Based on recent product displays and talks with representatives at Tianma Optoelectronics at the FPD China 2015 exhibition, the company is actively pursuing OLED and LTPS TFT LCD production and expects new facilities to enter production by late 2015, according to Digitimes Research.

The company is optimistic about business opportunities for LCD and AMOLED panels used in smartphones and wearbles devices such as smartwatches in addition to LCoS technology for use in smart eyewear. High resolution and small- to medium-size panels in addition to touch panels are what Tianma aims to promote more in the market and expects to receive orders from major vendors, the maker said.

Tianma is currently constructing two new 6G LTPS TFT LCD and AMOLED lines and has a 5.5G LTPS TFT LCD line that will go into mass production by the end of 2015, the maker added.
