Digitimes Research: Touch panel makers in Greater China focused on thin-film and OGS products in 2014
Jen-Chieh Yang, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Thursday 29 May 2014]

Touch panel makers in Greater China are focused on thin-film and OGS products in 2014, according to Digitimes Research.

TPK is currently focused on the production of nano silverwire touch technology for use in entry-level smartphones in China while GIS is developing similar technology for Nokia.

Additionally, Young Fast Optoelectronics is now focusing on OGS solutions after struggling with G1F advancements in the market.

O-Film and Truly Optoelectronics meanwhile are focusing on both thin-film and OGS solutions to meet entry-level and mid-range smartphone demand in China.

OGS and thin-film solutions are used for thin-type smartphones, which shows that market demand in 2014 is all pointing towards lighter and thinner solutions, added Digitimes Research.
