Samsung is Number One in Revenue - Vizio Leads in Units Sold

A new report from DisplaySearch reveals some interesting statistics about the current worldwide market.

There's no question about the success of Samsung in the worldwide marketplace. The most recent study from DisplaySearch puts the company in a strong lead for the number one spot.

DisplaySearch says that Samsung owns a cool 21.4 percent share of global flat-panel TV revenues. That means a fifth of the money that's spent on LCDs and plasmas is going to Samsung. It's absolutely huge, especially considering that second-place Sony sits around seven percent lower.

That's not to say Sony wasn't successful. Sony lead the 3D LCD category while Panasonic dominated 3D plasmas. Interestingly enough, when considering 3D as a whole the lead goes back to Samsung.

One statistic of note is that Vizio doesn't make the top five list when it comes to revenue. They're still leading on the basis of volume in the US, just not in terms of money coming in.
