Supply of 5G and 6G glass substrates is 20% short of demand as Taiwan LCD panel makers have begun to take deliveries ahead of schedule amid concerns about component shortage in the second half of 2009, according to industry sources.

Panel makers have seen utilization improving on surging demand for 32-inch TV panels and 18.5- and 21.5-inch widescreen monitor panels, the sources explained, adding that other components such as driver ICs, PCBs, and LED backlight modules are also expected to be in shortage in the second half of this year.

Corning Display Technologies Taiwan (CDTT) commented that demand for glass substrates is stronger than expected. With customers continuing to ramp up output to meet the rising demand, it said Corning is in the process of restarting idled tanks in Taiwan and it takes time for tank relighting. CDTT said it is working on maximizing output to produce more glass for customers.
