Digitimes Research: China makers expanding production for wearable displays
Jen-Chieh Yang, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei

In an effort to secure flexible display orders from China-based wearables vendors, China's panel makers are increasing investments in AMOLED and PMOLED technologies, with aim of increasing production and securing more market share in early 2017, according to Digitimes Research.

EverDisplay Optronics (EDO) is continuing to expand AMOLED production while Visionox has invested in PMOLED capacity expansion at Govisionox Optoelectronics' facilities in Kunshan, China.

Tianma Optoelectronics is also investing in 6G AMOLED facilities, while BOE is pushing its 5.5G development and China Star Optoelectronics Technology (CSOT) 6G development, all of which are expected to open in 2017.

The developments are likely to impact Taiwan makers' cooperation with China vendors for providing PMOLED displays, a niche the makers currently dominate, in addition to other AMOLED small- to medium-size solutions starting 2017, said Digitimes Research.
