Taiwan LCD monitor makers' shipments reached 22.14 million in the second quarter of 2014, up 10% on quarter and 0.9% on year, according to Digitimes Research.
Makers such as Foxconn Electronics and Wistron saw orders increase as vendors prepare to release new units, which helped push Taiwan makers global shipment proportion to 64.2%.
Going into the third quarter of 2014 Taiwan makers can expect to see a 6-7% increase due to demand during the peak season as well as to an increase in orders for new units as a result of Windows XP support coming to an end.
Meanwhile, the ASP of LCD monitor panels is mostly increasing due to limited supply as panel makers are shifting their focus to production of small- to medium-size applications, added Digitimes Research.
