 – Hiroshi Yoshioka, the president of Sony’s consumer products and devices group, has indicated that the company may not reach it’s goal of selling 25 million LCD television sets by the end of the fiscal year on March 31, 2011.

“In order for us to get a profit, we have to increase the number of TV’s sold,” he told reporters. He didn’t relay how Sony plans on doing this, or if they have a plan.

Because the industry has shifted from cathode-ray tube technology to flat liquid crystal displays, the TV units that Sony wants to increase sales of have actually fallen. The unit has lost money for the last six years, and will likely see losses again this year. Sony considers one of its biggest challenges to be able to generate a solid profit from it’s TV business.

Yoshioka said that year end holiday sales are proceeding as forecast. The numbers are led by very good sales in emerging markets.
