Samsung Halts CCFL LCD TV Sales in Mainland China

Yangcheng Evening News, 3/05/12

Samsung announced in Guangzhou this week that it will stop selling cold-cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) backlit LCD TV sets in mainland China this year. Instead the company will solely sell LED TV sets.

Li Mingxu, head of Samsung Electronics' TV marketing division, said Samsung halted R&D on CCFL-based traditional LCD TV sets in H2 2011, and in January 2012 halted production. According to global market research firm GfK Group, sales volume of LED TV sets in China's major cities reached 7.17 mln units, accounting for 70% of total LCD TV sets and far exceeding sales of CCFL-based LCD TV sets.
