According to a report from Digitimes, citing an unnamed source from the supply chain, worldwide monitor shipments reached 800,000 units last year and Asus monitors were a big part of that, holding over 40 percent of market in Europe, the US and Taiwan.
Asus has recently revealed a couple of new gaming monitors under the Republic of Gamers brand and its ROG Swift monitors got nothing but praise, so it does not come as a surprise that the company managed to sell quite a few of those. The main culprit, that was probably a big part of the rumored 40 percent of the gaming monitor market is the first ROG Swift monitor with 144Hz refresh rate and 1440p resolution which was launched back in 2014.
Asus now has quite a few ROG Swift monitors on the market including the ROG Swift PG279Q, a 27-inch 2560x1440 IPS 165Hz monitor with G-Sync, the ROG Swift PG278Q, a 4K/UHD monitor with G-Sync as well as the earlier announced ultra-wide 34-inch ROG Swift 100Hz monitor that should become available early next month. There was also a recent rumor that Asus is working on a cheaper ROG Swift monitor, which could significantly boost its monitor sales.
