The share of smaller size TV is increasing, with 32”-42” displays making up approximately half of the total shipments during the quarter. Although LED displays remain the preferred choice, advanced technology displays such as OLED and QLED are gaining ground. More models are being launched with QLED displays. Dolby Audio and better speakers are other features that are increasingly being provided by brands.

On the market trends, Research Analyst Akash Jatwala said, “Dolby Audio is becoming popular. Most of the new TV models have Dolby Audio support. 32” is still the most popular screen size, as it caters to a wide array of consumers and comes with an affordable price range, whereas 43” is gaining popularity in the mid-range. On the software side, newer models are increasingly coming with Google TV, mainly in the >INR 25,000 ($300) segment. The major benefit of Google TV is its user interface and content recommendations, as it can recommend content across various streaming apps, and YouTube, which is not available on Android TV.”

On the smart TV shipments by brand origin, Jatwala said, “Global brands lead the market with a 40% share, followed by Chinese brands with a 38% share. The share of Indian brands doubled in Q3 2022 to reach 22% of the overall shipments. Many new Indian brands are entering the highly competitive market.”

Looking at the brands’ growth, Senior Research Analyst Anshika Jain said, “OnePlus, Vu and TCL were the fastest growing brands in the smart TV segment in Q3 2022. Xiaomi led the overall smart TV market with an 11% share, followed by Samsung. LG once again secured the third spot due to the introduction of new models, especially in the INR 20,000-INR 30,000 ($250 – $400) price range. Other emerging brands in the top 10 included realme, Sony and Haier.”

Smart TV penetration of overall shipments reached its highest ever share of 93% during the quarter. The penetration is expected to go up further due to more launches in the sub-INR 20,000 ($250) price range. Online channels increased their contribution to the total shipments to 35% during the quarter. Major online platforms offered various promotions and discounts, along with exclusive launches, during the recent festive season sales.
