Simulate costs for large-area TFT LCD panels

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 Large-Area TFT LCD Cost Model includes a cost simulator that enables clients to calculate costs, profits, and margins for large-area (+10”) panels. The database is pre-loaded with history and forecasts for large-area panel prices and major component, materials and labor costs. Clients can easily adjust these cost or price parameters to model their business needs and help them analyze the impact of different cost and profit scenarios. The report also provides insights into the latest industry and technology trends. With this research, clients can

  • Find out which substrate sizes are most profitable
  • Have accurate cost forecasts for panel price negotiations
  • Save valuable time when creating cost scenarios and researching future costs
  • Understand how individual components contribute to total panel cost
  • Stay on top of market developments and trends
