In the first half of the year demand for LCD TVs was better than expected, according to market-watcher DisplaySearch. The company raised its full-year shipment forecast from 120 million to 127 million on the back of strong demand in developed nations and a faster than expected transition to LCD TVs in emerging countries like China. Demand from China is expected to be almost 24 million this year, DisplaySearch said.
