Analysis Highlight and Recent Prices by Size and Resolution for LCD TV Panels

After 10 months of decline, some TV panel prices have bottomed out and are increasing at the start of April. Price hikes have been seen on 32", 40", and 42", sizes, which fell short of demand for some TV makers. Some panel makers even reported a supply constraint on new sizes like 39" and 48" and quoted higher prices for the additional allocation. Panel makers continue to allocate more resources to 4K and new larger-sized models, including super-large sizes like 65", for which demand is becoming strong. We also see strong demand and a strong forecast coming from some global TV brands like Samsung, LGE, and Sony, as well as  Chinese TV makers, which are refilling panels for Q2’14 and May Day holiday promotions. Panel makers recovered utilization in March and are likely to maintain utilization in April, though concerns remain about whether high production can be thoroughly consumed in Q2’14.
