Digitimes Research: China panel makers continue to improve their panel technology
Jason Yang, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Thursday 28 March 2013]

China-based panel makers BOE, Tianma Micro-electronics and China Star Optoelectronics Technology (CSOT) are showing increasing signs of improved technology and are likely to start producing more high-end panel products in 2013.

The panel makers currently use a-Si TFT technology to produce Ultra HD (3840 by 2160) TV panels but are looking into using IGZO technology in 2013 instead. The makers are also aiming to release 400ppi smartphone panels during the year.

BOE and Tianma are also looking to mass produce LTPS TFT LCD panels followed by AMOLED panels in 2014. Additionally, Tianma is developing SFT wide-angle display technology while CSOT is also pursuing HVA technology for use in TV panel applications.

The panel makers are also expanding their production capacity, and are continuing to receive funding from the China government, indicating that China is increasing its role as a major player in the panel industry, according to Digitimes Research.
