Panels for 26- and 32-inch LCD TVs are set to stay in short supply in the second half of December, due to high demand from China. Furthermore limited new capacity from panel makers means that these shortages are likely to persist into the New Year.

Although the peak Christmas shopping period has passed in North America and Europe, panel makers are still unlikely to meet the demand from China, due to the Lunar New Year holiday in February.

Demand for 37-, 40-, and 42-inch LCD TV panels, however, has eased.
