The world seems to moving into a direction of forming a giant assembly line. The manufacturing of parts and the creation of products are done through different companies. If manufacturing of LCD is concentrated to only a few companies, like Kinnar said, will monopoly be formed? What would be the impact to the price of final good?

It should not happen that LCDs will become a monopoly item of only few companies, if the giants are leaving the business like this.
