Display industry: Overview

Source: Technavio, 2015

A lot of this innovation has come in the wake of falling prices of more established LCD TVs. While this is good for consumers, it’s not great news for vendors. Shrinking sales have pushed top companies in the market towards developing novel displays to bolster revenue.

But according to Technavio, there are still strong projections on the horizon for LCD technology, particularly in the area of large area LCD displays. The global market is expected to climb from a value of $73.8 billion in 2015 to $84.5 billion in 2019.

On top of offerings from LG, Samsung, and Sony, a number of other key vendors are expected to make major contributions to market growth over the forecast period.
