Chinese panel manufacturers are aggressively expanding production capacity in order to seize market share, but this has also caused an oversupply of panels and a sharp drop in prices. However, recently, Chinese panel makers have begun to reduce the production of liquid crystal displays (LCD) to prevent the collapse of panel prices. Analysts expect that LCD panel prices are expected to rebound from early next year.
