Analysis Highlight and Recent Prices by Size and Resolution for Notebook PC Panels
Market demand is weak and consumers are waiting for Windows 10 and the Skylake CPU to arrive, so notebook PC brand makers would not give a clear view of the Q3'15 market. They recently negotiated concession deals with component makers to lower set prices or offer as a commission for channel sales that result from their promotions in Q3. Notebook PC brands have prepared new PC models to catch up to consumers' demand in Q3'15. However, notebook PC panel orders may remain flat in Q3'15. A few panel makers have already decided to lower utilization or shift capacity to other applications such as monitors or industrial products. This will help keep panel prices from dropping sharply in Q3. However, prices on all notebook PC panel sizes are expected to drop over $1 this month.
