News from Japan this week points to further pressure on LCD prices. Manufacturing.Net and the Associated Press reported yesterday that Corning's LCD glass output will be lower than expected due to the impact of an earthquake in Japan. After the earthquake, Corning suspended operation at its Shizuoka factory. While the factory wasn't physically damaged, the earthquake caused the misalignment of equipment and the indefinite suspension of production. This development at one of the major glass substrate suppliers will almost certainly force another round of LCD panel price increases.
