Taiwan's large size TFT-LCD panel shipment volume and value both saw strong gains in the third quarter of 2003, says the Market Intelligence Center (MIC). The research firm reveals that volume grew 68 percent year-on-year to reach about 9.5 million units. LCD monitors remained the main application, comprising 70 percent of volume; 14.1-, 15- and 17-inch sizes accounted for roughly 91 percent of total panel shipments.

MIC further reports that panel for LCD monitor and notebook PC applications aggregately comprised 97 percent of shipments. Mainstream 15- and 17-inch sizes accounted for 92 percent of volume for monitor applications, with 17-inch panel volume growing 25 percent sequentially. Meanwhile, 14.1- and 15-inch notebook PC application sizes accounted for 98 percent of panel shipments for notebook PCs. The 20.1- and 30-inch panels that are the dominant sizes used for LCD TV held 64 percent of LCD TV receiver panel shipments.

Short supply and an increasing share of LCD TV receiver panel is expected to drive shipment value growth in the fourth quarter of 2003. However, the short supply caused by limited capacity expansions and compounded by a dearth of color filter is anticipated to bring about slower fourth quarter growth than seen during the third quarter of 2003.
