The TFT LCD glut which caused notebook-size panel prices to fall in Q1 2001 is ending and screen prices are expected to start rising by Q4.

But before that happens prices will have fallen by 23 per cent in the current quarter ending 30 June, following the 17 per cent plunge in Q1.

According to DisplaySearch, a research specialist in the display market, price reductions for large-area TFT LCDs will slow in Q3 and then rise slightly in Q4 for 10-inch to 15-inch panels.

The market surplus for large-area TFT LCDs will narrow to less than five per cent in the second half of 2001.

But DisplaySearch says that the glut of small/medium TFT LCDs, for PDAs and mobile phones etc., will continue through the first half of 2002. Weak demand means a surplus in excess of 20 per cent in Q4 and Q1 2002 before tightening to single digits in the second half of 2002. ®
