Deep price cuts on LCD’s looming
The LCD market is expected to face a greater than 10 percent global panel oversupply throughout the year as major Korean and Taiwanese LCD makers expand capacity, according to South Korea market research firm Displaybank.
All the major panel makers are increasing there output by roughly 10~15%. Samsung for example, has increased volume in its 7-1 Generation 7 line to 75,000 glass sheets per month from 60,000 sheets.
So what does all this translate to? An expectation that LCD monitor prices will most likely fall this year. Yippee!
