Kogure indicated that global demand for flat panel TVs is expected to jump significantly in the next few years. By 2008, flat panel TVs will account for 42% of the overall TV market, up from a 32% share in 2007. LCD TV will account for 75% of the flat panel TV market, rising from 52% in 2005, added Kogure.
Putting the speculation aside, LCDs have still seen tremendous leaps in both the technology behind them and the willingness of consumers to use them. As volume grows and the technology improves, the prices will fall as well, making it better for everyone.
