Digitimes Research: China touch panel makers struggling with in-cell technology
Jen-Chieh Yang, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Monday 24 March 2014]

China touch panel makers are making slower-than-expected progress producing in-cell and on-cell touch panel technology during 2014, according to findings from Digitimes Research.

Digitimes Research recently visited FPD China 2014 and found that major touch panel makers such as BOE, Tianma and China Star Optoelectronics Technology (CSOT) are behind in their originally estimated schedule for producing in-cell and on-cell touch panel technology and instead are turning to producing other touch technologies.

Some of those technologies include carbon nanotube, graphene, metal mesh and nano silverwire, which have all undergone mass production as of 2014, said Digitimes Research, adding that the China makers plan to use graphene thin-film touch panels for use in white-box handsets.

Digitimes Research also said that Nippon Electric Glass (NEG) was also in attendance to display advancements in its glass products and is reportedly further cooperating with Taiwan touch panel makers to produce new touch panels in 2014.
