The report also forecasts that, in 2022, global shipments of TVs over 70-inches will reach approximately 14.9 million units, increasing to nearly 17.1 million units next year. With its widening portfolio of large and ultra-large screen OLED TVs, LG is well positioned to continue its dominance of the premium TV segment in Europe, and worldwide.
