Sharp says it will sell nine million LCD TVs in 2008

June 7th, 2007 · No Comments

Sharp says that it exceeded its target of six million worldwide sales during its last financial year. The achievement¬† marks an 80 per cent rise in sales YOY. During 2007, it hopes to grow this to nine million screen sales. To meet the growing demand in North America, the brand is adding a second LCD assembly plant, as well as an LCD module factory, to its operation in Mexico. Tony Favia, SEMCA flat-panel senior product manager, says “this new plant allows us to assemble all the pieces of the television in Mexico, assemble them and get them off to our retail partners. The only piece that will come from Japan is the panel itself.”
Sharp’s Gen-8 large-screen LCD panel making facility in Kameyama, Japan, is now entering a third phase of production, increasing its capacity to 60,000 panels a month. By the first quarter of 2008, this will have risen to 90,000 substrates a month, says Sharp.
