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 Report is a comprehensive Excel database that details cost structures for large-area panels (+10”) by screen size, resolution, material, Hz, and fab. The DisplaySearch global analyst team interviews buyers and sellers across the supply chain to gather actual costs and develop accurate bills of material for each module tracked. With a reliable understanding of cost structures, clients are empowered to negotiate pricing, and future cost and price trends become more visible.

The report also includes a detailed PowerPoint analysis of market and technology trends. This combination of data and analysis enables clients to accurately track historical and forecasted costs, pricing and depreciation for first-tier TFT LCD suppliers. Clients can specifically

  • Track trends in module prices, manufacturing costs, and cash costs
  • Understand detailed notebook, LCD monitor and LCD TV panel cost structures
  • Get forecasts of notebook, LCD monitor, and LCD TV panel costs by year
