DisplaySearch: TFT LCD price reduction to continue in Q1 2003

According to the latest report from DisplaySearch, TFT LCD prices continue to reduce worldwide. This is expected to last in Q1 2003 as well, making about 10% or more. Korean LCD makers inform they are ready for the wholesale prices for 15" TFT LCDs to reduce from $186 to $163, more than 60% below the $273 peak level, marked in Q2 2002. 17" monitors are also forecasted to get cheaper in Q1 2003 – from $267 to $232 wholesale.

Analysts say the reason is the "battle" of the leading TFT LCD makers, mostly LG.Philips LCD and Samsung Electronics, revising the market after the launch of their new 5G fabs. Besides, still more Taiwanese and Japanese companies invest into 5G production. Analysts believe all this will result in further price and profitability reduction.

According to provisional data, the worldwide TFT LCD market will make about 18.15 million units in Q4 2002. It’s interesting that it made just 16.28 million units in Q3, that’s even lower than 17.61 million units of Q2. However, this looks different in the money equivalent: $4.41 billion in Q3, $3.97 billion in Q4, and about —8% in Q1 2003, down to $3.66 billion. South Korean makers will remain the leaders with 41.6% market share, Taiwanese will own 31.8% and Japanese makers – only 26.6%.
