New research highlights rapid growth of 4K TV sales, cord-cutting households

Park Associates, the market research and consulting company, this week released two pieces of research highlighting the continued growth of 4K TV sales and the percentage of U.S. households cutting the cord.

In Connected CE: Trends and Innovation, Parks Associates predicts that 330 million 4K UHD TVs will be sold globally by the end of 2019; compare this to two million such TVs sold by the end of 2013.

56 per cent of U.S. households that plan on purchasing a TV in 2015 think that 4K is an important feature while 44 per cent felt that the price was too high or that the picture quality was not worth the investment.

“In addition to 4K, picture technologies such as high dynamic range (HDR) and wide color gamut (WCG) are being introduced to the market,” said Barbara Kraus, Director of Research, Parks Associates. “The combination of these picture technologies will produce more saturated colors, more dynamic images, and pictures that look more lifelike.”
