LG targets 7.5 million LED TV sales next yearLG Electronics hopes to boost sales of LED TVs from 400,000 this year to 7.5 million in 2010.

The technology, which is still relatively new in the UK, uses LED backlighting instead of the fluorescent lights used in traditional LCD televisions.

Elsewhere in the world, LG’s LED sets have already proved successful.

In Taiwan the company sold out its whole LED TV inventory in early Autumn.

The price difference between LED TVs and traditional LCD TVs is starting to narrow, which should help LG achieve its sales target.

LG still has a long way to go to catch up with Samsung, which expects to sell 1 million LED TVs this year and 10 million next year, but LG does have some impressive TVs on offer.

Earlier this month LG launched the ultra slim (2.9mm) SL9000 series, featuring its ‘SEAMLESS’ design, where a single sheet of glass covers the whole front area of the panel.

  2. The follower of Samsung, the biggest HDTV company from Asia and now they seem to be No.1 of the world’s market. But LG TV is still a good alternative choice for affordable price along with reasonable quality.
