Analysis Highlight and Recent Prices by Size and Resolution for Notebook PC Panels
Average prices for notebook PC panels have been decreasing this month. Entering the traditional slow season, demand is decreasing and notebook PC set inventories have not been digested. Moreover, panel makers pushed too many panels to set makers in December. Therefore, brand demand for panels is lower in Q1'15. Notebook PC panel prices cannot be sustained this month. The average price drop will be around $0.5 to $1.0+. The gap between high and low prices is getting smaller.
