Digitimes Research: LCD TV panel surface area shipped in 2Q14 grows 14%
Tony Huang, DIGITIMES, Taipei [Tuesday 8 July 2014]

The amount of LCD TV panel surface area shipped in the second quarter of 2014 grew 14% on year largely due to an increase in average LCD TV size, according to Digitimes Research.

Additionally, many panel makers are bumping up production of Ultra HD TV panels on 5G-7.5G lines, which is pushing down the supply of notebook panels and causing notebook panel pricing to increase.

Digitimes Research also said that Samsung Electronics' recent move to release tablets featuring AMOLED panel technology was in effort to sustain AMOLED panel production, particularly as smartphone shipments have been lower than expected.
