AUO, Innolux TV panel shipments drop in July

AUO, Innolux TV panel shipments drop in July

Taipei, Aug. 18 (CNA) 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 Taipei-based 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.
