Jen-Chieh Yang, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Wednesday 2 November 2016]

Taiwan-based TFT-LCD panel makers shipped 309.749 million small- to medium-size panels in the third quarter of 2016, increasing 15.0% on quarter and 0.8% on year, according to Digitimes Research.

a-Si TFT-LCD panels took up 89.2% of the shipments and LTPS (low-temperature poly-Si) TFT-LCD units 10.8%, Digitimes Research indicated.

In terms of applications, handsets accounted for 74.78% of the shipments, automotive displays for 5.72%, tablets for 5.66%, digital cameras for 3.67% and PNDs (portable navigation devices) for 2.72%.

Chunghwa Picture Tubes (CPT) was the largest maker accounting for 34.98% of the shipments, followed by HannStar Display with 31.84% and Innolux with 19.67%. However, HannStar Display's shipments grew 45.3% on quarter due to large growth in production of panels used in feature phones, while CPT's and Innolux's rose 7.7% and 10.7% respectively.

Taiwan-based makers will ship 295.271 million small- to medium-size panels in the fourth quarter, slipping 4.7% on quarter but growing 4.0% on year.
