Taipei, March 19 (CNA) China’s BOE Technology Group (京東方) replaced 2016031900141Taiwan-based flat panel maker Innolux Corp. (群創) to become the third largest TV screen supplier in the world in February, according a research report released by market information advisory firm TrendForce Corp. (集邦科技).

The strong showing made by BOE reflected the Chinese firm’s improvement in its yield rate which boosted its TV panel shipments last month, the research report said, adding that BOE bucked the downturn of global TV screen shipments in the month.

In February, BOE shipped 3.24 million TV panels, up 1.2 percent from a month earlier, while Innolux, which felt the pinch of the impact resulting from a strong earthquake hitting southern Taiwan in the month, shipped 2.66 million TV screens, down 21.9 percent from a month earlier.

TrendForce said that BOE has also benefited from its efforts to maintain production capacity of the benchmark 32-inch TV panels in the month.     [FULL  STORY]
