Japan-based home appliance makers such as Hitachi, Toshiba, and JVC have recently increased their assembly orders with Taiwan makers, with the goal of improving their competitiveness in the market, market sources indicate.

The sources stated that Tatung will produce large-size LCD TVs, ranging in size from 26-, 32- and 37-in for Japan-based Hitachi. Tatung will begin shipping the products to Hitachi staring from the second half of 2005, according to the Chinese-language Economic Daily News.

The company has already been delivering 42- and 50-in PDP TVs to Hitachi since the beginning of May.

Since April, Toshiba has also been outsourcing assembly of its 20-in LCD TVs with Taiwan makers. According to Toshiba, the company has been able to lower its price for the segment to NT$19,900 (approx. U.S. $635) and has so far achieved satisfactory sales.

JVC, which is currently working with Tatung for production of 17- and 23-in LCD TVs, also plans to outsource assembly of its 37- and 40-in LCD TVs to Taiwan-based makers, according to Hiroshi Takeda, president of JVC Taiwan.

Taiwan makers also produce all Panasonic LCD TVs that are sold in the Taiwan market, the sources pointed out. (DigiTimes.com)
