Expecting a higher demand rate this year, Taiwan-based panel makers Chunghwa Pictures Ltd (CPT) and Hannstar Display Corp. announced plans of ramping up their capacities in the super-slim notebook panel segment.

According to CPT, demand for notebook panels may fluctuate in the first half of the year but the slim notebook panels sector is anticipated to rebound by the latter half. Further, the company says that the global demand expects to reach 55.6 million units this year, up almost 20 percent from last year. CPT will begin volume shipping super-slim notebook panels from its 4.5G facility this year.

Meanwhile, HannStar has begun shipping 14.1in, 0.5mm-thin notebook panels. The company is also cooperating with a Japan-based manufacturer for orders of 12in, 0.4mm-thin notebook panels. These thin notebook panels will be sourced at its 3G plants, which previously manufactured monitor panels.
