LCD TVs outship CRT TVs for the first time

LCD has become the most popular TV screen technology in the fourth quarter of 2007. For the first time, LCD TVs outshipped cathode ray tube (CRT) TVs, according to Displaysearch.

The market research firm estimates that LCD TVs captured a 47% share of the global TV market, which reached 60.8 million units in the fourth quarter of the year. CRT TVs held a 46% share while RPTVs and plasma display panel (PDP) TVs are estimated at 7%.

LCD TVs continued their strong growth, gaining 56% to a record of 28.5 million units during the quarter. For the entire year, Displaysearch estimated that about 79.3 million LCD TVs were shipped, translating into a 40% of the total market of 200 million TVs. On a revenue basis, LCD TVs are dominating the $100 billion market with more than $68 billion in sales during 2007.

Displaysearch said that LCD TVs have gained market share in all global regions in 2007. LCD penetration was highest in developed regions, reaching 86% in Japan, 84% in Western Europe and 78% in North America. Western Europe regained the share lead as the top region for LCD TV shipments, rising from 28% to 32%, overtaking North America, which fell from 33% to 31%.

Contributing to the success of LCD TVs is what the market research firm calls a natural replacement process for CRTs. LCD is the only other technology that extends down to screen sizes of less than 20â€, which makes it an attractive technology for many applications. And consumers are willing to paying a premium for slimmer TVs: CRT TVs have fallen from 77% of global TV shipments in Q1 2006 to 46% in Q4 2007, even with LCD prices commanding a 224% premium for 32†and smaller screen sizes.

LCD TVs also saw share gains against RPTV and PDP devices for screen sizes of 40†and higher, as larger LCD panel fabs are producing larger screen sizes more cost effectively. LCD share of 40†and larger TVs has grown from 44% to 65% year over year on a unit basis while PDP TV has fallen from 40% to 31% and RPTV is down from 16% to 3%.

The average screen size of TVs sold climbed above 32†for the first time in Q4 2007; 1080p-capable TVs now hold a 17% share overall and a 57% share in TVs with a screen size of 40†or larger.

Ok... I'm confused.

What is a DLP CRT televison? I've never heard of one of those.

DLP (i.e. "Digital Light Projection") television are "rear projection"... but they don't have a CRT (cathode Ray Tube) in them.... or do they? Please enlighten me if I have mispoke here.

I think you are confusing your technologies with your statement above.

As far as CRT TVs go... I thought that the biggest they made was the Mitsubishi 40" from years ago... the biggest "tube" made for an analog TV. RPTVs (Rear Projection TVs) include the DLPs but those are for much larger sizes than most of the LCD offerings (LCDs are usually sold from 20" upwards to 46" usually... with a few larger sizes available at substantial upward cost for sizes larger than 46")

With 2009 rapidly approching, it's almost stupid to buy a CRT now for television... at least if it isn't a HD Capable. LCDs from 27" to 32" are getting way more affordable now and are a natural choice over an equivalent CRT model IMHO.

i really dont think there is such a thing, DLP is the technology that replaced the old projectors. i myself have 2 DLP's in my house and i can assure you they arent CRT sets, as i can almost positively assure you that they dont make DLP CRT's.
