Plasma TV's World

Plasma Sales Increase

Today’s uncertain economy might have you a bit stressed and holding onto your purse or wallet a bit tighter than in the past. The thought of buying higher end electronics may not be on your mind because you may think it to be too lavish a purchase. Despite the economic woes, people are still spending money on electronics and the steady rise of plasma television sales has proven this.

Why are Sales on the Rise?

Consumers seem to be buying plasma televisions more than in past years and that may be due to the technology involved in the newer models that have been showing up in stores. Feeling secure knowing that you are going to invest in sound technology that will last is probably the main reason people are willing to take the plunge and make that big purchase.

Lower pricing and more perks that is what the manufacturers of plasmas are offering in today’s market. When plasmas first hit the scene back in the late nineties, only the financially well off could afford these technological wonders. Prices were near a staggering $10,000 dollars! These days, manufacturers know that people can’t afford that luxury price and are accommodating the everyday person by lowering their prices but upping the technological perks. Plasma televisions are still not what you would call "cheap" but they are now reasonably priced to reach a broader target audience.

The most popular screen size that has significantly increased in sales is the 32-inch screen. Larger screens are still on the rise, but on average, people are going for the smaller screens due to the energy savings that come with it. Although, manufactures have jumped on the power-saving wagon with their larger screens as well, people aren’t being as lavish in those purchases. Fifty inch screens and larger have steadied in sales, most likely due to price and the amount of energy it uses. Consumers are looking to save a buck wherever they can, even in their everyday household electronics.

Demand for plasma televisions are on the rise despite the economy and according to a research report Panasonic is the number one seller of plasma televisions taking in a respectable 39.8% of plasma television sales. Samsung comes in at second place with a 29.4% increase in sales.

Why are Plasma Televisions Sought After?

Consumers want the best their money can buy and plasma televisions are a product that they can feel good about investing in. Lets face the truth, it is an investment, when you lay out that kind of money on a product, you want it to be top quality and last a long time to get your money’s worth.

Plasma television sales are all over the place and consumers don’t have to look far to get the best deals. You just have to know what you are looking for and search for the best possible price there is. You can find comparisons all over the Internet that can help you do just that so you can make an educated decision and feel good about your purchase.

Most consumers are looking for the biggest screen size, they want that theater experience and with a plasma television you will definitely get what you are looking for. Screen sizes can go all the way to 65 inches and there is even one in Japan that just debuted in September 2008 that is 103 inches. Now I know that is a bit excessive, but buying a larger screen can give you more for your money and a lovely viewing experience to boot.

Speaking of theater experiences, plasma television has the latest technology to give you just that. Plasmas have a high contrast capability that allows you to really see and experience those really dark scenes in movies, especially those horror flicks that some people love that lean towards darker scenes. The color and richness of plasma is stunning compared to traditional tube televisions so you will definitely get your money’s worth in that department as well.

Another reason sales of plasma televisions may be booming is the wide viewing capabilities plasma has built in. There’s nothing like being able to watch a movie from all angles of your room and not miss a single aspect on the screen like smaller sets do. Plus, most DVDs these days offer wide screen viewing that look amazing on plasma televisions.

So no matter the reasons consumers may have, plasma televisions are a must have and the manufactures know this for a fact. The manufactures are constantly working to make the next bigger and better plasma with new features and more advanced technology. The way the plasma market seems to be going you may not even want to go to the movie theatres any more, you could just stay home and enjoy your own home theater.
