Digitimes Research: Taiwan LCD TV shipments to decline 16% in 1Q14
Tom Lo, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Friday 14 February 2014]

Taiwan-based makers are expected to ship 7.96 million LCD TVs in the first quarter of 2014, down 16.3% sequentially, according to Digitimes Research.

Competition and unsteady TV demand throughout the global market are the main reasons for the decline. About 46.7% of Taiwan makers' shipments go to North America while 25.2% go to Asia and 22.2% Europe.

Going into the first quarter of 2014, 11.9% of the makers' TVs shipped will be for 50-inch and above size units while 43.5% will be for 37- to 39-inch units.

TPV, Foxconn Electronics and Compal are expected to be the top-three Taiwan TV makers in the first quarter, said Digitimes Research.
