Analysis Highlight and Recent Prices by Size and Resolution for LCD TV Panels
Overall, panel makers still feel pressure to push out panels by lowering prices, but the price erosion will be modest in the first half of December. We still do not see a clear reaction through a loading rate adjustment as most panel makers prepare to ship panels for the holiday promotion season in Q4'13. For instance, Chinese TV makers are refilling panels for the next promotional season, but they are doing so with caution. While some panel makers are conservative about the demand outlook in December and Q1'14, some panel makers expect supply constraints in Q1'14 due to the required production lead-time for new feature-rich models and new sizes of models. The sell-through results during the hot season for main markets will be one of the swing factors for TV makers’ panel purchasing attitude.
