There's also no reason to assume they don't also want a pony, and yet pony ownership is sadly on the decline. Wanting isn't buying.
since most households have multiple TV sets that means total sales of 70" sets would only be a fraction of total sales, even if they were to be adopted by 50% of families.
I don't think there's any way you can bake the numbers to make it look like most households have 70" sets, or are buying them this year, or next year, or anything like that. It's not (currently) a mainstream purchase.
Okay, this derail went on longer than I thought. 40-55" is the sweet spot as you said. Consumer behavior may change over time, but it's been stuck in that same sweet spot for quite a while now.Edited by CatBus - 1/23/13 at 4:47pm
