A CHINESE SITE claimed that the glass substrates used to manufacture LCD monitors and TVs will be in short supply this year because Corning will do maintenance work on its furnaces.
Whether that matters or not is a different matter – Corning won’t want to close everything down all at once, we’re pretty sure about that.
The report, referred to in Digitimes, claims that panel makers are turning to Japanese manufacturers but prices of substrates are higher from that source. µ
* Digitimes also reports there will likely be shortages of 17-inch, and wide screen 19-inch and 22-inch panels during 2008.
