The plasma market has seen some upheaval recently, but according to Digitimes' famous "industry sources", a poor 2008 could mark the end of an era. Matsushita (Panasonic), Samsung SDI and LG are looking to ship seven million, six million and four million units, respectively, or else between increased pricing pressure and expansion from LCDs, sources claim that not only will expansion cease, PDP manufacturing will start to be phased out. We've already seen prominent plasma manufacturers hedging their bets with LCD investments, but with more promising display technologies still "coming soon" we hope plasma hangs around a while longer.
