The global display panel industry was newly developed in Japan. Later, Korean panel makers became the industry leader in the anti-passage, and China Taiwan followed closely thereafter. Due to the huge investment in LCD panel production lines, Taiwanese panel manufacturers gradually slowed down. With the strong support of the country, LCD panel manufacturers in mainland China have been catching up and achieving fruitful results in the past decade. Mainland China's panel production capacity will also gradually increase, and it will become the world's largest panel production base in 2018. What are the domestic LCD/OLED panel production lines and how are the production capacities distributed?
