TCL, the second-largest Chinese manufacturer in the world in terms of TV shipments, has entered the Japanese market in earnest. There is a possibility that Chinese manufacturers will enter the market one after another, and the presence may increase.
TCL announced that a 65-inch 4K-compatible TV, which will be released in October, explains that bright colors can be expressed by using fine particles called “quantum dots” in the backlight that shines the liquid crystal. The
The estimated price is around 200,000 yen, which is cheaper than Japanese manufacturers.
Next month, we plan to sell 6 models from 43 inches to 65 inches for 50,000 to 120,000 yen.
The Japanese TV market is characterized by the popularity of consumers with Japanese manufacturers' brands, but this manufacturer wants to increase its name recognition by appealing to low-priced prices, especially among younger generations.
In the future, we will also sell 8K compatible products and want to gain a 2% share of domestic sales by next year.

China's Hisense has entered the domestic TV market in earnest, and there is a possibility that the presence of Chinese companies will increase in the severe sales competition.
