Outpriced by the Chinese
Samsung Display has decided to close its liquid-crystal display (LCD) business in June, because the Chinese and Taiwanese can make them cheaper.
Oversupply and other problems
While companies have raced to ramp up the production of liquid crystal diode (LCD) screens, that's led to way too many being made.
But beware of the panda
LG is no longer the world’s largest LCD panel supplier having been beat by BOE.
All of us have different plans
AU Optronics (AUO) Paul Peng has warned that there will be over-supply in the flat panel market from next year.
Most likely for China
Apple already confirmed its plans to have an iPhone event on September 12th and it will tell the market about its upcoming 2018 Intel only modem line up.
Chinese smartphone demand.
Beancounters at Digitimes Research have added up some numbers and divided them by their shoe size and reached the conclusion that Taiwan's shipments of small to medium size LCD panels are expected to grow 8.6 percent sequentially in the second quarter of 2018.
Will cost $10 billion
Foxconn will build three facilities in the US state of Wisconsin for operation as early as next year, as part of a campus housing a $10 billion liquid crystal display (LCD) factory due for 2020.
Japan a bit too pricey
Foxconn and Sharp are to set up a $6.95 billion10.5G or 11G LCD TV panel factory in China. Needless to say Foxconn is stumping up most of the cash and Sharp is to providing the manufacturing technology.
Get yours when you can
A report said that there will be shortages of notebook panels during the first half of 2017.
