Taiwan makers' shipments of large-size TFT LCD panels sized 9-inch and above reached 67.92 million in the third quarter of 2014, up 0.6% on quarter and up 5.3% on year, according to Digitimes Research.

Innolux was a main driver of the overall increase, with TV panel shipments growing 17.7% in the quarter. The company also saw a 41% increase in Ultra HD TV panels.

Taiwan panel makers' overall shipments of LCD TV panels grew 7.4% on quarter during the quarter to represent 31% of total large-size panel shipments.

Additionally, Taiwan makers' monitor panel shipments declined 8.9% while notebook panel demand rebounded as Innolux received new orders as a result of LG Display shifting capacity to other applications, said Digitimes Research.
