8K TVs Will Be In 56 Million Homes Worldwide By 2025, Says Strategy Analytics

MILTON KEYNES, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 2, 2019--8K TVs are set to achieve modest success over the next few years, according to the latest research from Strategy Analytics’Connected Home Devicesservice. The report will be published to coincide with this month’sNAB Showin Las Vegas, where 8K, which offers four times the resolution of today’s 4K standards, will be one of the dominant themes. Strategy Analytics’ consumer technology adoption models predict that 56 million homes worldwide will own an 8K TV by the end of 2025. The US will be the most successful market, with 8% of households owning an 8K TV by this time. 8K TVs have only been introduced in recent months, and the research finds that global sales in 2019 will reach 0.5 million units. Compared to the US, where super-large displays have long been accepted, 8K TV will struggle in most other regions. The report concludes that 8K TV will be good for TV vendors, but less meaningful for the content industry.

well i guess, but i dunno. the industry is still recovering from the bi-jillions it cost to make the change to digital. now it will cost bi-jillions again to do 4k/8k. i think it just another dupe tying to force feed us something.
its bad enough we need to buy a new tv every 2 yrs. do you think the industry is interested in spending bi-jillions again at this time on 4k/8k?

Hopefully the trade war will be over by then. I'm not sure I will be able to afford the tariffs on an 8K in 2025.

On 4K yes . . . but not on 8K. Yes they are shooting with 8K cameras but only for the ability to down-sample to 4K/2K and for recomposing shots.

4k by itself is a non-seller. It was only after the addition of HDR and WCG did the industry begin to embrace 4K because viewing distance does not affect HDR/WCG like it does resolution.

8K TVs can and will be used to upconvert 4K content . . . for those who will sit in the proper seating distance, which for the average TV watcher is too close.

i see where you are going with this. I remember the talk way back about the resolution lines could still be seen on a 1080 in the bigger screens. I think it was a play. I didnt see anything wrong with a 1080 in the larger screens. I'm still not interested in 4k at this time. When my last name brand 1080 TV broke down at 2yrs and 2months in January 2019 I tried a 4k. I took it back for a 1080. The 1080 is much better. Even 720 is better on a 1080 than a 4k. Sorry Lee. I listened to all the talk and did my own trials. I'm not buying a 4k.

Eventually Chuck you will because 4KTVs will be the only large size displays (55 to 65 inches) in the very near future. No more large screen HDTVs. Called "economies of scale."

Well it looks like we are being force fed. There is little or not that much HD stuff for 4k. Most stuff is still 480/720/1080. It don't make sense to get a 4k. The 1080 was better for what is out there. Why cant makers still produce 1080 if we want? They are cheaper to make.

No profit in selling HDTVs. LOL - not much either for 4KTVs in the 55 to 65" range. That's why we are seeing 75" now.

yes there is profit. new tv every 2 years, slave labor and automated robot assembly line.
robots work 24/7, no breaks, no sick or vacation pay, no medical, no retirement, no workmans comp, no pay and goes on.
just need a technician in the house to maintain and fix the robot assembly line if it breaks down.

Chuck - you seem to have an agenda. You are ignoring that photo I just posted. How much do you think the TV manufacturer makes on that $190 50" HDTV?

well, yeah ok, in a way i have an agenda.
1) i dont like being force fed a 4k. I like my 1080.
2) That's the only TV at a super low price. I think i saw that TV way back for $299. The price will probably go back up later. All the other TVs i saw on the site are the same or more than other stores. That's what some retail giants do. They undercut everybody in some things and maybe take a loss to get you in the store to bring in business. Lee, it's a marketing strategy. The economy is not good and its the off season.

ive been here awhile. this is the only thing i am complaining about. i like my 1080.
