Analysis Highlight and Recent Prices by Size and Resolution for Tablet PC Panels
Demand for iPad tablet PC panels continued to increase for the release of the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. However, small tablet demand may be affected by large mobile phones (mainly the iPhone 6), and most brands and white-box set makers are lowering panel purchase volumes. Those set makers have already purchased certain volumes of tablet panels in preparation for Q4 demand, so we expect strong shipments during the Q4 promotional sales season. Also, tablet PC panel prices will fall in Q4 due to their lower specifications and concerns about larger mobile phones.
