Digitimes Research: China panel makers to increase global proportion of small-size panel production
Tony Huang, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Thursday 14 November 2013]

China panel makers are expected to make up 33% of global small-size TFT LCD panel production from 2013 onwards, up from 20% in 2012, due to newly constructed lines and expanded production capacity, according to Digitimes Research.

The makers are expected to make significant increases in TFT LCD panel production through to 2016, with BOE expected to see the largest increase in small-size as well as medium-size TFT LCD panel production. Approximately 40-45% of BOE's revenues by 2016 are expected to come from the two segments, said Digitimes Research.

Additionally, the makers are also continuing to see support from the China government and have tariff advantages over panel makers not based in China.

Digitimes Research also estimated that China-based panel makers will make up nearly 17% of PC and TV panel production by 2016.
