Digitimes Research: Demand for curved-panel LCD monitors to take off in 2015
Betty Shyu, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei

Since the first curved-panel LCD monitor model was launched in the second half of 2014, the price gap between curved models and flat-panel ones has narrowed to as low as 18%, and as prices are expected to further drop and additional vendors will join the market in the second half of 2015, global demand for curved-panel LCD monitors will take off in the year, according to Digitimes Research.

Vendors are eyeing the technology due to its aesthetics in addition to the benefits the new technology has for entertainment such as gaming. Additionally, due to price reductions curved units are now becoming the standard for newer uits released in the market, with vendors such as Samsung Electronics releasing various units with 21:9 aspect ratio and higher resolutions.

Acer recently showcased new 34- and 35-inch curved LCD monitors at Computex 2015 while Asustek Computer displayed new 34-inch technology as they aim to bump up their presence in the large-size, curved monitor market in the second half of 2015, noted Digitimes Research.
