Sales of digital televisions grew more than 100 percent during the first quarter of 2006, announced CEA President and CEO Gary Shapiro during his keynote Saturday at the 2006 PARA Management Conference. Shapiro addressed specialty audio-video dealers attending the conference held in Hilton Head, SC, May 3-7.
According to new figures released by the CEA, the industry sold 3.4 million DTV units during the first quarter of 2006, equaling a 101 percent increase in unit sales over the same time last year, and $3.6 billion in dollar sales. Unit sales of flat panel displays also rose dramatically during the first quarter with a 201 percent jump, bringing to life the findings of a recent CEA survey which showed that 49 percent of consumers say their next television purchase will be some type of flat panel technology.
