Will 17" give way to 19" widescreen LCD monitor panels?

With 19" widescreen panels generating higher profits than 17" standard panels, research firms and panel makers are projecting different degrees of replacement of the 17" panels by the 19" widescreen segment.

Widescreen and larger products will become the future mainstream for the LCD monitor industry, with the 17" segment, currently the mainstream size, seeing a reduction in market share from 50% now to around 18% in 2010, and the 19" standard and widescreen segments to see their share increasing from 26% and 6%, respectively, to 33% and 22%, according to research firm DisplaySearch.
