David Watkins, Service Director, Connected Home Devices commented: "We are now witnessing the first major wave of Flat Panel TV replacement particularly in developed markets such as Western Europe and North America. Early adopters of the technology are seeking out upgrades to their aging sets driven by a desire for a larger screen, high quality pictures and new, thinner set designs".

Eric Smith, Analyst, Connected Home Devices said: "Moving forwards the TV industry will become less reliant on consumers purchasing additional sets for their homes as alternative TV viewing devices such as tablets will increasingly impact on demand for small screen TVs that would be destined for use in a bedroom or kitchen. Replacement demand for the main living room TV set will become the major driver of TV sales over the next 5 years".
