Monitor Vendors Eyeing 5K Units In 2015

5K monitors coming in 2015? Well, hopefully that drives down the price of 4K monitors so we can all get our 4K gaming fix (here, here and here) without going bankrupt in the process.

As global shipments of LCD monitors are expected to reach 136 million in 2014 followed by 132 million in 2015 and 128 million in 2017, vendors are looking to release high-end units in niche areas in order to remain profitable. Supply chain sources noted that Philips in particular is eyeing 5K monitor opportunities, and that most 5K panel supply in the market will come from LG Display.
