Speaking at a news conference, the Korean electronics company said that the ambitious target for 2010 will be followed by a further 3.4 million sales in 2011.
Although Sony is set to become the first to enter the 3DTV fray, LG expects to have unveiled a full line-up of 3DTV models with CES in January likely to be the place to start showcasing its 3DTV offerings. Further improvements to the technology will then follow in the second half of 2010.
2010 looks set to be the 'year of 3D', with Sky set to launch the UK's first 3D channel, and Sony to film the World Cup in 3D and bring 3D gaming to the PS3, amongst many of its own 3D committments.
Currently, LG only offers a 47-inch 3DTV, but it carries such a hefty price tag that it is sold mostly to businesses. LG's aggresive 3DTV push appears to signal the company's intent not to be the last to fully embrace the next visual revolution.
In other LG telly business, the company expects LCD TVs to continue to sell well with 25 million units expected to shift in 2010.
