19 mln flat-panel display units to ship in 2007
CEA projects that display technologies will continue to be the star category in the industry and account for $26 bln in revenues for 2007. All television sets manufactured today with an analog tuner must also contain a digital tuner, which is largely responsible for the vast increase in digital television sales. Unprecedented price declines in plasma and LCD displays are also contributing to growth. For 2007, these flat panel displays are expected to ship a combined 19 mln units.
