San Jose (sănəzā`, săn hōzā`), city (1990 pop. 782,248), seat of Santa Clara co., W central Calif.; founded 1777, inc. 1850. , Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 13, 1999--
Stanford Resources, Inc., the most influential market research firm focusing on the global electronic display industry, announced today that flat panel display A thin display screen for computer and TV usage. The first flat panels appeared on laptop computers in the mid-1980s, and the LCD technology became the standard. Stand-alone LCD screens became available for desktop computers in the mid-1990s and exceeded sales of CRTs for the first time (FPD (1) (Flat Panel Display) See LCD, plasma display, EL display, FED and flat panel display.

"The worldwide shipment value for TFT-LCD monitors will grow from $1 billion in 1998 to $2.6 billion in 1999," said Rhoda Alexander, Senior Market Analyst at Stanford Resources. "By 2005, this value will soar SOAR - 1. State, Operator And Result. A general problem-solving production system architecture, intended as a model of human intelligence. Developed by A.

Stanford Resources also stated that recent shifts in technology have significantly impacted the flat panel monitor market. According to Alexander, "TFT-LCDs have all but squeezed STN-LCDs out of the computer monitor market, making TFT-LCDs the technology of choice. Additionally, the flat panel monitor market is moving toward a hybrid digital/analog interface, which will play an important role in the transition from analog to digital."
Forecasts through 2005 and strategic market analyses for 1997 to 2005 are provided in Flat Panel Monitor Market Trends 1999. The report defines this market by examining the current supply and demand for all desktop computer displays, analyzing the global display environment, and identifying and discussing the companies involved in supplying FPD monitors worldwide.
Stanford Resources' Vice President David E. Mentley stated, "Flat Panel Monitor Market Trends 1999 demonstrates that despite tough competition from CRT monitors, which are relatively inexpensive, flat panel displays will capture a progressively larger share of the market through 2005. As prices continue on a steady downward march, consumer desire for smaller footprints, unique form factors, and energy savings will help FPD monitors gain a larger share of the overall monitor market."
Flat Panel Monitor Market Trends 1999 features a database of extensive FPD monitor information by screen size, pixel format, and region, as well as compound annual growth data from 1997 to 2005. Each region's forecast provides separate tables for units, average selling price The average sales price of goods or commodities.
