Unknown brands behind bigger LCD TV names drive sales

December 10th, 2007 · No Comments

The third-party LCD TV market is booming, with approximately 23 per cent of all the sold worldwide during Q3 being made by OEM manufacturers. OEM suppliers, all virtually unknown names to consumers, include: AmTRAN, TPV, Jabil, Proview, Quanta, Vestel and Wistron. Buyers of sets from these makers include Hewlett Packard, Grundig, Polaroid, Vizio, ViewSonic and Westinghouse. Outsourcing is rife across the industry as makers struggle to either reduce costs or combat panel shortages.
According to DisplaySearch, Sony sources a percentage of its cheaper BRAVIA sets from both AUO and Samsung, while as much as 60 percent of Philips LCD TV output is also made by OEM suppliers TPV and Jabil.
