Report: 32" LCD TV panels facing tight supply

Despite ramping capacity at major next-generation plants, supply for 32" LCD TV panels currently can only meet 90 - 95 percent of global demand due to a shortage of cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFLs), according to Taiwan-based TFT LCD panel makers, as quoted by the Taiwan edition of the Chinese-language Apple Daily.

Although AU Optronics (AUO) is currently seeing more than 200,000 32" LCD TV panel orders every month, the company can only ship 180,000-190,000 panels, industry sources were cited in the paper as saying.
