Tablet Display Market More Than Doubles in Q1


Booming demand for low-priced 7.x-inch products helped shipments of panels used in media tablets to more than double in in the first quarter, according to an the new report from information and analytics provider IHS.

Global shipments of capacitive touch screen displays for media tablets amounted to 45.2 million units in the first quarter, IHS said. This represented a 111.9 percent increase compared to the same period last year, more than doubling the 21.3 million total in the first quarter of 2012. While shipments were down 13 percent compared to the fourth quarter, such a seasonal decline is typical for electronics in the first quarter.

"Sales of smaller-sized tablets are rising at a rapid rate, driving shipments of capacitive touch screen displays ranking in size from 7- to 8-inches," said Duke Yi, senior manager for display components and materials research at IHS. "These tablets are inexpensive, with pricing at $199, making them popular among consumers. With the level of competition increasing in both the tablet and panel markets, pricing is expected to continue to decline, boosting shipments of displays and end products in this size range."

With the increasing number of panel makers, the average selling price (ASP) of tablet PC touch panel modules is falling at a fast rate. In the first quarter of 2013, average pricing of 7.0-inch tablet touch panels fell to $15.60, down a sharp 16 percent from $18.60 in the first quarter of 2012. Pricing for 7.0-inch touch panels dropped by 7.5 percent from $15.60 in the fourth quarter, the largest sequential percentage decrease of any size.

At the end of the first quarter of 2013, display supplier TPK achieved a 29 percent market share in the tablet touch screen market because of its strong cadre of leading stable clients, such as Apple, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Microsoft and Asus?including the Nexus 7. This gave the company the leading position in the tablet touch panel market in terms of unit shipments.

The runner up was Iljin Display, the biggest supplier of tablet PC touch panels for Samsung Electronics, which accounted for 15.5 percent of market shipments in the first quarter of 2013, up from 7.5 percent in the first quarter of 2012.

GIS, the touch panel subsidiary of Foxconn Technology Group, is steadily increasing its supply of touch panels for Apple's iPad and iPad mini. At the same time, GIS is supplying 8.9-inch touch panels for the Amazon Kindle Fire HD.

On the strength of these deals, GIS in the first quarter attained a 13.3 percent share of shipments, up from 12.8 percent in the fourth quarter, and just 7.5 percent in the first quarter of 2012.

Wintek once held the second place in the market because it shared in supplying of touch displays for the Apple iPad with TPK. However, with the rise of GIS, Wintek's share has fallen. The company's market share plummeted to 8.5 percent in the first quarter of this year.

Meanwhile, China's O-Film quickly reacted to the low-priced 7-inch tablet PC touch market, resulting in the company making great strides quarter after quarter. The company at the end of the first quarter in 2013.arrived in Top 5 with an 8.5 percent market share.
