Digitimes Research predicts there will be a total of 389 million large-sized (9 inches and above) TFT LCD panels shipped in the second half of 2012, with 195 million in the third quarter and 194 million in the fourth quarter - with the total representing a 7.6% increase over the first half of this year. These estimates aren't ideal for the panel market and can be attributed to a lack of demand momentum for LCD TVs, LCD monitors, notebooks and 9-inch and above tablets in the second half of the year.

These estimates aren't ideal for the panel market and can be attributed to a lack of demand momentum for LCD TVs, LCD monitors, notebooks and 9-inch and above tablets in the second half of the year.
