LG struggling to meet iPad display demand

LG Display is struggling to keep up with demand for the iPad’s 9.7-inch, LED-backlit IPS LCD screen, according to comments made by the company’s CEO. “Demand (from Apple) keeps growing and we can’t meet it all. Apple may have to delay launches of the iPad for some countries due to tight component supplies and strong demand,” said LG Display CEO Kwon Young-soo. “We are considering increasing production lines for iPad products but overall supply is likely to remain tight until early next year.” Reuters reports that analysts expect iPad demand to accelerate in the coming months; Apple launched the iPad in Austria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Ireland, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand and Singapore today, adding to current distribution in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland, the UK and the US.
