Number of 1080p HD displays to skyrocket, researcher says
Four years from now, a third of TV shoppers will buy 1080p (sometimes referred to full) HDTV sets, according to display market research firm Displaybank.
The company forecasts that in 2011, the number of 1080p HD displays sold will reach 70 million. Last year, Displaybank estimated that 2.1 million full HDTV sets were sold and expects the number to reach 7 million this year.
According to Displaybank, the value of the 1080p market is expected to hit $19.6 billion in 2007, and will probably jump to $82.5 billion by 2011. LCD 1080p HD displays will account for 57 percent of the total, followed by plasma display panels at 34 percent.
