The taxation of smart TV’s is a key factor hampering the growth of the smart TV market. Television is the only group in which two Goods and Services Tax (GST) levels apply. Television sales of up to 32 inches are falling, accounting for 55 percent of overall sales in 2019 compared to 75 percent two years ago as consumers want to buy bigger displays, customers are delaying purchases anticipating a tax cut. For instance, in India, smart TVs are put under the highest tax slab of the Goods and Services Tax, with customers paying 28% of the already exorbitant prices at which TVs are priced. Therefore, the taxation of smart TV’s is expected to limit the growth of the smart TV market.

The 8K TV is a key trend in the smart TV market. The 8K TV sets have 33 million pixels, compared to 8 million pixels in a 4K package. All those millions of extra pixels provide clearer, more accurate images than the 4 K UHD TVs. The 8K Ultra HD doubles the 4K Ultra HD resolution, and it is 16 times the full HD resolution. In 2020, LG unveiled three new 8K versions and this year, Samsung tripled its 8K QLEDs. Therefore, TV manufacturers are gradually promoting 8K TVs as their 2020 flagship sets.

The rising popularity of video-on-demand service is a key factor driving the growth of the smart TV market. Video on Demand (VoD) is one of the innovative features that Internet Protocol TV (IPTV) gives. VoD gives consumers a range of available videos to choose from. The video is transmitted via the Real-Time Streaming Protocol. In the recent years VOD has gained tremendous popularity, this has resulted in higher smart TV adoption rates. For instance, in 2019, US providers were the pioneer of VoD users. Amazon Prime Video came at first with 72%, Netflix was second with 63%. In 2019, 53% of users spent more than $11 a month on streaming services, in 2018 the figure was only 43%. Therefore, the rising trend of video-on-demand service is expected to drive the growth of the smart TV market.
