FPD Supply and Demand and Capital Spending Research

Quarterly FPD Supply/Demand and Capital Spending Report
Frequency: Quarterly
File Format:


Comprehensive analysis of fab utilization and investments

DisplaySearch was acquired by IHS in 2014. The combined data and analysis from DisplaySearch and IHS has now been integrated into enhanced product offerings. The most up-to-date description of this product is available on the IHS Technology website.

The Quarterly FPD Supply/Demand and Capital Spending Report provides an in-depth look at the capacity, production and capital spending for the entire FPD supply chain. With quarterly coverage of over 150 industry participants, this report delivers the most current and complete view of fab activity. This report helps supply chain professionals

  • Deeply analyze supply chain trends starting at the individual fab level
  • Check panelization numbers and capacity availability for a given panel maker
  • Compare and contrast key supply and demand issues across the industry, in a single report
  • Perform competitive and industry benchmarking
  • Monitor key supply and demand metrics on a quarterly basis to evaluate opportunities and risks
