TrendForce: In 2022, e-sports monitor shipments will face recession for the first time

According to the latest research from TrendForce, the shipments of gaming monitors in 2022 will face the first recession since the product was launched, and the forecast is lowered to 20.5 million units, a 10% annual decrease. The main reason is that inflation in Europe continues to intensify and interest rates rise in North America, which has seriously affected and crowded out the demand for consumer electronics products. In addition, the delay in the launch of high-end graphics cards has also caused some e-sports consumers to postpone their purchases.

According to TrendForce, based on the market share of flat and curved gaming monitors, curved gaming monitors will account for about 41% in 2021, increase to 44% in 2022, and are expected to reach 46% in 2023. The growth is due to curved monitors. In addition to the increase in panel supply and high-cost performance, the increase in the market share of Ultra-Wide (with fish screen) products is also one of the reasons for the promotion of curved products.

The report shows that in terms of e-sports display panel types, VA will account for about 48% in 2021, IPS will take the second place with 43%, and TN will be 9%; It is worth mentioning that with Samsung Display (SDC) launching QD-OLED and LG Display (LGD) launching After the White OLED e-sports display panel, OLED e-sports products will also begin to emerge in 2022, and the market share is expected to be about 0.4% in 2022. With the continuous mass production of new panels and the introduction of OLED products by brands, it is expected that in 2023 The market share can reach 2%.

Looking forward to the gaming display market in 2023, it is expected that with the increasing diversity of panel supply types and brands launched, gaming products in 2023 will still have the opportunity to maintain the growth trend of shipments while the overall LCD display market size will become smaller. TrendForce believes that the M-type product strategy will help the gaming monitor market to grow against the trend. 

First, low-end gaming products will be made more affordable. By reducing regulations and costs, the price gap between products and general monitors will be narrowed. In addition, a 100Hz product line can be added to replace the original 75Hz e-sports market. In addition, the high-end market continues to develop new technology e-sports products such as QD-OLED, OLED, and Mini LED, and at the same time enhance the user experience consumers. Increase the market share of gaming monitors.
