Both companies are looking for increases. Samsung says sales increase will be five fold.
More and more TVs are being made with 3D built right in, which means companies should see an increase in sales this year. LG and Samsung are banking on more than just the fact that almost all high-end TVs are 3D TVs.
Last year, Samsung sold 2 million 3D television sets. In 2011, the company expects to sell around 10 million. Sales that high would certainly help to confirm the public acceptance of the 3D viewing experience.
Though LG is going down a different branch technology-wise, they're in agreement with Samsung about sales. Though the company hasn't disclosed its 3D sales figures for last year, LG is expecting to move 5 million 3D televisions this year.
