LTPS Production Rising, AMOLED on Sale, a-Si Resolution Up

Trendforce says that major panel makers will continue to add LTPS production lines between 2015 and 2016, with a focus on G5.5 and G6 sizes. By 2016, total area capacity is expected to more than double from its 2013 figure: from 5.8 million m² to 11.7 million m². Japan Display currently has a 30% share of the global LTPS market. Trendforce added that Samsung Display will begin to sell its AMOLED panels to other makers next year, and that some panel makers are trying to raise a-Si panel resolution above 400ppi.
