Digitimes Research: Taiwan small- to medium-size panel shipments expected to reach 337 million in 2Q14
Jen-Chieh Yang, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Tuesday 27 May 2014]

Taiwan makers' shipments of small- to medium-size TFT LCD panels are expected to reach 337 million in the second quarter of 2014, up 12% on quarter but down 6.8% on year, according to Digitimes Research.

The on-quarter increase comes amid demand for PND and vehicle applications while the on-year decline will largely be influenced from losing entry-level and mid-range handset panel shipments to makers in China and Japan.

The makers' shipments for portable DVD and tablets will see 3.8% and 1.9% declines, respectively, while vehicle and PND shipments will increase 21.9% and 16.9%.

Chunghwa Picture Tubes (CPT), Innolux and HannStar Display are expected to be the three main suppliers during the period, added Digitimes Research.
