Demand surge in TV for better World Cup viewing experience

Based on historical trends from GfK’s Point of Sales tracking, global demand for TV skyrockets prior to each World Cup season. TV sales begin surging around four weeks prior to the kick-off of the first match, peaking in the opening week. Findings gathered over several seasons of World Cup reflect a common trend suggesting that consumers tend to seek out bigger and better TV sets to enhance their viewing experience, while retailers at the same time seize this opportunity to sell more with their promotional activities.
