According to recent news from market sources in the LCD display manufacturing industry, the transition to LED-backlit monitors has been growing at a positively increasing rate, and the global market is on track to see the technology becoming mainstream in the consumer sector this year in 2010.

Last week, we wrote that LED-backlit LCD HDTV shipments were to increase exponentially this year by a margin of about eight times the current shipment numbers, so it comes as no surprise that the same will occur in the LCD monitor business for personal computing. As of now, there is a strong consumer demand for LED-backlighting from LCD HDTVs as well as notebooks which are both taking up the majority of the current Light Emitting Diode (LED) manufacturing supply. According to industry sources, the remainder of LED shipments is just not adequate to fulfill demand for desktop LCD monitor backlighting as well. In perspective, it will be easier to find a new notebook with LED backlighting this year than it will be to find a shiny new widescreen desktop LCD monitor with the same technology.

Analysts predict the forecast numbers for LED-backlit notebooks shipments between 60 and 70-percent of all notebooks shipping in 2010, while LED HDTVs will account for 15 to 20-percent of all LCD HDTVs shipping in 2010. It is important to note that the high cost of LED backlighting is still a large concern for the majority of manufacturers on all tiers of the playing ground. The eventual economic balance between supply, demand, overall reduced technology costs and marginal revenue will ultimately determine the adoption rates in the personal computing market.

I get confused by the term LED-backlit because here it's about back lighting, but I was under the impression that they would be using OLED's so there would be no back lighting required?
