There’s inflationary pressures and the cost of living going on everywhere, but one of the (relatively) bright spots for this has been the affordable TV prices – given that LCD prices continue to fall, and the possibility of very cheap TVs finally coming up this year means people trying to keep their budgets low. They may still be able to get a great new 4K TV within their price range if they need it.
However, that could turn against one part of the market, it seems. Report in Digitimes (Opens in a new tab) He says Chinese LCD manufacturers (which account for a large part of the market, though they certainly don’t have a monopoly) are looking to raise prices for 32-inch TV panels next year.
The best 32-inch TVs are popular not only in bedrooms and offices, but also students, young adults with small living spaces, and seniors who may also have limited space, but may not be comfortable with a larger screen either. Televisions that are geared towards the industry by most people these days.
In the case of both the young and the elderly, we’re talking about those who are most likely to have inflexible incomes — fixed pensions, or the generally inadequate wages so many teens and young adults receive these days.
So the potential price hike for these people’s most useful little TVs will come as a blow, just as they’re also being bitten by higher winter energy bills.
This means that anyone thinking about this type of TV in the future might want to look hard at the Black Friday TV deals (and the sales season around) this year, because if Digitimes’ report is correct, new models released in 2023 could start rising the prices.
TV deals likely won’t be limited to Black Friday, though – according to statistics from Adobe, the largest average TV discounts were found in early December last year, although the average discount on Black Friday itself was Almost very large. It just means that if you can’t find anything in Black Friday deals, it’s not the end; You may still find it soon after.
