The display industry has been stalled at effectively the same level of performance for half a decade now.
Took a few more years for the major companies to start offering 1440p 120Hz natively with all the goodies such as VRR, lower input lag and response times. I think the whole 3D era took the display industry for a weird turn, hence the "lack" of innovation, but it seems like we are currently heading to the right direction. I'm definitely a big fan of curved monitors and welcome high refresh rates with good color reproduction, low input lag and response times. I'm not convinced HDR will hit it off in 2018 quite yet and mainstream OLED is still a few years away. The PG35VQ and X35 will hopefully bring a higher standard with Ultrawides, but until monitors release with DP 1.4 or HDMI 2.1, it looks like the monitors themselves are bandwidth limited.
My 4 year old Qnix goes up to 120Hz at the cost of gamma shift that can be halfway corrected with a calibrated ICC profile. Doesn't look quite as good next to an LG 34UC88, but after a year of going from 120Hz to 75Hz then reverting back to 120Hz, gaming has become quite refreshing again (pun intended). That's why I'm anxiously awaiting for my Dell AW3418DW since it will be the best of both worlds for me.
