This report enables clients to track historical and forecasted costs, pricing and depreciation for large-area (+ 10”) modules for first-tier TFT LCD suppliers. Based on actual costs, clients can track trends in module prices, manufacturing costs, cash costs and materials cost for notebook, LCD
monitor and LCD TV modules (by size, resolution and fab).

Our global team of analysts interviews both the buyer and seller throughout the supply chain to develop an accurate bill of materials for each module tracked. With this reliable understanding of cost structures, our clients improve their price negotiations as well as understand where cost and price trends are going.
