CRT monitors will continue to dominate the data display market for the next seven years, despite "mounting competitive pressure" from flat panel displays. Worldwide CRT sales will produce $17 billion revenues from 90.5 million units, according to research firm Stanford Resources. By 2004, the worldwide CRT monitor market will reach 134.7 million units, but market value will edge up only slightly to $18.9 billion, as average selling prices continue to decline, Stanford forecasts in the twelfth edition of Monitor Market Trends. The 19- inch CRT monitor is the fastest growing screen size, with expected shipments of 2.4 million units leaping to 23.2 million units in 2004. "With the introduction of new CRTs featuring flatter faceplates, shorter necks, and larger viewing area, CRT-based monitors continue to offer the best price/performance equation for computer applications," Stanford Resources analyst Rhoda Alexander said. Both 17- and 19-inch CRTs are the focal point for growth in the CRT monitor industry into the next decade,while formerly price-prohibitive 20- and 21-inch monitor markets are now becoming increasingly affordable for general computer users," Alexander said.
