Santa Clara, Calif. – An increasingly quick-paced corporate PC
refresh cycle is helping boost LCD monitor production to all-time highs.
According to DisplaySearch’s Monthly Desktop LCD Monitor Brand
Report, 12.7 million monitors were produced worldwide in May, and this is expected
to hit 14.8 million in August. If this figure holds true, worldwide production
for January through August 2010 will be 19 percent higher than during the same
period in 2009.
DisplaySearch pegs the LCD monitor market at about $25 billion
“Current production plans indicate that, in spite of the push
towards mobile computing, there is demand for larger size, external displays
for all types of computing applications, leading to the conclusion that desktop
computing is far from dead,” said Chris Connery, DisplaySearch’s personal
computer displays VP.
