Plasma TV Sales Up In First Half of 2009

Large LCD sales are in a slump, says Quixel research, while plasma seems to be enjoying a surge!

According to a report put out by Quixel Research, plasma sales are up significantly in the second quarter of 2009. Up 31% overall, the report mentions specifically the 42” 720p displays, a 40% surge over the previous quarter.

The report attributes this to the continually tough economic state, though that doesn’t seem to account for the sudden rise. Interestingly, the same could not be said about LCD televisions. While smaller models still did well, there was a decrease in sales of larger TVs.

Just what this means is yet to be determined, but if numbers like this keep showing up, we can certainly expect a few more competitors in the surprisingly growing market.
