12 Dec, 2011 11:01:34
SEOUL, Dec 12 (AsiaPulse) - Samsung Electronics Co. (KSE:005930), the world's largest maker of flat-screen TVs and liquid crystal display (LCD) panels, said Monday that it has maintained its status as the top monitor supplier with a 15.5 per cent market share in the third quarter, thanks to strong demand for upper-end products.
Citing data released by International Data Corporation (IDC), Samsung said its sales of monitors rose more than 10 per cent from a year earlier in the July-September period to 6.42 million units.

The increase helped the Korean firm remain in the top spot in the global monitor market for the fifth straight year since the third quarter of 2006, it said.

Samsung said it outperformed rivals by a large margin in the high-end monitor sales, such as light-emitting diode (LED) monitors and big-size monitors.

In the LED-backlight LCD monitor segment, Samsung accounted for 25.5 per cent of the third-quarter sales worldwide. The No. 2 supplier of LED monitors, LG Electronics Inc. (KSE:066570), held a 18.2 per cent market share.

Samsung also claimed 27.5 per cent of global sales of the monitors that are 24-inch or bigger during the cited period.

While the global monitor market expanded 5 per cent in the third quarter from the previous three months, the LED monitor sales surged 26 per cent over the cited period, showing a rise in demand for the high-end products, Samsung said.

Dell Inc. was the runner up in the third-quarter global monitor sales, accounting for 12.5 per cent, followed by Hewlett-Packard Co., Acer Inc. (KSE:2353) and LG Electronics, according to IDC data. (Yonhap) cg
