Samsung's the biggest TV maker in the world. It beat Sony 4 years ago. But it's getting even bigger. Soon it will pass 20 percent marketshare, which the WSJ points out is "a threshold not reached by any manufacturer since the earliest days of the industry more than 60 years ago." Think about that.
Also interesting! Number two is LG. Together, today, they make over 30 percent of TVs. (They actually make the TVs, too, instead of outsourcing the crap out of components.) They'll own more than a third of the market soon. Seoulpower. Korea is the new Japan. [WSJ]
