’s Global TV Brand Shipment Monthly Data Report-2021 (AVC), TCL, a Chinese electronics business, saw a spike in sales, with 11.1 million devices shipped in the first half of 2021. Samsung led the market with an expected shipment of 20.8 million units, up by 11.9% Y-o-Y. Source: h
