This is another big rise after a year-on-year increase of 34% in the second quarter of 2020. Since the beginning of the year, North American TV shipment has achieved a year-on-year growth of 26%. In the Western European market, although the second quarter of the year-on-year growth of only 2%, but in the third quarter achieved a 44% year-on-year growth, reaching 7 million units.

While Latin American shipments grew 19% year-on-year in the third quarter, much of the reason may be due to a 32% year-on-year drop in second quarter shipments and a rebound from insufficient inventories. Combined with the second and third quarters, Latin American TV shipments fell by 6% year-on-year and 2% from the year to date.
