TFT LCD Market Report and Forecast 2017-2022


TFT-LCD is a type of LCD with a thin film transistor attached to each pixel. All computer LCD screens are TFT since the early 2000s as older ones had a slower response time and poor colour quality. Being very light-weight, slim in construction, high resolution and low power consumption, they are gaining traction in almost all the industries wherever displays are required. They are less prone to reflection, viewable from a wider angle and much lighter than CRT TVs, which means that their larger sizes are feasible. During 2009-2016, the global TFT-LCD market grew at a CAGR of around 5%.. The market is currently being driven by increasing demand for flat panel TVs among households, quality smartphones among youngsters, tablets in the educational market, vehicle monitoring systems and the emerging gaming industry.
