Research and Markets lowers iPad mini shipment forecast


Even though Apple hasn’t even announced an iPad mini, Research and Markets ( has revised its forecast of shipments for the rumored device down.

The research group says it seems that the industrial materials company, Nissha, is recently suffering low yield rate as a result of their DITO (double-side ITO) pattering process. Also, panel makerAUO’s iPad mini panel mass production schedule may delay to late August. Apple might have recently increased Foxconn’s assembly allocation rate up to 50%. Research and Markets says:

° It’s expecting iPad mini touch panel supply to have potential constraint due to Nissha’s low yield rate issue.

° AUO is likely to delay iPad mini panel volume production schedule to August due to a mura issue.

° Pegatron and Foxconn are projected to supply total 6-8 million units of iPad mini in 2012.
