Digitimes Research: China second-tier panel makers shift away from production of large-size panels to small- to medium-size panels
Tony Huang, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Friday 27 September 2013]

Second-tier panel makers in China such as Tianma Micro-electronics, CEC-Panda LCD Technology, and Infovision Optoelectronics are continuing to shift their production away from large-size panels to small- to medium-size panel production, according to Digitimes Research.

Tianma is moving more towards high value-added production by increasing the volume of smartphone panels it produces as well as further investing in TFT LCD panel lines. Additionally, Tianma has a 5.5G line that will be testing AMOLED production in the second half of 2013, said Digitimes Research.

Infovision is also moving towards small- to medium-size panel production while steering away from notebook panel production, most notably in the third quarter of 2013.

CEC Panda meanwhile has been largely focused on TV and monitor panel production. However, the company's holding company China Electronics Corporation (CEC) has signed an agreement with Sharp to invest in an 8.5G line that will go into production in 2015 to produce tablet panels and high-resolution PC panels, noted Digitimes Research.
