Walton says its smart TV gets huge response in Ireland market


Bangladesh's leading multinational electronics brand Walton has said its android smart television has witnessed a huge response in Ireland, a country in north-western Europe.

Walton TV is being displayed and sold in DID Electrical, the largest retail store in Ireland.

The electronics brand described, in a press release, the achievement of a huge response as a milestone toward its market expansion in Europe and also achieving the vision of becoming a top global consumer electronics brand.

Syed Al Imran, vice-president of Walton’s Global Business Division (GBD) and also in charge of the Europe market, said, “Walton is continuously expanding its brand business in the European countries. This year, Walton TV expanded its brand business to some European countries including Ireland. Walton sent the first shipment of its 32, 43, and 55-inch android Smart TV to Ireland in April last.”

He said, “Ireland’s renowned consumer electronics appliance company ‘Sommer Limited’ is marketing the Walton brand television.”

Walton TV’s Chief Business Officer (CBO) Engineer Mostafa Nahid Hossain said, "The market expansion of TV exports to Ireland is a great milestone towards achieving Walton’s ‘Go Global 2030’ vision. Geographically, Ireland is a promising market. Great Britain is its neighboring country. Walton TV export to Ireland has created the opportunities to expand its brand business to the market of Great Britain."

He also said, “Walton's mission is to become one of the best five TV manufacturing companies in the world. And thus, they are moving ahead with the plan of market expansion of Walton TVs in the countries of five continental regions by 2023.”

Walton is now exporting 'Made in Bangladesh' labeled TVs to more than 35 countries through its hundreds of global business partners. The European market holds almost 95 percent of the total exports of Walton TV.

Is Pakistan still exporting onions?

You have large firms making electronics in Pakistan as well. They are happy supplying the local market mostly and some maybe exporting. Turkish interests bought out the largest name I think (Dawlance?).

Exporting small batches of electronic items is not a huge deal. But Walton is very well-funded and they went into deep backward integration (circuit design and screen manufacturing from scratch) from the get-go.

Very good, hope to see Walton products in UK soon.

Too bad the Queen missed it.
Her witnessing Walton products making their way into Buckingham palace would have been remarkable.

I am sure her kids/grandkids will witness it.

Do they some plans to expand and deepen portofilio in electronics like semi conductor and chip production?
That would be icing on cake.

This all depends on production scale. At current scales, it doesn't make economic sense to produce SoC (System on Chip) or even SMD components locally in Bangladesh. It will be a while before any semi conductor production will take place in Bangladesh, and will depend on imported items. But that is true of even China and Korea to some extent, being how large their own and export markets are.

Indian market is 11 times that of Bangladesh and even their Banyas haven't invested in the level of Backward Integration Walton invested in. All their cellphone and electronics industry components come from China (lower tier producers there, given how cheap Sanghis are).

Only country in the world where you can get a phone for around 500 Rupees....

Yes, I think 'making' a tv is not difficult. I believe that almost all the tubes/screens are made by LG/Samsung, even for the japaneses sets. The rest is simply bolting bits together, like making a pc. Establishing an export market is a marketing skill in itself.

Please know that the once renowned Japanese manufacturers of household electrical/ electronic goods have already almost stopped manufacturing locally because of too steep value addition due to high labor costs.

Most have been transferred to China, Taiwan, and probably Korea. The shops are full of these foreign goods. However, the quality of them is almost as good as the Japanese ones. Japanese importers follow a very strict import quality.

I have read many Chinese visitors come to Akihabara electronic district in Tokyo with loads of money from their neighbors and buy many CHINA-made goods and ship them to China.

Why? It is because these goods are almost as good as Japanese goods although made in China. The Japanese strictly control their manufacturing in China.

The best tv manufacturer would be someone that build just monitors, without TV Antenna or Smart features crap.

I imagine the perfect TV with 3 slots, one for TV Antenna (DVB-T, ATSC, DVB-C, DVB-S2, or no one, for the people who just watch streaming) and one for Smart features with a Android Box "card", so the customers can choose if they want a Smart tv with 2gb RAM or 32 GB RAm, and so on. And the third slot for the AC/DC adaptor, changeable by the country electric system where the TV is used.

does Bangladesh uses DVB-T standard like Ireland?

Yes, Bangladesh adopted the DVB-T system for digital television broadcasts in 2014. But, I personally have little knowledge about all these standards. Someone can highlight them.

But I guess BD still transmit in analogic TV too, like other developing countries, to sustain the compatibility with old tv tuners.

Another countries like Venezuela gave free Digital TV tuners to the people to complete the conversion to only Digital TV transmisions.

No one that I know of in Bangladesh uses Analog TV's anymore (PAL was the analog standard).

PTV Black and White Television transmissions aired from studios in both Lahore and Dacca back in November and December 1964, which preceded airing of television transmissions in India which was late by several years from New Delhi. Mumbai and Amritsar did not get local TV broadcasts until 1972. Kolkata did not get it until 1975.

PTV started analog TV broadcasts about the same time as TVRI (Indonesia) and RTM (Malaysia).

Color Television broadcasts (PAL) were also pioneered in Bangladesh earlier than India. Bangladesh Television began official color transmissions in 1980 (experimentally a year earlier), marking the first official full-time Colour TV broadcasts in South Asia.[11][20].

Indians did not get Colour TV broadcasts until 1982, that too only experimentally, on a limited scale.

Kolkata folks used boosters to watch Bangladeshi regional (Khulna) relays of Bangladeshi TV programs (including cricket match broadcasts and Western syndicated programming such as popular American sitcoms and variety shows) in the late seventies, when they did not have a local terrestrial broadcast station with any interesting programming, just news broadcasts for maybe an hour a day.



Analog broadcasts also stopped in most countries by 2020, including Bangladesh.

Some holdouts, such as the Philippines and Brazil, will end analog TV broadcasts in 2023.
