Digitimes Research: Large-size panel shipments expected to decrease 1.4% in 2014
Tony Huang, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Thursday 28 November 2013]

Large-size (9-inch and above) TFT LCD panel shipments are expected to reach 675 million units in 2014, down 1.4% on year, according to Digitimes Research.

LCD TV panel shipments will see only 0.7% growth. Panel shipments will outpace LCD TV shipments through the end of 2013, which means that inventory will be high going into 2014.

Additionally, LCD monitor and notebook panel shipments are expected to drop further in 2014 but all-in-one (AIO) PC panel shipments are expected to slightly increase.

Digitimes Research said despite the decline in large-size TFT LCD shipments, panel surface area shipped during 2014 will rise 4.1% on year, compared with 2% on-year growth in 2013.The on-year decline will be the second year in a row.

Meanwhile, Ultra HD TV panel shipments are expected to reach 15.3 million units in 2014, up over 400% on year.

Medium-size (7- to 8.9-inch) TFT LCD panel shipments are expected to increase 4.6% in 2014, added Digitimes Research.
