Overview of China's LED chip industry
Special Report | November 24, 2011
Thanks to a MOCVD subsidy programs, China is the global center of MOCVD equipment demand, accounting for 57% of shipments in 2011, helping the local LED industry gradually improve its global standing. However, the country's LED chip manufacturers remain an extremely mixed bag in terms of competitiveness. The 12th FYP aims to remedy this situation by consolidating the industry into a handful of serious competitors, namely Sanan, Electech, Tsinghua Tongfang, Silan Azure, Epilight and Changelight.
China PV industry development, by region
Special Report | November 14, 2011
While Beijing has encouraged regional governments to develop the nation's solar PV industry, growth has been dramatic, as each local region attempts to develop its own industry clusters and supply chain. Solar wafer capacity in China will grow by 81% in 2011 to reach 35GWp, accounting for 67% of global capacity, while solar cell capacity will reach 37.3GWp. China's solar PV capacity alone will exceed total global demand. This Digitimes Research Special Report examines the regional solar strategies employed in China and the development of local players affecting the global PV market.
The role of Internet of Things in China's 12th Five Year Plan
Special Report | October 31, 2011
During China's 12th Five Year Plan, the central government and local governments have begun working on a range of standards, industry supply chains and applications with the goal of creating an industry worth more than CNY500 billion in 10 years. This Digitimes Special report outlines the key technologies for IoT in China, progress being made on industry standards and how related industries and applications are being utililized in key cities and provinces, as well as by the three major telecom proviers.
Development trends in the Greater China large-size TFT LCD industry
Special Report | October 28, 2011
The Greater China region (Taiwan and China) is expected to account for 44.5% of global large-size TFT LCD panel shipments and 42.5% of global large-size capacity in 2011. Geographically speaking, Greater China is the second most important region after South Korea in the panel industry. This DIGITIMES special report offers a comprehensive overview of the development of the large-size TFT LCD panel industry in the Greater China region, as well as the competition and collaboration between China-based players and their peers from Taiwan and South Korea.
Overview of the Greater China small- to medium-size TFT LCD industry
Special Report | October 25, 2011
The Taiwan small- to medium-size TFT LCD industry has risen to become the world's largest in terms of shipments, while China's nascent industry shows more growth potential than any other nation. However, while players in the Greater China region focus on capacity and LCD production enhancements, rivals in Korea and Japan are focusing on AMOLED technology, which may represent the future in the higher end of the market. This DIGITIMES Research Special Report provides a comprehensive overview of the players and market direction of panel makers in the Greater China region, as well as outlining the potential market influence of OLEDs.
The role of PV in China's energy policy through 2015
Special Report | October 11, 2011
During China's 12th Five Year Plan period (2011-2015), solar PV will be the fastest growing renewable energy. In 2010 solar PV system installations were only 822MWp but the price of solar products has been decreasing rapidly in recent years, and installations over the next five years will grow by tenfold to reach the target of 10GWp. The government will allocate resources to the main solar firms with targets such as to have 1-2 firms with polysilicon production capacity of 50,000 tons and 2-4 firms with 10,000 tons of capacity.
Standards and scale of Asia LED lighting markets
Special Report | October 3, 2011
Digitimes Research projects marked growth in LED markets across Asia over the next five years. By 2015, the LED penetration rate for Japan will hit 70%, while Korea will see LEDs account for 30% of overall lighting sales and China will achieve 90% and 60% growth in 2014 and 2015, respectively. This Digitimes Research Special Report provides an overview of the standards driving market growth in the various Asian markets, as well as outlining the discussion regarding the creation of joint standards for LED lighting between Taiwan and China.
Industry development and government policy in China's animation sector
Special Report | August 29, 2011
China's animation industry includes production of animated TV series and films, as well as animation produced for use on the Internet (including cell phone animation). The industry production value topped CNY20.8 billion in 2010 and is projected to exceed CNY50 billion by 2015, buoyed by economic growth and government-led protective policies. This Digitimes Special Report provides an overview of the industry, including regional development, government policy and a breakdown of the various market segments.
Development of electronics manufacturing bases in China's central and western regions
Special Report | August 22, 2011
The recently published 12th Five Year Plan clearly states the government's intention to reform the country's industrial structure, meaning there will be a shift in focus from eastern regions to address the neglect of the central and western regions. Transport infrastructure has gradually been put in place, and central government policy has succeeded in making the central and western regions the most important manufacturing sites for the coming decade, with the regions expected to claim three of China's ten core cities for the ICT industry.
