Digitimes Research: Greater China on-cell touch panel shipments expected to grow 91.4% in 2H14
Jen-Chieh Yang, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Wednesday 27 August 2014]

On-cell touch panel shipments from makers in Greater China are expected to grow 91.4% in the second half of 2014 compared to the first half of the year as makers greatly improve production yields, leading to pricing and technological advancements. Of the percentage, about 80% will be from Taiwan makers, according to Digitimes Research.

Overall shipments of ITO replacement touch panel solutions, including on-cell, metal mesh and silver nanowire from makers in Greater China are expected to grow in the second half due to improved yields as well as to increased development between Greater China touch panel makers and TFT LCD makers towards creating new solutions.

More notebook vendors are looking to use metal mesh technology in notebook and AIO applications, which was pushed by China-based O-Film in 2013. The technology is now spreading into more large-size applications and even more small- to medium-size products. J Touch and Young Fast are among some of the Taiwan makers who are expected to push metal mesh touch products for such applications further into the market.

Additionally, as TPK and Nissha increase cooperation and improve conductivity for the technology the two makers expect to expand production of silver nanowire touch technology in the second half, primarily for 5-6-inch applications supplied to vendors in China for entry-level and mid-range handsets, added Digitimes Research.
