Analysis Highlight and Recent Prices by Size and Resolution for Notebook PC Panels
Entering the traditional slow season, demand is slowing in December. Some mobile PC brands' set inventories are piling up in the channel as some prepare for the Chinese New Year holiday and for emerging market demand. Overall, notebook PCs are in balance and vendors' inventories are at healthy to slightly high levels. Due to weak tablet PC demand and makers transferring mobile phone capacity to monitor and notebook panels, notebook PC panel makers are being pressured to make price concessions, including using marketing funds or rebates, to maintain stable shipments.
