Mobile Device Revenues to Surpass that of Televisions for the First Time in 2014
Display manufacturers will make more money in 2014 from the screens found in mobile phones, tablets and laptop computers than those in television sets according to new data. This indicates that consumers are increasingly demanding for higher-quality displays in mobile devices.
Mobile displays are expected to account for 42% of the flat panel display industry’s 2014 revenue compared to just 37% for LCD televisions, knocking television out of the pole position it has held since 2006. The prediction came in a recent report from industry watchers NPD DisplaySearch. NPD DisplaySearch executive David Hsieh had the following to say regarding the matter:
With strong growth in tablet PCs, high-end notebooks, and smartphones - especially high resolution and wide-viewing angle displays — mobile devices are leading the growth of the FPD industry. Mobile devices are expected to expand their revenue lead over LCD TV in the years to come, accounting for nearly half of all FPD revenue by 2016.
The FPD industry is becoming increasingly dominated by smart handheld applications.
