Apple Shipment Shortfall Prompts Cut in 2011 iPad Shipment ForecastApril 21, 2011Manufacturing issues at Apple Inc. led to a shortfall in iPad 2 shipments in the first quarter, prompting IHS iSuppli to reduce its forecast for 2011. IHS iSuppli now forecasts Apple will ship 39.7 million units for all models of the iPad this year, down from the February forecast of 43.7 million. This represents a reduction of 9.1 percent, or 4.0 million units. Based on IHS iSuppli’s final estimate of 15.1 million units shipped in 2010, IHS iSuppli now predicts total iPad shipments will rise 163.3 percent in 2011, down from the 189.6 percent predicted in February, as presented in the attached figure. IHS iSuppli has slightly increased its 2012 forecast for iPad shipments, to 62.6 million units, up from the previous forecast of 61.6 million.

iSuppli Ups iPad Forecast as Apple’s Component Supply ImprovesOctober 18, 2010Amid indications that iPad component availability is improving, iSuppli Corp. is raising its shipment forecast for the product to 13.8 million units in 2010, up from its July outlook of 12.9 million.
Apple in its earnings announcement for the fiscal fourth said it shipped 4.2 million iPads during the three-month period ending September 25. The pronouncement indicates that Apple has been able to overcome limitations in component supply so that it can ramp up production.
“In its previous iPad forecasts, iSuppli noted that the only constraint on shipment growth now is production—and not demand,” said Rhoda Alexander, director of monitor research for iSuppli.
Apple Set to Dominate Tablet Market Through 2012August 25, 2010Even with a flood of rival products in the works, Apple Inc.’s iPad is unlikely to face a viable competitor until 2011, allowing the company to maintain a dominant share in the tablet market at least through 2012, according to market research firm iSuppli Corp.
The iPad will account for an overwhelming 74.1 percent of global tablet shipments in 2010, with the remaining 25.9 percent consisting of a mix of older PC-type tablet products and competitive slates. Despite the arrival of the first real iPad competitors in 2011, Apple still will maintain a prevailing 70.4 percent share of shipments, iPad research from iSuppli bears out.

Global production of touch screen modules for use in computers will soar to 117.9 million units in 2014, up from 15.8 million in 2010, iSuppli predicts.
“ISVs will be key partners in the touch revolution,” said Rhoda Alexander, director of monitor research for iSuppli.
iSuppli Hikes iPad ForecastJuly 20, 2010Amid indications that Apple Inc. is ratcheting hiking up its iPad production targets to meet booming demand, iSuppli Corp. is ratcheting up its shipment forecast as well.

“The iPad is shaping up to be the ‘Tickle Me Elmo’ of the 2010 holiday season, with product demand expected to vastly exceed available supply,” said Rhoda Alexander, director of monitor research for iSuppli.

Sustainable Practices and Technologies Gain Traction in Global Display IndustryMarch 09, 2009Four out of five global electronic display companies have adopted environmentally-sustainable practices in their businesses, according to a recent iSuppli Corp. survey, indicating the greening of the display industry has moved beyond the talk phase and into actual practice.

A total of 83 percent of respondents stated that their companies employ “green office” practices, such as recycling and using motion sensors to deactivate unused lights.

While such efforts often are presented as environmentally responsible initiatives, they also deliver bottom-line benefits for corporations participating in the LCD, plasma and other display-oriented and high-tech industries, according to iSuppli Corp.
