Taiwan's TFT-LCD panel exports gained a 71 percent year-on-year increase in the second quarter of this year, according to Taiwan's Market Intelligence Center (MIC). TFT-LCD panel exports totaled 14.8 million units, up 17.4 percent over first-quarter shipments. Exports revenue amounted to $3.9 billion, topping last year's figures by 129 percent.

Notebook PC and LCD monitor applications absorbed 91 percent of total exports.

The MIC attributes the robust growth to capacity expansions and rising demand for the product. "These dramatic gains were the result of heavy capacity expansions by panel suppliers, as well as urgent demand from customers looking to prepare for the peak retail season, as well as avoid a repeat of the panel shortages that plagued makers during the second half of 2003," according to an MIC representative.
