Sharp Corp. and LG Electronics Inc. (066570) will increase production of Apple Inc. (AAPL) iPad displays in April after shipping the parts in smaller quantities currently, researcher IHS said in a report.
Samsung Electronics Co. now accounts for most production of the key component of Apple’s new tablet computer, the researcher said.
“It is likely that the volume shipments of the new iPad display are currently coming from Samsung,” IHS said. LG and Sharp “are expected to ramp up volume production of new iPad displays in April.”
The new report was aimed at clarifying earlier research on which suppliers are producing the display for the iPad, IHS said.
