Taipei, Feb. 17 (CNA) Taiwanese flat panel makers shipped the vast majority of the world's ultra-high definition TV panels in 2013, a local research firm said Monday. WitsView said in a research note that Taiwanese makers shipped 2.35 million ultra-high definition 4K2K TV panels last year, accounting for 76 percent of the global market. Jeffy Chen, a senior research manager at WitsView, attributed the high market share to the fact that Taiwanese panel makers "took preemptive opportunities" and managed to develop models of 50 inches or smaller. Other foreign makers, however, have been catching up since the second half of 2013, Chen said. South Korean competitors LG Display Co. and Samsung Display Corp., as well as China's CSOT Corp., have been shipping medium-sized panels since last month, he noted. (By Pan Chi-i and James Lee)
