Japan’s domestic TV shipments rebounded in September, an annual increase of 5% over 370,000 units | Anue Juheng – Eurasian Shares


Japan Electronics and Information Technology Industries Association (JEITA) announced on Friday (21st) that Japan’s domestic thin-film TV shipments in September increased 5.2% to 373,000 units, surpassing the same period last year again after a lapse of two months. Shipments of thin-film TVs over 50 inches, which accounted for the bulk, increased 14.7% year-on-year to 153,000 units, and shipments of 30- to 39-inch TVs increased 6.5% year-on-year to 68,000 units.

Since July this year, the decline in TV supply due to the closure of Shanghai, China, has improved, supporting shipments. In terms of size, TVs over 50 inches are very popular, accounting for more than 40% of the overall shipment ratio in September.

Consumers in Japan have an increasing demand for enjoying video streaming over the Internet on large-size TVs at home. According to JEITA, shipments of large models over 70 inches are also quite good.

TV sales of various manufacturers focus on large-size, high-definition models, and the prices of brand-new models generally rise.

In September, Japan’s domestic imaging machine shipments increased by 7% year-on-year to 48.4 billion yen (about NT$10.3 billion), which was better than the same period last year for three consecutive months.

Looking forward to the number of units shipped in the future, it is expected that the same period last year will be flat. JEITA said that although the supply situation has improved, consumers are tightening their wallets due to the rising price of TV sets caused by the depreciation of the yen and soaring raw materials. In addition, the loosening of epidemic prevention regulations related to the new crown pneumonia epidemic has led to an increase in Japanese consumers’ consumption in tourism, while consumption related to household appliances is suspected of shrinking.
