  • CRT Share of Electronic Display Market to Fall, IDC Says
  • January 19, 1999 (TOKYO) -- IDC Japan Ltd. projects that the market share of cathode ray tube (CRT) displays will decrease in the electronic display market from 71.3 percent in 1998 to 59 percent in 2002.
    Worldwide sales of electronic displays reached 5,192.7 billion yen (US$45.15 billion) in 1998, of which the share for CRTs was 3,699.1 billion yen (US$32.8 billion), according to IDC.

    However, IDC predicts that sales of CRT displays will register about 3,749.2 billion yen (US$33.2 billion) in 2002, although the total sales of electronic displays will be 6,353.7 billion yen (US$56.3 billion).

    The projections were made by taking into account that PC monitors and TVs will be less expensive in the future and that flat-panel displays will replace CRTs in many applications.
