Some LCD brands have already stocked up beforehand as well as raised inventory levels of completed devices in North American regions. Adding the fact that brands are stuck with relatively high inventories of both panels and completed devices as a result of low demand, brands are reducing panel procurement for 3Q, causing restocking momentum to weaken.DisplayThu, 11 Jul 2019 06:10:00 +00003272 at http://www.trendforce.comHuawei Ban Temporarily Relaxed; Whether LTPS Panel Demand May Recover Requires Further Observation, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3271.htmlWitsView , a division of TrendForce , says that demand for LTPS devices were previously expected to grow steadily in 2019 and cause utilization for LTPS production lines to climb. But due to the effects of the Huawei ban, LTPS area produced is expected to shrink starting from 3Q, with the annual area produced expected to fall by about 7.2% compared to 2018, arriving at just 8.3 million square-meters. This is the first time in recent years that LTPS area faces the risk of decline. However, it is worth observing whether panel demand will recover swiftly as the US relaxes for now the sales ban on Huawei in the wake of G20.DisplayTue, 09 Jul 2019 06:08:00 +00003271 at http://www.trendforce.comTV Panel Prices Plunge in June, with No Signs of Stopping in July, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3269.htmlAccording to WitsView, a division of TrendForce, although the US-China trade dispute reached a ceasefire after the Trump-Xi meeting at G20, TV brands have been engaging in preemptive stocking in 2Q due to fears of a 25% tariff to be placed into effect in 3Q as well as Samsung Display's (SDC) original decision to shut down their Gen 8.5 L8-1-1 plant. This caused TV panel prices to plunge in June to an unforeseeable extent.Consumer ElectronicsFri, 05 Jul 2019 05:34:00 +00003269 at http://www.trendforce.comPanel Prices May Crash Below Cash Costs, Pressuring Panel Manufacturers in 2H, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3266.htmlAccording to Witsview, a division of TrendForce, despite the relaxation of the US-China trade dispute in the wake of G20, demand for various end products in 2H will remain in a conservative mood until the situation becomes clear through subsequent negotiations, leading to a less-than-expected restocking demand for panels. Suppliers are already finding trouble profiting in 2Q due to continuously sliding panel prices. If the US-China negotiations hit a wall again, the continued trade conflict may drag down sales in the peak seasons of 2H. This may drastically raise the chances of panel prices crashing below cash costs and pressure businesses for the second half-year, forcing them to decide whether to reduce production.DisplayMon, 01 Jul 2019 09:13:00 +00003266 at http://www.trendforce.comMajor Production Bases China and Mexico Both Facing the Threat of Tariffs, Casting a Shadow on This Year's TV Market Development, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3254.htmlAs worries spring up in the market about whether the 25% tariff arising from the US-China trade war would impact TV markets, US President Trump has further announced on May 30 that he plans to levy a 5% tariff on Mexico's imports to the US on June 10 due to illegal immigrant issues. The tax will keep escalating and hit 25% in October. WitsView , a division of TrendForce , suggests that the tariff problems to follow may severely impact US market confidence and drag down global TV shipments for 2019.DisplayTue, 04 Jun 2019 05:54:00 +00003254 at http://www.trendforce.comChina TV Brands Fear Not the Developing Dispute, Shrugging Off Headwinds in Shipments 1Q, Says TrendForcehttps://press.trendforce.com/node/view/3249.htmlWitsView , a division of TrendForce , has it in its latest report that shipments of TV brands worldwide came to 49.87 million units for 1Q19, a QoQ slide of 24.6% and a YoY bump of 0.5%.
