Sharp Europe CEO Sasaoka: Sharp is committed to the future markets of mobile and large-format LCDs
LCD TVs are driving the consumer electronics market like no other product. What started out as a niche application just ten years ago has turned into the dominant TV and display technology. As the inventor of the LCD TV and a leading LCD technology company, Sharp has been instrumental in encouraging this development and has set the trends by means of innovations such as the first LCD TV with a 165-centimetre (65-inch) screen diagonal or the launch of Quattron four-colour pixel technology. LCD TVs currently make up more than 70 per cent of the overall global TV market. This year alone, worldwide sales are forecast to reach at least 200 million LCD TVs. Sharp is focusing particularly on the strongly growing high-tech segments of mobile and large-format LCDs, though it also remains active in the volume TV market for high-quality LCD TVs with screen diagonals of between 66 and 116 centimetres (26 to 46 inches). The LCD manufacturer will be appearing at IFA 2011 under the slogan “Great Football on Big Screens”.
