Taiwan-based AU Optronics (AUO), Innolux and HannStar Display together shipped 73.755 million large-size (9-inch and above) TFT-LCD panels in third-quarter 2021, growing 2.54% sequentially, and are forecast to ship 71.843 million units in fourth-quarter 2021, slipping 2.59% sequentially, according to DIGITIMES Research.
Because prices for TV panels have been dropping since July 2021, AUO and Innolux saw third-quarter shipments for such panels decrease 2.1% and 6.1% respectively sequentially, DIGITIMES Research indicates.
In contrast, AUO's third-quarter shipments for notebook-use and monitor-use panels rose 6.0% and 0.2% respectively sequentially, while Innolux's grew 10.4% and 6.0% respectively.
AUO is expected to remain as the globally third-largest maker of monitor-use LCD panels in fourth-quarter 2021, while Innolux will maintain its global status as the second-largest maker of tablet-use panels and the fourth largest for monitor panels.
