The closure of China's energy efficient appliance subsidy program on the 1st of June 2013 looks likely to lead to a drop in shipments for the second half of the year, as well as a restoration of competitive pressure along quality and price dimensions for manufacturers selling TVs into the Chinese market. Many observers however expect the Chinese government to implement a new program based on the new energy efficiency standard to be put in place on the 1st of October 2013.
