Sales of 3D TVs accounted for over 10% of total LCD TV sales in China during the Labour Day holidays in early May, with models from China-based TV vendors accounting for 60% of total sales in the segment, according to analyst firm All View Consulting (AVC). China-based Hisense was the top vendor of 3D TVs, followed by Sony, Changhong, Skyworth and Samsung Electronics. Previously, the 3D TV market was dominated by models from Samsung. Pricing is the key for China-based vendors to grab a large piece of the growing 3D TV market. For example, Hisense priced a 55-inch 3D model at CNY4,000, (US$616) while Skyworth slashed the prices of its 42-inch 3D TVs to CNY2,999. 42-inch models are the mainstream 3D TVs; polarized 3D TVs accounted for 60% of the segment, followed by shutter type at 40%. CCFL-backlights were used in 20% of models, AVC noted. Total LCD TV sales during the Labour Day holidays (30 April-2 May) reached 1.58 million units, down 4.7% from a year earlier, AVC data showed.
