According to the IHS market, the large TFT display market grew significantly in 2017, reaching $63.7 billion in revenue. Thanks to increasing demand for large displays and high end products such as Quantum Dot displays, the market expanded in all three aspects -- unit shipments, area shipments and revenue. Robin Wu, principal analyst at IHS Markit:

"Revenue growth was higher than that of area shipments, which was again bigger than that of unit shipments. This indicates that the display market is moving to larger screens in all applications, and the penetration of high specification products with a higher price tag, such as high resolution, wide viewing angle and slim design panels, has increased.”
