"IDC expects the global monitor market will continue to decline at rates around 3% year over year from 2018 through 2020," the analyst says. "However, there should be some pockets of growth along the way, as illustrated by the MEA region, which experienced its 2nd sequential gain in a row, recording 3.8% Q-o-Q growth in Q1 2016."

For full year 2016 the analyst forecasts shipments will total 114m units, while Q1 2017 shipments are expected to decline by -7.4% Y-o-Y to 27.1m units. This is due to the adoption of mobile devices, since by 2020 global shipments are set to total less than 100m.
