AUO, In­nolux TV panel ship­ments drop in July

The China Post - - LOCAL -

AU Op­tron­ics Corp. (AUO, ) and In­nolux Corp. ( ), Tai­wan’s largest two flat-panel mak­ers, saw their TV panel ship­ments drop in July due to lim­ited ca­pac­ity and slow or­ders, a lo­cal re­search firm said Tues­day.

Wit­sView, a di­vi­sion of Taipeibased re­search firm TrendForce Corp., said global TV panel ship­ments to­taled 22.31 mil­lion units in July, down 1 per­cent from the pre­vi­ous month but up 7 per­cent from a year ear­lier.

Among the world’s top six panel mak­ers, Sam­sung Dis­play Co. ben­e­fit­ted con­sid­er­ably from re­turn­ing or­ders for Sam­sung TV sets, and its monthly ship­ments grew 28 per­cent as a re­sult.

China’s BOE Tech­nol­ogy and China Star Op­to­elec­tron­ics Tech­nol­ogy (CSOT) posted 4 per­cent and 5 per­cent growth re­spec­tively in July, based on the ex­pan­sion of their Gen-8.5 ca­pac­ity, which led to higher ship­ments of their 32- inch, 48- inch, and 55- inch pan­els, Wit­sView said.

The other three top panel mak­ers — LG Dis­play Co., AUO and In­nolux — have not in­creased their TV panel ca­pac­ity and failed to gain ad­di­tional or­ders from ma­jor clients, so their July ship­ments de­clined by 13 per­cent, 2 per­cent and 18 per­cent, re­spec­tively, from the pre­vi­ous month, ac­cord­ing to Wit­sView.
