A huge market is forecast for MLA drive in CSTN displays for mobile phones.

Monochrome mobile phone displays are being rapidly replaced by color LCDs. This has already occurred in Japan and other parts of the Far East and is well underway in Europe; the conversion has just started in the USA. By 2006 only the lowest-end mobile phones will be monochrome.
Both the passive, CSTN market share and absolute numbers for mobile phones are forecast to grow to 61% and 415 million units by 2006 at the expense of TFT and TFD displays. 40% of the CSTN displays in 2006 are forecast to use MLA drive.
