When did Sony start to decline as electronics king and lost market dominance to Samsung LG and the Chinese brands?

They seem have turned around since 2012 with Kazuo Hirai as its President and CEO.


I am electronics tech enthusiast nerd and bit Sony fan who 27 years old I remember in early 2000s Sony was basically what Apple is now and Samsung probably greater.

Update 2:

Historically Sony products whereof some extended although Samsung has caught up and Apple has become very popular pretty fast where Sony remained stagnated or declining. but they are of high  quality worthy extra price  still

Update 3:

Sony brand was regarded as best in electronics.

Update 4:

TJ Punk I know but when did Sony start to decline what year.

    Globalization happens, manufacturing shifted to lower cost base... innovation and technology slowly shifted too.
