15in notebook display panels will become cheaper to buy next month despite tightness in the supply of same-sized panels built for LCD monitors, market watcher DisplaySearch has claimed.

The report, cited by Chinese-language newspaper the Economic Daily News, notes that while the prices of 15in and 15.4in notebook panels will fall slightly next month, 14in notebook panels will remain in tight supply.

So too will 15in and 19in monitor-oriented panels, suggesting that prices may rise. DisplaySearch reckons there are sufficient 17in monitor panels to meet demand - a sign that prices should stay stable.

DisplaySearch has said before that it expects overall TFT LCD supply to exceed demand by only 5.5 per cent this year, indicating that supply will be tight. ®
