Nearly 70% of LCD monitors sold in August 2014 in the markets of US, UK, Germany, Japan and China, were equipped with HDMI/DisplayPort technology, up 7.5pp on year, according to Digitimes Research.
The proportion of 23-inch units sold that come equipped with the technology has increased from 64.9% in August 2012 to 74.2% in August 2013 and then to 75.9% in August 2014. The increase largely comes from vendors focusing on the release of 23-inch units that also come equipped with touch technology.
The global proportion of 24-inch HDMI/DisplayPort units meanwhile dipped on year in 2013 but has increased from 61.4% in 2013 to 86.8% in 2014, driven mostly by new mid-range and high-end units released by Samsung Electronics.
Digitimes Research also noted the global proportion of 22-inch HDMI/DisplayPort units increased from 50.7% in August 2013 to 63.9% in August 2014, mainly due to new 22-inch units launched from Dell and IIYAMA.
