The Taiwan optoelectronics industry's production value reached $4.51 billion in the first quarter of this yeara 55.7 percent increase from the same period last yearaccording to Industrial Technology Intelligence Services (ITIS).

ITIS predicts that the optoelectronics industry's revenues will improve by about 44.7 percent to more than $19.24 billion this year. Champion Wang, director, noted, "Taiwan's TFT-LCD production value during the first quarter of this year reached $1.39 billion, up by 230.6 percent from the same quarter of 2001. However, TN- and STN-LCD production value during the first quarter of this year decreased to 13 percent compared to the same quarter last year."

Wang says the display sector's production value during the first quarter of this year reached $1.72 billion, an increase of 132.3 percent from the same period in 2001. For optoelectronic storage products, the production value for the first quarter of this year was $1.42 billion, a 52.5 percent increase. The growth came from rising demand from CD-RW, PS2, Xbox and DVD-ROM equipment makers.

"The production value during the first quarter of this year declined by 2.2 percent from the same period of last year due to falling prices in fax machines and printers. But there is a chance that production will increase by 13.9 percent this year because of high-end digital cameras," he added.

According to a survey conducted by ITIS, optoelectronic communication products reached $129.56 million during the first quarter of this year, up by 26 percent from the same quarter in 2001. Optoelectronic components posted a production value of $243.77 million, an increase of 23.6 percent from the same period last year.
