Large-area display shipments will fall 5% to reach 682 million units in 2015, according to IHS forecasts.
The research firm said that this decline will be offset by an increase in large area thin-film transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display (LCD) shipment area, which is expected to grow 5% this year.
TFT LCD TV panel unit shipments will increase by 7% in 2015, while combined year-over-year unit shipments for tablets, notebook PC and PC monitors will decline 12%, according to the research.
The area size for shipments of TV panels is expected to grow 9% this year, while the combined shipment area for displays used in PCs, notebooks and tablets is expected to decline 10%, said IHS.
“Increasing TV panel area shipment is leading to growth in the overall TFT LCD panel market, because TV displays comprise the vast majority (78%) of total panel area,” according to IHS in its latest IHS Large Area Display Market Tracker report.
Yoonsung Chung, director of large area display research for IHS Technology, said: “Maintaining television panel production is the most important factor in maintaining the display industry’s fab utilisation.”
