Average retail pricing for LCD monitors in the US, UK, Germany, Japan and China will all see declines on month in October 2014, with 27-inch units dropping 5% to US$341, 24- and 23-inch units 1% to US$264 and US$259, respectively, and 22-inch units 2.8% to US$175, according to Digitimes Research.
From July 2013-January 2014 global average pricing for 23-inch units was higher than for 24-inch units. However, for six consecutive months leading into October 24-inch unit pricing has exceeded that of 23-inch LCD monitors, largely driven by 24-inch units from Samsung Electronics that come equipped with touch panels and wide-angle viewing, noted Digitimes Research.
