DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/c4gn26/ipad_3_panel) has announced the addition of the "iPad 3 panel production volumes are projected to climb up to total ~10M units in 2Q12" report to their offering.
It looks like that LGD and Sharp might have been recently qualified by Apple in terms of iPad 3 panel production. We understood that these two panel makers may enter small volume productions in March and expect to ramp up to -800K-1M and 500-600K units per month respectively in the next 1-3 months. With that, we forecast overall iPad 3 panel production forecast to increase up to -10M units in 2Q12, showing around 67% QoQ growth.

1. LGD might have entered iPad 3 panel volume productions in early March.
