Digitimes Research: LCD TV panel surface area shipped in 2014 expected to rise 8.7%
Tony Huang, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Wednesday 9 April 2014]

The LCD TV panel surface area shipped in 2014 is expected to rise 8.7% on year as demand for TVs is expected to increase and the average TV panel-size increases, according to Digitimes Research.

LCD TV panel demand was weak in the first quarter of 2014 as TV vendors aimed to clear out inventories, but is expected to grow 8% in the following quarter as vendors prepare to release new units.

The increase in the second quarter will also help stabilize pricing for LCD TV panels, said Digitimes Research.

Increased shipments of larger-size units will be the result of increased demand for Ultra HD TVs, most of which are expected to be 39.5-inch and above.
