Despite fears that the market would suffer due the financial crisis, it seems that global sales of new televisions have increased.
During 2009 the figures released were showing just a small two per cent increase, but the figure recently released by Display Search shows that shipments of new televisions jumped by fifteen per cent to around 242 million.
Naturally, this is an overall figure, but out of those around thirty per cent were LCD HD televisions.
Sales of plasma and CRT televisions also grew, helped by electrical manufacturers revamping the designs of the televisions to make them more up to date, despite the technology being called dated.
It is China and Japan that lead the way in sales, with China showing a 35 per cent year on year increase and Japan topping that slightly at 36 per cent.
