LCD Monitor Market Reaches $35B in 2005

Industry Leaders to Discuss Upward Momentum at DisplaySearch US FPD Conference

DisplaySearch, an NPD Group Company and the worldwide leader in display market research and consulting, recently revealed data showing worldwide LCD desktop monitor shipments grew more than expected in Q3’05, rising 20% Q/Q and 68% Y/Y to 28.4M units. As Q4’05 final worldwide numbers are tallied from all channels and regions, an additional 11% growth in worldwide branded volume shipments is expected resulting in annual unit shipments of 106.2M with revenues reaching $35B. 2005 LCD monitor shipments are expected to rise 54% for 2005, the highest yearly growth rate since 2003 when the market was less than half its current size.

With this high unit volume growth, LCD monitors are expected to account for 74.1% of the total desktop monitors shipped in Q4’05, as shown in Table 1, leading many to question whether the world’s largest outlet for larger-size LCD technology is becoming saturated. With top producers indicating increased multiple monitor use for standard office applications as well as the growing acceptance of wide aspect ratios for office and home use, the desktop monitor market could be on the verge of its next replacement cycle. -0-

“With industry leaders from all facets of the LCD monitor mix presenting their outlooks and strategies, this session will provide an insightful look into the future of this exciting market,” notes Chris Connery, VP of Desktop Monitor Market Research and moderator of the March 23rd Desktop Monitor session. “Additionally, while the consumer market continues to be the most visible market, analysis shows that the B2B market still represents 61.4% of the worldwide shipment of LCD monitors. Hearing additional insight into the new technologies such as LED backlighting for LCDs and smart displays, as well as other trends to help improve worker productivity, will help put the B2B and B2C market differences into perspective for the audience,” states Connery.
