Windows XP's Retirement Propelled Stronger-than-Expected March LCD Monitor Shipment

2014/04/30

Display

The March 2014 LCD monitor shipment by brands and SI makers surged by 206% and 321% respectively, according to the survey by WitsView, the display research division of TrendForce The surge was mainly attributed to the lower base period for February shipment, topped with several brands actively pushing for sales performance for the financial quarter-end in March “As for regional trends, Microsoft halted support for Windows XP OS, resulting in sales increase within the North American enterprise market, further aiding in healthy growth for American brands’ March shipment,” says WitsView research manager Anita Wang” Many makers in the Chinese market prepared in advance for the set inventory as they were cautious about the tight supply in the region The sales of low-priced models were also ideal in the Asia-Pacific region, and all the factors mentioned above propelled the March shipment to be stronger than expected”    Historically, the Q2 monitor shipment has been supported by the commercial market The desktop replacement sales due to Microsoft ending support for XP indirectly contributed to this year’s growing commercial market LCD monitor sales Moreover, Microsoft’s subsidy policy on the AIO models priced under US$349 also forces brands to remain cautious and begin restocking Wang indicates that the issue gained traction in March, spilling over to the Notebook segment, resulting in stronger than expected Q1 shipment, which is expected to continue through Q2 However, the shipment volume is still constrained with the LCD monitor panels remaining in tight supply with the weak consumer market With both positive and negative factors in place, WitsView projects a Q2 shipment comparable to the level in Q1  It is worth noting that, due to TV brands’ strong panel restocking in April, the LCD monitor panel capacity is continuously restricted In addition to the 215”W panels, large-sized panels such as 23”W IPS, 236”W and 24”W TN panels are all experiencing supply gaps With the panel supply shrinking, some sizes show shipments difficulties Moreover, as SI makers usually have low panel inventory, they need to prepare for panels in advance Figure1: Top Ten LCD Monitor Brands and SI makers’ Shipment Change Source: WitsView, Apr-14

Based on the survey by WitsView, the display research division of the global intelligence provider TrendForce, the global top ten LCD monitor brands’ shipment in December 2013 declined sharply 118% MoM and grew slightly from the same period last year as LCD monitor brands had distributed goods in advance to retailers in October and November for the year-end holidays and held conservative procurement for the following slow season in the US and Europe SI makers’ December shipment dipped 58% MoM and trimmed 69% YoY due to SI makers’ inventory level adjustment for the year-end financial inventory settlement and some panel makers’ delayed panel shipment       WitsView research manager Anita Wang indicates as brands in Q4 last year aggressively boosted shipments and the end demand digested slowly, a huge amount of inventories accumulated at the retailer end and the Q1 inventory digestion is the key point to obverse Panel supplies for certain sizes and spec start to get tight in Q1, affecting the LCD monitor set shipment LCD monitor SI makers’ Q1 shipments are impacted by both the labor shortage and fewer working days during the Lunar New Year as previous years as well as brands’ weakening pull-in momentum WitsView expects a more than 10% QoQ decline in both brands’ and SI makers’Q1 LCD monitor shipments Figure: Top Ten LCD Monitor Brands’ and SI Makers’ Quarterly Shipment

TrendForce: 2014 Wide-Viewing-Angle LCD Monitor Sees 25-30% Penetration Rate

2013/12/23

Consumer Electronics / Display

According to the survey by WitsView, the display research division of the global intelligence provider TrendForce,the 2013 LCD monitor shipment including AIO is around 158 million units, dipping 5% YoY The declining trend will continue in 2014 with a shipment of 150 million units, dropping 51% YoY Among those, the LCD monitor shipment is around 134 million units, declining 63% YoY, and the AIO shipment is 16 million units, surging 67% YoY What needs to be observed is panel makers turn aggressive on the wide-viewing-angle panel production, and the wide-viewing-angle shows a penetration rate as high as 30% of the LCD monitors in 2014 WitsView assistant research manager Anita Wang indicates that the 2014 LCD monitor shipment drops 63% mainly because brands hold conservative BP, and the constrained LCD monitor panel supply will influence the annual shipment as panel makers adjust capacities The conventional monitor segment is declining constantly due to the erosion of smart mobile devices, and to maintain profits, most of makers from upstream to downstream  develop  niche products Some brands work with Microsoft’s new Windows 8 platform to launch touch LCD monitors but gain unideal sales for the three following reasons: 1 Windows 8 requires a minimum of five-point touch to meet its touch screen standard, brands have to use the projective capacitive touch module, and with a larger size than a tablet, it leads to more than twice the production cost of a regular monitor as well as an excessive end selling price    2 The use distance is wider for a LCD monitor than a tablet and a NB, the cost should be increased even the problem can be solved with a holder able to be adjusted horizontal; 3 Windows 8 stirs a weaker-than-expected replacement effect, and the touch LCD monitor loses the ground in the first sales Contrarily, the smart LCD monitor equipped with Android OS is more marketable despite its cost is twice to that of a regular LCD monitor As it has basic computer functions in addition to the touch, it can be used to connect internet without a central unit It has multiple times of sales to the touch LCD monitors but needs more time to promote By comparison, the wide-viewing-angle LCD monitor gains more traction among consumers with a 10% penetration rate in 2013With panel makers growing active on the production of wide-viewing-angle in 2014, the wide-viewing-angle penetration rate will reach 25-30% of the LCD monitor shipment On top of wide-viewing-angle products, panel makers plan to develop high-resolution LCD monitor panels As the high-resolution fashion spreads to the LCD monitor segment and AIO market, the high-end lineups will be enriched and generate new sales   Global LCD Monitor Shipment (Million Units)
