TFT-LCD (thin film transistor-liquid crystal display) market growth has been stymied by a slowdown in PC monitors, notebooks and tablets. Although 4K LCD TVs, smartphones and automotive displays are driving forces for the market, the display market nevertheless is forecast to be flat to down in 2015. Dwindling TFT LCD display revenues, declining panel demand in the PC sector, along with ongoing panel-price erosion are the primary reasons for overall FPD revenue declines this year. Applied Materials led the LCD equipment market in 2014, but the overall equipment market is forecast to drop more than 10% in 2015.

This report discusses the technology trends, products, applications, and suppliers of materials and equipment. A market forecast for LCDs, equipment and materials is presented along with market share of vendors.
