Digitimes Research: Taiwan panel makers look to expand LTPS LCD production capacity
Mags Chen, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Thursday 27 February 2014]

Taiwan-based panel makers had conservative developments in expanding production capacity for LTPS TFT LCD technology in 2013 amid increased competition from Japan-, Korea- and China-based makers. However, from 2014 to 2016 Taiwan makers are expected to increase production capacity on 6.5G and 4.5G, according to Digitimes Research.

AU Optronics (AUO) in particular has a 6G line that is expected to expand production while other makers have 4.5G lines that are expected to expand production by more than four times going into 2016.

Taiwan panel makers are also bumping up R&D of IGZO panel technology in order to compete with Sharp, noted Digitimes Research.
