DigiTimes, citing industry sources, says that 17آ” آ– 19آ” LCD monitor prices are likely to increase in June by as much as $10. The good news is that there is no price increase expected for 19آ” آ– 20آ” panels.

With the price increase, the ASPs (average selling prices) for 17- and 19-inch panels will reach US$125 and US$145, respectively, the sources said. Quotes for the segments already jumped US$8-19 in the beginning of May after rising since March, the sources noted.
