June 14 (Bloomberg) -- AU Optronics Corp. expects prices of display panels used in computers to climb further this month, driven by demand for commercial laptops, Michael Tsai, general manager of IT products said today.
Prices of PC panels have already climbed 5 percent to 6 percent this quarter from the first quarter, and will meet the company’s guidance for a “high single digit” percentage rise, Tsai said. Demand for touch-panels used in tablet devices is strong and supply remains in shortage, he said.
