Revenue from flat panels to decline

Revenue from flat-panel displays is expected to come in at $22.5 billion this year--a decline of 8.2 percent from last year--according to a new report from market researcher DisplaySearch. The main reasons for the decline are price erosions from an oversupply of active-matrix displays and weak consumer and corporate spending on mobile phones and handhelds, which typically use passive-matrix displays.
