Notebook players battling over touchscreen panel supply

Posted on Thursday, November 01 2012 @ 20:00:28 CET by

DigiTimes reports notebook makers including Acer, Lenovo and Asustek are having a touch time securing enough supply of touch panels:
Acer, Lenovo and Asustek Computer have all recently launched touchscreen notebooks with Windows 8, but due to tight supply of touch panels, the brand vendors have reportedly stationed workers at their touch panel suppliers to ensure smooth supply, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.

Acer president Jim Wong also recently revealed that the company has signed contracts with suppliers such as TPK and should have sufficient capacity for its products in 2013. If the company is able to receive a smooth supply, the company will have a chance to become the largest touchscreen notebook vendor in terms of shipments in 2013.
The site mentions touchscreen notebooks are expected to account for 5-10 percent of the laptop market by the end of this year, and the percentage is anticipated to increase to 20-30 percent in 2013.
