Digitimes Research: Korea-based makers to hold 50% share of large-size LCD supply capacity throughout 2017
Tony Huang, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Monday 24 March 2014]

Samsung Display and LG Display are expected to hold a 50% or above share of large-size (9-inch and above) TFT LCD panel supply capacity throughout 2017, according to Digitimes Research.

China-based panel makers have taken the industry by storm when news of new 8.5G lines set to be unveiled over the next few years spread through the media recently. While some market observers believe the makers are aiming to increase production capacity mostly in the large-size panel segment, Digitimes Research noted the makers, such as BOE, will focus mostly on small- to medium-size panel production.

Taiwan's panel makers meanwhile currently do not have plans to increase production capacity for large-size TFT LCD panels in the near future, and will be responsible for about 25% of large-size TFT LCD production capacity throughout 2017, which will allow Korea-based panel makers to maintain a steady hold in the large-size segment.

Production capacity for large-size TFT LCD panels is expected to increase no more than 2% in 2014, noted Digitimes Research.
