WitsView, a division of TrendForce, reports that large-size LCD panel shipments for this January totaled 5747 million units, down 168% from a month ago Most panel makers posted declining results, but Panasonic LCD and Sharp were able to grow their shipments against market headwinds because they had shorter base periods “Looking at February, large-size panel shipments have been scaled back because of the Chinese New Year holidays that resulted in fewer work days during the month,” said Iris Hu, research manager for WitsView “The earthquake that struck southern Taiwan on the 6th also disrupted the operation of Innolux’s fabs Hence, the total monthly shipments will drop by about 3% from January” Hu added that demand remains weak in all applications TV panel shipments are expected to fall by 5~6% monthly in February, while notebook and tablet applications will respectively register shipment declines of 3~4% The overall inventory level of monitor panels has been low versus other applications, so monitor panel shipments in February are expected to hold steady Seasonal influences and inventory adjustments caused shipment decline for all applications in January TV panel shipments for January totaled 1959 million units, down 138% from the prior month Innolux and CEC-Panda suffered the largest monthly declines in their TV panel shipments, respectively by 223% and 42% Innolux’s poor performance was due to the absence of 236-inch TV panel orders from the Mexican government, while CEC-Panda pulled back their TV panel shipments to minimize the profit loss resulted from price competition and having an inadequate product strategy Monitor panel shipments for January fell to 1018 million units, representing a monthly drop of 175% However, Chinese panel maker BOE Technology (BOE) limited the decline for this application to 21% and became the No 2 monitor panel supplier worldwide for the first time, overtaking Taiwanese competitors AU Optronics (AUO) and Innolux BOE’s success was attributed to its aggressive pricing and extensive product lineup January’s shipments of notebook panels arrived at just 1197 million units, down 198% compared with December On the other hand, AUO grew its notebook panel shipments by 22% against the market headwinds by raising the share of twisted nematic (TN), FHD products for this application The Taiwanese panel maker was also able to take advantage of its close relations with long-term clients Acer and ASUS Seasonal effects caused monthly tablet panel shipments to fall 177% to 1573 million units in January Innolux’s monthly decline was over 40% due to the panel maker’s decision to reduce shipments to the white-box tablet market Sharp by contrast registered a massive 471% monthly growth in its tablet panel shipments as the Japanese panel maker continued to supply the panel of the 129-inch iPad Pro to Apple

The latest large-size LCD panel shipment report by WitsView, a division of TrendForce, says a total of 2274 million LCD TV panels were shipped in November, representing just a 08% decrease compared with prior month and a 22% increase year on year Iris Hu, WitsView assistant research manager, stated that since branded TV vendors are going to do an annual inventory check at the end of year, some of the December’s panel demand was pulled into November Consequently, November’s monthly TV panel shipments saw only a small decline LG Display (LGD) posted the best TV panel shipment result in November with 482 million units shipped and monthly growth of 128% LGD has been expanding its presence in China and is now the leader in LCD TV panel market on account of its close-knit relationships with its Chinese partners The other South Korean panel maker Samsung Display Corp (SDC) by contrast has had uneven performances through this year because it relied too much on purchase orders from the group company Samsung Electronics Nonetheless, SDC’s monthly TV panel shipments for November grew 114% to 426 million units due to October having shorter shipment base period Taiwanese panel maker Innolux managed to post impressive results owing to Mexico’s procurement With the last TV panel shipments to the country delivered in October, however, Innolux’s performance started to slide Shipments of its 236-inch TV panels in particular suffered a sharp 42% monthly decline in November As a result of the shipment plunge in this size segment, Innolux’s TV panel shipments on the whole fell 238% in the same month, totaling just 358 million units This is the first time this year that Innolux saw an over 20% monthly drop in TV panel shipments, and the panel maker also lost its No 3 spot in the TV panel shipment ranking Major Chinese panel maker BOE Technology (BOE) replaced Innolux in November’s ranking with 361 million units shipped and a monthly growth of 3% BOE continues to leverage its massive capacity to expand shipments and take orders away from competitors AU Optronics (AUO) has seen strong sales and restocking of its 43-inch panels, and this segment’s monthly shipments surpassed 600,000 units in November The growth in 43-inch panel shipments helped raise AUO’s overall TV panel shipments in November to 241 million units, which was a new monthly record this year However, AUO was still No 6 in the TV panel shipment ranking, trailing behind China Star Optoelectronics Technology (CSOT) CSOT remained in the No 5 spot in November even though its TV panel shipments fell slightly by 04% compared with the prior month It is likely that AUO and CSOT will continue to trade places in the ranking in the near future
