The country already accounts for over 80% of UHDTV shipments and smaller TV sets, with screens below 60in, are the ones in greatest demand. 

According to the latest NPD DisplaySearch quarterly global TV shipment and forecast report, 1.6 million ultra-high definition (also known as 4K TV) televisions were shipped over 2013. And while demand from other countries picked up considerably over the last quarter of last year, China accounts for 84% of all shipments.
