For decades, American had the biggest TVs. While Europeans watched soccer on tiny TVs, Americans always had far larger TVs to watch football, even before LCD technology. Now the Chinese buy bigger TVs than Americans. What's the problem, America?

According to the IFA Tech Trends report, the average size of TV screens sold in the United States is expected in 2020 to be over 52 inches, while Chinese consumers will push their country's average considerably higher, to 54.1 inches. That is more than 2 inches on average.

To compare, the Japanese television viewers are expected to buy new TVs with an average screen size of 40 inches. The size preference of Europeans is on average a screen size of 48.9 inches for TVs.
