LCD display prices to go up?

Research firm iSuppli claims prices of computer displays will go up in the near future:
Meanwhile, iSuppli says, monitor vendors are struggling with ever-thinner margins because of said competition.

The situation is beginning to change, however. The research firm explains that while panel makers intend to push prices further up in October, monitor demand from end users is decreasing and inventories are piling up. iSuppli therefore expects monitor vendors to attempt to stay afloat by increasing their profit margins, which will mean price hikes for end users. "That will result in a market slowdown, a return to oversupply, and a long period of adjustment during which panel pricing drops and overpriced inventories clear," the firm predicts.
