20 April 2018
LED TV Imports

India’s imports of LED TV valued at USD 770260192 between Jan-Dec 2017, in which August month recorded the highest shipments. LED TV, which comes under HS Code 852872 at 6-digit level, is one of the widely imported electronics in India. Total 5302137 pieces of LED TV were purchased by India in the said period. Here is in-depth analysis of LED TV imports in India with 2017 India import statistics of LED TV.


As per media reports, price of LED TV models up to 42-inches will escape any big price hike, despite government announced an increase in the Indian custom duty on LED TV panels from 7.5% to 15% during union budget 2018. LED panels account for almost 80-85% of a television’s manufacturing price. Apart from big brands, which import the panels in “open cell format” where products are assembled in the country by putting top-glass of the screen in local plants, small brands who sell panels online and in smaller towns will bear the brunt of doubling the duties. Hence, the government has made an expensive deal for companies to import TV panels for boosting the ‘Make in India’ initiative. This move would also benefit in washing out the unorganized players in the consumer durables goods segment.
