BOE and Tianma mobile panel shipments, 2010-13 (k units)

The China flat panel industry has been booming in recent years as demand for consumer devices has been on the rise in China and local panel makers have also received both government financial support and tariff benefits. With consumer demand expected to remain strong in China, local makers are expanding their production capacity and increasing their utilization rates, allowing some local first-tier makers to achieve profit levels approaching that of leading global panel makers.

This Digitimes Research Special Report analyzes the trends affecting China's flat panel makers in terms of their customers, production capacity and technology trends from 2013-2016, and also provides an analysis of the progress for self-sufficiency by the makers, in accordance with local government financial support.
