Trends in the commercial development of TD-LTE
Special Report | November 14, 2012
With the Long Term Evolution (LTE) standard continuing to develop, international differences in plannings and frequency allocation timetables have resulted in different frequency bands being used in different countries. The China-led TD-LTE standard's greater efficiency in terms of frequency spectrum usage has attracted the attention of carriers in a number of other countries. Digitimes Research projects that the global number of TD-LTE users will reach 97.5 million by 2016, accounting for 23% of all LTE users globally.

Trends in the Smart TV industry
Special Report | October 25, 2012
Smart TV services use networks and "smart technology" to deliver a new viewing experience, as well as non-video services for the digital home. Definitions of "smart technology" have changed from simply referring to the ability to connect to the Internet and provide web browsing, to include the ability to download and run apps. Today, smart technology is taken to include sophisticated interface technologies and multiscreen interaction. All of these areas, along with OTT services, will influence future development trends for Smart TV.
2013 Greater China IC foundry industry forecast
Special Report | October 8, 2012
Digitimes Research predicts that the output value of China's IC foundry industry will reach US$3.29 billion in 2012, up 13.7% from US$2.89 billion in 2011. Looking into 2013, the output value for China's IC foundry sector will see a modest 2.1% increase to US$3.36 billion. In Taiwan, the foundry sector will report US$21.95 billion and US$23.32 billion, respectively, in output value for 2012 and 2013. The former figure and the latter represent growth of 11.8% and 6.2%, respectively.
Market impact of Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8
Special Report | October 4, 2012
The launch of Windows 8 is significant both for Microsoft and for the industry as a whole. Windows 8 will have two major impacts on the PC and tablet markets. Firstly, it will stimulate growth in touchscreen devices. Projective capacitive touch panels are likely to become the mainstream touch technology on the basis of current trends, and their use with spread from mobile devices into PC products. Second, Windows 8 will expedite the uptake of ultra-thin systems like ultrabooks and tablets, and will therefore increase the penetration rate of SSDs.
4Q12 trends in the Greater China touch panel industry
Special Report | September 20, 2012
In 2012, shipments for touch panels used in handsets will increase 17.8% on year in 2012, making up 76.2% of touch panel shipments. In the second half of 2012, the market focus is on the iPhone 5, which uses in-cell touch screen technology. Due to the integration of display panels and touch panel functions, the high technological threshold will mean Taiwan touch panel makers are unable to enter the iPhone's supply chain. As a result panel orders will be allocated to Japan Display and LG Display. Sharp may also obtain orders by fourth-quarter 2012.
