Retrevo explains this sharp spike by citing reduced holiday pricing by manufacturers to get HDTVs into consumer’s hands shortly before and after the Christmas holiday. The Super Bowl continued this trend of HDTV sales. They hypothesize that Circuit City’s demise may have had something to do with incentivizing other companies to keep their prices low, to match the liquidated stock coming from the bankrupt CE store.
Now that the holidays have passed, manufacturers are moving toward a more sustainable price point for their business. Retrevo released an index of their statistics to the public, outlining over 40 categories of consumer electronics, and including more than 4,000 products.
