LCD panels suffer price slips amid soft TV sales

OLED displays sharpen competition, but shift toward larger screens may help

TOKYO -- Declining television sales in the U.S. and China have dimmed prices for liquid crystal display panels.

The bulk order price for the benchmark 32-inch open-cell panels -- semifinished products without backlights -- came to around $65 apiece in January, down 2% on the month. Prices slid 3-5% for screens of 40 inches to 49 inches, while 55-inch panels stayed flat around $176.
