DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/zhz5kd/ipad_3_production) has announced the addition of the "iPad 3 production shipments are projected to climb up to 12-13M units in 2Q12" report to their offering.
We project total iPad production shipments to rise up to -18M units in 2Q12 driven by strong iPad 3 shipment growth. This also indicates that LGD and Sharp may continue to increase their iPad 3 panel supply in the next 1-3 months. In contrast, iPad 2 production forecast appears to slow down although Apple has reduced the street price during product lifecycle transition. On the other hand, total iPhone 4S shipments are expected to decrease to -18-19M units in 2Q12 meaning that iPhone 4S demand maybe also lower than expected in the next 1-3 months.
Isaiah's Key Takeaways from Our Research:
1. Total iPad shipments are expected to grow up to -18-19M units in 2Q12.
2. Expecting iPhone 4S demand to drop by double-digit QoQ in 2Q12.
3. 7.85 iPad mini is expected to enter mass production in early 4Q12.
