TCL has just released its financial report across all of its operations, its consumer display and audio divisions included, for 2021. It concludes that the OEM's net profits went up by over 100% compared to 2020, ending the year with such takings of US$2.59 billion. TCL also notes that sales of its mid-to-top-end TVs (such as those with mini-LED panels) exhibited "significant" year-on-year (YoY) growth.

TCL, an increasingly familiar name in the home media-consumption and home-theater space, had previously revealed that its profits hit the billion-dollar mark half-way through 2021. Now, the company has totted up all its revenues and profits for the whole of the same year, and indicates that it kept its momentum going for all 12 months involved.

TCL has an Industrial arm, in addition to Technology divisions and of course its CSOT display-development group, all of which contributed to total revenues that grew by 65% YoY to $38.1 billion in 2021, of which $2.59 billion (+129% YoY) remained as net profits.

However, the OEM's consumer business arm stood out in terms of performance, particularly in terms of mid- to premium-tier TV sales. Those of its mini-LED models rose by 50.5% YoY, while TVs with QLED displays did even better at +53.8% YoY. These figures may have helped propel TCL to top-3 status in this market worldwide for 2021, with a share ending the year at 11.5%.
