Samsung has been the undisputed world leader in the TV market for fourteen years in a row. Similarly, the company has announced that it has dominated the global soundbar market for six years in a row. According to market research firm Futuresource Consulting, Samsung had a market share of 16.5 percent and hoarded 21.8 percent of the global soundbar revenue in 2019.
The South Korean electronics giant designs and develops all of its audio products, including soundbars, at the Samsung Audio Lab in Valencia, California, in the US. Last year, the company released high-end soundbars in the Q series and received positive reviews all over the world.

Thanks to this Q-Symphony feature, audio sounds even richer and fuller. This technology recently received the CES 2020 Best of Innovation award, and it is used is all the Q series soundbars from Samsung.

We will ensure Samsung remains an industry leader in both the global TV and soundbar market for years to come.”
