Digitimes Research: CSOT to see increased influence in AMOLED industry
Mags Chen, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Thursday 24 July 2014]

Following its aggressive investments in 8.5G production lines, China Star Optoelectronics Technology (CSOT) has become the largest supplier of 32-inch panels worldwide. The company has also established a joint venture with the government of Wuhan, China, through which CSOT will officially enter the small-to-medium-size panel application market using the joint venture's 6G LTPS/AMOLED production lines.

CSOT has already begun trial production of AMOLED panels, and by 2016 is expected to start mass producing the technology. The company's AMOLED production facilities will contribute to a total of 10 overall AMOLED production lines in China that will go into production or have already begun production from 2014-2016.

China panel makers continue to receive financial assistance both from the central government in China as well as from many local governments to develop AMOLED panel facilities. The makers are also receiving various bank loans, subsidies and plentiful access to state property in China, and are making efforts to use talent from Taiwan and Korea to develop the AMOLED panel industry.

Despite China makers' efforts to establish AMOLED facilities through 2016, Digitimes Research believes they will face high production costs and low yields, making the technology less competitive in terms of pricing compared to TFT LCD technology, and limiting the influence China makers will have in the segment in the short term.
