Scope of condition : FPD industry outlook toward 2015
Managing Director, Head of Japan Technology Research, Senior analyst, Japan equity research
The industry environment is changing rapidly. In large panels the TV market has matured and panels have become mere commodities, while in small and medium-sized panels there has been a sharp rise in demand for ultra-high definition panels, and a surge in the importance of technology-based differentiation. Liquid crystal panels are facing intensifying competition from OLEDs in every screen size. The only panel manufacturers showing a profit are Korean firms and Japan Display, which specializes in small and medium-size panels, while the rest of the industry is doing poorly. The time is ripe for a full-fledged restructuring of the industry, and the key seems to be whether Taiwan joins forces with the Japanese industry or the Chinese. Already the industry is concentrating around mobile device end products. For hardware brands the share of the total device market is crucial, instead of merely the share of a single application market, and especially in mobile devices the release of hit products can enable domination in multiple application sectors. For component, material and equipment manufacturers, the key to success is accurately grasping the needs of the consumers at the other end of the product line, predicting what type of products manufacturers will develop to satisfy them, and then offer the materials, functions and performance needed to make them possible. This session examines the state of the FPD industry from a variety of viewpoints, including the entire value chain, regional competition, and end products.

The changing face of competition in the FPD industry
Techno Systems Research Co.,Ltd.
As restructuring continues in the FPD industry, technical innovation is creating a new axis for competition. High-definition mobile LCD originated with smartphones, but continuing evolution has led to tablets, and now to large-screen versions in notebooks and All-In-One (AIO) PCs. Even LCD TVs are beginning to offer high-definition, such as 4K2K resolution.
In the mobile sector companies are concentrating functionality into panels, such as through in-cell technology, OLED displays, positioned as a competitor for LCDs, will have to accelerate plans for high-definition capability and offer improved toughness.
This session covers market trends from mobile through large-screen TVs, describing developing competitive elements and key words.

Challenges and Opportunities for AMOLED
BOE Technology Group
Director of Technology Planning & Management
FPD industry has achieved remarkable progress after years of accumulation and development. AMOLED, the representative of the latest display products, is now facing a crossroad. AMOLED faces a few challenges due to lack of application field, absence of low-cost technology, immaturity of large-sized mass production technology and short supply of material and equipment. However, as AMOLED is the extension of TFT-LCD technology, many resources and experience of TFT-LCD can apply to the development and production of AMOLED. The whole FPD industry, especially TFT-LCD manufacturers are trying hard to find new technological solutions and new applications, which brings great opportunities to AMOLED. BOE has been actively developing AMOLED technology, in the hope of achieving progress in technology and products.
