Today, The NPD Group revealed the winners of its fourth annual Consumer Electronics Industry Performance Awards at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Awards were given to consumer electronics brands that achieved the top increases in market share in North America, according to NPD’s Retail Tracking Service, and the fastest-turning brand per item in the U.S., according to NPD’s Store-Level Enabled data.
This year’s awards include a focus on smartphones, with honors given to brands that achieved the fastest growth based on unit percentage increase in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.

This along with NPD’s unique data assets provides insight into market sizing, attribute tracking and regional trends.
