View Full Version : Industry Shortage for glass used in laptops and PC monitors?

01-15-2013, 02:46 PM
I am a procurement professional in the academic/education sector. We are experiencing significant delays in the deployment of PC monitors and laptops through all of our standard distribution centers and Manufacturers. The feedback from our sources indicates that the extended lead times (sometimes up to 1+ months) are due to an issue in the supply chain for the glass component used in both monitors and laptops. I haven't seen any mention of it publicly. I believe there are only two MFRs out of Taiwan and both are unable to meet current demand. Can anyone confirm this and/or provide additional supporting documentation? Much appreciated - Marissa
