"This is probably difficult to digest, given the Western view that US consumers typically set the pace for new technology adoption as they did with the PC, smartphone, and every other high-tech gadget produced up to now."

Jonah, everything depends up on the purchasing power of the customers and how much dispersible money they have. By knowing these factors most of the companies are offering discounts and offers using the festival seasons.

Are the people really buying HDTVS.... I feel the common user is ok with the regular LED TV and may not buy exclusively HDTV,

It is undoubtedly a race to the top of the television market. The fancier the TV is the better feedback it gets. UHD tvs are just that. Also there are IOT television sets and curved TVs and whatnot. China leads in this sector because it has got nearby electronic supplies and labourers as well!

I cannot believe China buys more 4k sets that the USA.  Chinese disposable income is lower that the USA. Chinese technology is somewhat behind US technology so the product offering should be less.  Also digital content in China lags dramatically that of the USA.  However if they have 6x the population then that might explain the number of sets.

SP, during festival season it's a trend about going for a new one either by exchanging the old ones or by an outright purchase.

Flyingscot, in general it can be like that. But during festival  seasons soft loan and other various discounted schemes can tempt peoples to go for a new one.

@Flyingscot, the numbers make sense to me, just because of the sheer mass of people who live in China. A smaller percentage of a larger number can be a large number for sure.

Only the rich in China can afford this kind of product. China population is huge we can't just use the number of rich people affording luxury products while out there numbers of poor people in China. And yes, rich peeps in China love to spend.
