A tightening of supply on 14in and 15in monitors is likely to increase over the next months as 17in screens begin to dominate the market. According to a Romtec report on the third party UK monitor market, 17in screens had a 43 per cent market share in August, while 14in and 15in displays fell to 17 per cent and 25 per cent respectively. But flat panel display sales remain in the doldrums, with sales of only three per cent, Romtec said. Bob Raikes, senior analyst at research company Meko, said 17in displays would continue to fall in price over the next few months and were capable of displaying 1024 x 768 Windows displays, while the smaller sizes were not. But, he said: "The prices of 14in and 15in displays have started to tip upwards." That, he added, was because of a tightening of supply for the screens. While 17in displays continue to dominate the market, larger screen sizes still have a relatively small share, with 21in monitors standing at eight per cent, Romtec said. ® Click for more stories
