40 and 42-inch LCD TVs to become cheaper

Posted on Friday, Jul 29 2005 @ 07:13 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Market research firm iSuppli reports prices of 40-inch and 42-inch LCD TV panels have fallen to an average of $1,125, with some prices falling to as low as $950.

The company expects this will lead to the available of 40/42-inch LCD TV at prices at low as $2,500 in the fourth quarter of this year.
LCD panel suppliers are driving the rapid pricing decline, as they continue to invest heavily to boost output at their fifth-, sixth-, and seventh-generation fabs to produce large-sized panels for television sets. Because of this, panel suppliers are increasingly focusing on the 23- , 26- , 32- , 37- and 40-/42-inch screen sizes, causing market demand to shift more toward those dimensions, iSuppli said.
Prices of smaller LCD TV panels are also falling. More info at EE Times
