According to industry observers, with the rapid development of 5G, Internet of Things and IoV industry, Taiwan LCD panel manufacturers will vigorously develop more small and medium-sized panels for emerging applications.
According to sources, Taiwan panel makers must shift their focus to small and medium-sized panels due to the failure to build a new generation of fabs, such as the 10.5G plant.
However, in Taiwan alone, in the second half of 2019, the deployment of 5G networks is expected to create up to $100 billion in business and services, and will also bring new applications to small and medium-sized panels. The development of IoV is also a huge industrial trend, and many automakers are eager to develop intelligent drive technologies such as ADAS. In other words, the development of autonomous driving technology may turn vehicles into office, entertainment or communication centers, and each vehicle may require up to 10 display products.
The rise of the Internet of Things network will also bring new business opportunities to panel makers, because IoT connectivity devices used in manufacturing, medical, vehicle and other applications require an interface that interacts with people. The display product is used.
Because customers in all industries have their own standards, panel manufacturers can develop custom products for different customers by leveraging the different features of the panel, such as flexibility, high transparency, and heat or cold resistance.
