The global average retail price for 27-inch LCD monitors in October stands at US$418, increasing 5% on month, which is the highest growth among models of all sizes. Pricing for 24-inch models at US$243 has decreased 4%, while 20-, 22- and 23-inch prices are unchanged, according to Digitimes Research.
Monitors sized 27-inch remained over US$431 between February-August and dropped to US$398 on average in September before rebouding back to US$418 in October. The price decline was mainly due to decreases in the US and China as vendors rolled out a series of new lower-priced solutions.
In October, a number of new units hit the market including three new 27-inch monitors from LG Electronics that have features ranging from Ulra HD (4K) resolution as well as DisplayPort/HDMI and Thunderbolt 2.0, said Digitimes Research.
