Seoul, June 2
International monitor panel shipments declined within the first quarter of the yr, a report confirmed on Wednesday, primarily as a consequence of Samsung Shows exit from the monitor LCD show manufacturing enterprise and a scarcity of semiconductors.
The worldwide monitor panel shipments fell 8.6 per cent on-quarter to 39.9 million items within the January-March interval, in line with the newest report from market researcher TrendForce.
“TrendForce signifies that SDC will exit the monitor LCD panel manufacturing enterprise after it reaches its cargo goal of 1.2 million panels in 1H21,” it mentioned.
