Samsung Sees TV Sales Soar to Record High

Samsung Electronics posted record TV sales in the fourth quarter of 2013 to dominate the global market for the eighth straight year.

According to Display Search on Sunday, the electronics maker sold 1.6 million TVs during the three-month period despite the slowdown in the global market that is now continuing for a second year.

Samsung posted brisk sales in all regions, particularly in North America where its market share reached 40 percent, an all-time fourth-quarter record. It attributed the high sales to the fervor for its products seen over Black Friday weekend.
