Digitimes Research: Taiwan LCD TV makers see shipments decline over 20% in 1Q14
Tom Lo, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Tuesday 13 May 2014]

Taiwan LCD TV makers' shipments reached 7.53 million units in the first quarter of 2014, down 20.8% on quarter, according to Digitimes Research.

The decline marks the 9th consecutive quarter Taiwan makers have seen their shipments drop.

Shipments to Asia dropped largely due to a decline in orders from China-based TV vendor Haier, according to Digitimes Research's freshly published quarterly Taiwan FPD Tracker report on TV shipments.

About 14.7% of the makers' shipments were for 50-inch and above size units while shipments for 32-inch units declined due to decrease panel production capacity in the segment from Taiwan panel makers.

TPV Technology, Hon Hai Precision Industry and Compal were the top three makers in Taiwan in terms of shipments during the first quarter, said Digitimes Research.

Looking to the second quarter, the makers' shipments are expected to increase to 9.1 million units, added Digitimes Research.
