“The global TV market has plateaued, and what growth there is around the world comes from regions where the sizes are smaller, and the featuring not as rich. Global competition is brutal, and Chinese brands are making significant inroads into what were once safe harbors for the multinational legacy TV brands, able to compete more easily on price and cost. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t valuable opportunities, and some segments of the TV market still hold significant profit potential. This talk will highlight where the value lies in the TV market, which technologies are growing or at risk, and how companies can better position themselves to take advantage.” Bio:
