DSCC’s employs a methodology which leverages its supply chain relationships as much as possible.
- On pricing, we survey buyers as well as sellers.
- On panel shipments, we survey panel suppliers, brands as well as component suppliers to ensure there is enough supply to meet demand. By knowing glass input as well as panel shipments, this also allows us to quantify yields.
- Our shipment forecasts are always based on both supply and demand.
- Our fab timing and equipment supplier market share data leverages official PO filings in Korea and equipment awards in China.
- For every display application, in addition to tracking supply and demand, we also quantify costs, prices and margins and factor into account regional differences.
