Samsung Dominates Ultra-HD TV Market in Europe

Samsung Electronics has become the No. 1 ultra-HD TV maker in Europe after it claimed 48.3 percent of the market in October, market research firm GfK said on Thursday.

Samsung achieved the feat just three months after launching 55- and 65-inch models in the continent, which caused its share of the market to jump from 33.3 percent in September.

By country, it owns more than 60 percent of the ultra-HD TV markets in Britain and Switzerland, and over 40 percent in France and Germany. / Dec. 13, 2013 10:34 KST
