LCD Shipments Stable Last Quarter - Big Companies Post Big Losses

Posted Fri Aug 26, 2011 at 07:30 AM PDT by Dick Ward

It was a pretty dire quarter for everyone, except for Panasonic, who cleaned up quite nicely.

Samsung is at the top of the heap for LCD shipments in the last quarter. They've still got a 22 percent share of the LCD market, but they ended up shipping 10 percent fewer sets than they did last year. It's a pretty big blow that's on par with Sony's 11 percent loss this quarter.

LCD sets in general are sitting at a one percent growth over last quarter and a six percent increase over last year. It's not a huge increase, but it's headed in the right direction which is the big thing. A few of the individual companies were up too. Sharp is looking at a six percent increase year to year.

Panasonic is up significantly over last quarter - a total of 55 percent. It's only a two percent year-to-year increase though.
