Press Release


  • Upstream First-Tier Suppliers in LCD Industry Will Face Greater Competitive Pressure from Chinese Rivals in 2017, Says TrendForce
    12-19-2016 / TrendForce
    WitsView, a division of TrendForce, reports that upstream LCD component suppliers based in China have significantly expanded their manufacturing capabilities through 2016 and will become stronger competitors against their international first-tier counterparts in 2017. As more advanced LCD panel fabs (Gen-8 and above) are being built in China and begin operation, local suppliers of materials and components such as glass substrates and polarizers are gearing up to fulfill their demand.

  • TrendForce Forecasts LCD TV Shipments for 2017 to Expand by 2.5% Annually
    12-06-2016 / Ricky Lin
    Shipments of LCD TV sets worldwide for 2016 are estimated to grow by 1.9% annually to around 220 million units, according to the latest analysis by WitsView, a division of TrendForce. At the start of 2017, the U.S. consumer market will be bumpy in the short term due to the results of the country’s presidential election. If the U.S. Federal Reserve decides to raise the key interest rates next year, domestic consumer spending will recover and the country will again play a major role in sustaining global TV sales. WitsView forecasts that global TV shipments for 2017 will reach 225 million units, up 2.5% compared with the prior year. [ more ]
  • Peak Season Demand Expands Global LCD TV Shipments by 14.4% Sequentially in Third Quarter, Says TrendForce
    10-27-2016 / Ricky Lin
    WitsView, a division of TrendForce, reports global shipments of LCD TV sets in the third quarter of 2016 totaled around 57.15 million units, representing a sequential quarterly increase of 14.4% and a year-on-year increase of 5.8%. TV set shipments benefitted from peak season demand in the U.S. and Europe as well as festivities in China (i.e. the Mid-Autumn Festival and the National Day holidays). China’s vigorous housing market also has a positive effect on the domestic TV sales in the recent period. [ more ]
  • Shipments of Mid-Size LCD TV Sets for 2016 Are Lower Than Initially Projected, Says TrendForce
    10-04-2016 / Ricky Lin
    Soaring prices during the second half of 2016 and the planned closure of Samsung Display’s L7-1 fab have created anxieties about supply shortages in the LCD panel market, according to the latest analysis by WitsView, a division of TrendForce. Due to these factors, the share of 40- to 49-inch models in the combined LCD TV set shipments from the top 15 branded vendors for 2016 will be smaller than the projection made at the start of the year by 3.8 percentage points. Hence, the mainstream size bracket of LCD TV sets is unlikely to make the transition from the 32-inch to the 40- to 45-inch, or the mid-size segment. [ more ]
  • Taiwan’s Display Industry First to Mass Produce 8K TV Panels, According to TrendForce
    08-24-2016 / TrendForce
    The mass production of the long-anticipated 8K resolution TV sets will formally begin the second half of this year. WitsView, a division of TrendForce, reports that a Taiwanese panel maker is first to be approved by international TV brands as a supplier of 8K TV panels. TV brands hope that the market release of 8K TV sets will generate interests among consumers in the near future. [ more ]
  • Rapidly Rising Panel Prices to Impact Branded LCD TV Shipments in Upcoming Peak Season, Says TrendForce
    08-04-2016 / Ricky Lin
    WitsView, a division of TrendForce, reports that the global shipments of LCD TV sets in the second quarter of 2016 totaled around 48.68 million units, up 1.2% over the prior quarter. Demand generated from sporting events (e.g. the UEFA Championship and the upcoming Olympic Games) was not effective in boosting shipments as expected earlier. At the same time, traditional or established domestic TV brands in China saw a general slide in their shipments. Hence, the global shipment result showed only a very marginal quarterly growth.

  • TrendForce Projects Chinese and South Korean Brands to Take 70% of Worldwide LCD TV Market This Year Following LeEco’s Acquisition of VIZIO
    07-27-2016 / TrendForce
    With the domestic market approaching saturation, branded Chinese LCD TV vendors see overseas expansion as the only means to grow their market shares and raise their brand recognition. The latest example of this approach is the acquisition of the U.S.-based consumer electronics maker VIZIO by LeEco, a rising Internet brand in the Chinese LCD TV market. Reports of VIZIO being up for sale gained traction after Foxconn’s acquisition of Sharp, and the $2 billion deal with LeEco was finally announced on July 27. [ more ]
  • Global LCD TV Shipments Fell 20.9% in First Quarter Due to Weak Demand, Says TrendForce
    04-27-2016 / Ricky Lin
    Global shipments of LCD TV sets in the first quarter of 2016 totaled about 48.32 million units, according to the latest report by WitsView, a division of TrendForce. This figure represents a 20.9% quarterly decline and also a 6.3% year-on-year drop. In addition to first quarter being the off season in the U.S. and Europe, the uncertain global economic outlook and the saturation of the Chinese TV market have put significant pressure on the overall LCD TV shipments.
