The United States and other countries have struggled to fill their televisions, but in Japan, the country with the most televisions in the world, the packing boxes are a global trend.
Now, as TV buyers around the world are eyeing more affordable options, packing boxes have come to be seen as the perfect alternative.
And, it seems that the boxes have grown in popularity in Japan.
A new study published by the Japanese company Hynix on Thursday found that television packers accounted for nearly one in five televisions sold in Japan in 2017.
Hynix, a subsidiary of the electronics giant Samsung, said the number of television packing boxes in Japan rose from 1.8 million in 2015 to 2.6 million in 2017, which is a 26.9 percent increase from the previous year.
The company says the rise in popularity of TV packing boxes reflects a growing interest in the products and a growing number of people have made the switch from televisions to televisions packing boxes.
In a survey by the company, 70 percent of respondents said they would recommend packing boxes to others who are considering buying televisions.
About 70 percent also said they plan to buy televisions next year.
While packing boxes offer a simple and effective solution to buying television sets, the new study shows that it’s not enough to just offer them as a convenience, it also has to be a necessary investment.
