Site for sore eyes

The displays industry deserves its own portal, claims web trader. By Graham Pitcher.

With the internet becoming a regular means of sourcing information, it is no surprise that the electronics industry is being served by an increasing number of web based trading services.
One of the higher profile web trading sites is PartMiner, which has attracted a lot of interest, not least from the investment community. To date, PartMiner has raised some $115million from a range of companies. The company has used the cash to create a wide ranging site, offering such features as: The Free Trade Zone, for the location and procurement of electronic components; PartMiner Direct, creating a spot market and on demand sourcing of electronic components; and Partminer CSD, a supplier of enterprise level collaborative sourcing and design solutions.

Given that PartMiner is just one of a number of similar sites, you might find it unlikely that a site has been created to deal specifically with displays. But that is just what PanelX has done.
