Digitimes Research: Taiwan LCD TV shipments reach 9.51 million units in 4Q13
Tom Lo, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Monday 10 February 2014]

Taiwan-based LCD TV makers' shipments reached 9.51 million units in the fourth quarter of 2013, according to Digitimes Research.

Growth during the period represented an on-quarter rise of 5.8%, and an on-year decline of 9.5%.

Digitimes Research said the makers' shipments were slightly below the 10 million plus mark market observers had originally estimated, which largely came as a result of lower-than-expected shipments during the latter part of the fourth quarter.

About 45.1% of Taiwan TV makers' shipments go to North America while about 23% go to Europe. However, the proportion of shipments going to the Asia market is increasing due to developments between the makers and TV vendors in China.

TV makers did see better-than-expected results for large-size TVs during the fourth quarter of 2013. Makers such as TPV saw its proportion of 50-inch units increase more than expected on quarter while other makers saw steady demand from Vizio for 60-inch and above size units.

TPV, Foxconn Electronics and Amtran were the top three TV makers in Taiwan during the fourth quarter, noted Digitimes Research.
