Taiwan-based TV makers saw their shipments surge 33.8% sequentially to 6.22 million units in second-quarter 2020 as demand from clients in North America remained strong despite the coronavirus impacts, according to Digitimes Research.

In the second quarter, shipments of below 45-inch TV models expanded significantly, with those in the 32- to 39-inch segment showing the strongest growth and accounting for 28% of the total shipments. Meanwhile, the ratio of 4K models dropped to 44% in the quarter.

TPV Technology was the top vendor in the second quarter, accounting for over 50% of total shipments. Fellow company Amtran Technology also performed robustly, buoyed by steady orders from clients in China and Korea.

Thanks to prevailing stay-at-home activities, makers are expected to see the shipment momentum continue into the third quarter, with their combined shipments growing 20% sequentially in the quarter and also exceeding the amount shipped a year earlier, Digitimes Research estimates.

Besides, the shipment ratio of above 60-inch models against total shipments is likely to climb to over 10% in the third quarter and those shipped to the North American market will account for nearly 50%.
