17, 19 and 22-inch LCD displays in short supply in 2008

Posted on Saturday, January 05 2008 @ 08:27:19 CET by

Sources at panel makers claim shortage of 17" LCD displays will likely persist this year and that 19" and 22" widescreen panels may also run into supply problems this year:
The supply of 17-inch monitor panels was tight in 2007 because only a few panel makers were producing for the segment and supply will still be limited this year, the panel makers pointed out.

To meet demand for small- to medium-size panels and notebook panels, some panel makers such as AU Optronics (AUO) and LG.Philips LCD (LPL) are shifting their monitor panel production to plants of sixth-generation (6G) and above. Most of LPL's 5G capacity will be dedicated to notebook panels and only a small volume of the capacity will allocated for the 22-inch widescreen segment.

Due to gross margin considerations, panel makers are producing medium-size or notebook panels at 5G lines, which may squeeze capacity for the 19-inch widescreen segment. This may worsen the shortage of 19-inch widescreen panels in 2008. The 19-inch widescreen segment is not produced efficiently on a 6G line.
