Taiwan LCDShipment volume of Taiwanese LCD TVs was around 8.25 million units in the first quarter of 2013, down 20.6% compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, according to the Market Intelligence & Consulting Institute (MIC).


Industry is affected by the weak seasonal demand for TVs and shipment value in the first quarter of 2013 reached $29.44 billion, a 20.5% decline. MIC's senior analyst Pei-Fen Hsieh points that despite the evident decline in contract manufacturing orders placed by Japanese brands, the Taiwanese LCD TV industry still managed to see a 3.4% year-on-year growth in the first quarter of 2013, thanks to the increased shipment to European and Chinese branded vendors.

The decline in shipment volume of the Taiwanese LCD TV industry in the first quarter of 2013 was in line with the decline in shipment value, proven by the fact that LCD TV Average Selling Price (ASP) remained relatively stable in the first quarter, said MIC. This was mainly ascribed to the increased in shipment share of large-area LCD TV models, which successfully offset the sustained declines in prices of all LCD TV models in other panel sizes.

Looking ahead to the second quarter of 2013, with several new models to be newly debuted by branded vendors, Taiwanese LCD TV manufacturers are expected to collaborate with channel distributors for product deployments.

It is estimated that shipment volume of the Taiwanese LCD TV industry will reach around 9.22 million units whereas its shipment value will arrive at around $32.84 billion. Both are expected to witness an over 10% sequential growth in the second quarter of 2013.

Shipment volume of the large-area LCD panel industry topped around 52.8 million units in the first quarter of 2013, down 14.6% sequentially and 0.5% year-on-year. Compared to the fourth quarter of 2012, shipment volume of notebook PC panels also declined 18% while shipment value arrived at around $4.69 billion in the first quarter of 2013, down 16.5%.
