The liquid crystal panel technology in Japan proud one by one out of the market, the two remaining fruit is also difficult to evaluate the survival state of “ ” Chinese, SHARP is the science and technology of Taiwan Foxconn chaebol mergers and acquisitions, JDI Japan show company is the debt pressure and frequency performance against. As the absolute supremacy once the global LCD technology, Japan display industry in 10 years, a sudden turn for the worse performance. From the following two pictures, you can intuitively feel the changes in the Japanese display industry.
6 years, the number of enterprises in Japan panel from the peak of 9, rapid decay to only 2.
1990 years ago, Japan has over 90% of the market share in the global panel industry, and now only less than 10%.
Now, the future of display technology OLED, and technology and market leading brand is from South Korea's Samsung, SHARP in Japan for the OLED production line work site naotou, OLED panel JDI to achieve mass production in 2018. Technology gap and capital disadvantage make people feel that the future of the market, Japan has been able to announce the end of the. Is this the truth?
OLED panel technology has more advantages in small and medium size applications, which is why LG Display after spending a lot of money on research and development of large size OLED TV technology, has turned head development of small and medium size (large size OLED not enough bargaining level on the LCD technology mature). While the small size OLED technology is currently the only mature manufacturing process called “ deposition ” method, which is called evaporation equipment core machine, the equipment supplier is the most important Canon Tokki, right, is Japan's Canon's enterprise. The annual production capacity of only a few units, so after OLED called all panel brand strategy, Canon Tokki known as the key link of the industry.
The evaporation process in the process of implementation, there is an important indispensable material “ deposition mask ”, the material world's highest market share in the enterprise also from Japan, DNP (Japanese printing corporation), the rapid rise in the OLED market at the same time, DNP also announced to continue to expand production, in order to meet the customer strong demand.
The only method is not steaming plating OLED, OLED printing technology is also emerging high hopes, because of the printing OLED method can achieve OLED material consumption is reduced by 90%, so much in Japan, after the OLED label sought. In this field, Japan's MITSUBISHI chemical control technology front, can be printed on the substrate by printing. OLED panel in the power, will be automatically led to the formation of the material attached to the circuit board image.
Can be seen in the upper reaches of the OLED display technology, Japanese companies are still holding the key link for the OLED market in the future pattern of change, said Japan did not have the opportunity, but also for the early.
