Most likely, they are TCL, Changhong, Hisense, Skyworth and probably Konka. Haier doesn't actually have any powerful influence on the black home appliances, but it's definitely leading in white goods along with Gree and Midea in China.

Of all the Chinese TV manufucturers, I think TCL and Changhong are the most promising ones cuz TCL's 8.5 gen LCD panel line is under construction right now and will complete early next year. Changhong is also building its own high gen LCD panel line and has an extra edge that Changhong has got its own plasma panel line. The demand of plasma TV sets is surging recently.

From the top down: Hisense, Skyworth, Sharp, Samsung, TCL, Sony, Konka, LG, Changhong, Haier, Philips, Toshiba, Panasonic, Sanyo, Tsinghua Tongfang, Xoceco, Pioneer, Panda, Insignia, Benq.



Panasonic, Changhong, Samsung, Hisense, Hitachi, Haier, LG, Konka, SVA, etc

China Narrows Gap with Korea in LCD Market

http://english.chosun.com/site/data/...061700839.html

China appears to have overtaken Japan in terms of LCD panel production in the second quarter to assume third place behind Korea and Taiwan, a U.S. market researcher said on Thursday.

DisplaySearch said that Chinese manufacturers are expected to assume a 5.3-percent market share in Q2, with an increased LCD panel output of 3.4 million units per month. This would represent a rise of 2.7 million from the first quarter.

In contrast, Japanese firms are forecast to suffer a sharp drop in their monthly volume of panel production, down from 3.2 million units in the first quarter to 2.3 million in the second, to give them a 3.5-percent stake in the market.

Korea is currently leading the global LCD market with a share of 51.4 percent, followed by Taiwan with 39.6 percent.

BOE's 8.5-G LCD plant to begin operation in late June (today)



Buoyed by robust demand, liquid crystal display (LCD) panel manufacturers in China are implementing ambitious expansion plans.

For instance, the BOE Technology Group, the country's largest LCD panel manufacturer, is set to start operating its 8.5-generation TFT-LCD factory by the end of this month. It will follow in the footsteps of Samsung Electronics, which recently started operations at its 7.5-generation LCD fabrication factory in Suzhou.

According to a DisplaySearch survey, China is set to surpass Japan and become the world's third-largest producer of large-sized TFT-LCD panels this quarter.

Initial operations at BOE's 8.5-G panel production line will begin on June 28, while full-capacity production will commence from the third quarter of this year, the Guangzhou Daily reported.

The manufacturing plant will mainly produce 26-55-inch LCD TV display units. Once it starts operating at full capacity, China's reliance on imports of 32-inch LCD display units are expected to decline, according to the newspaper report.

Moreover, the plant's design capacity of glass substrates is expected to reach 90,000 units, the report noted.

"Once the 8.5-G production line starts operating at full capacity, BOE will rank in the world's top six companies manufacturing flat-panel displays," BOE's President, Chen Yanshun, predicted.

The fabrication plant has an annual production capacity of 13 million units: 3 million units will be shipped to Wuhan-based TPV Technology Ltd, a leading display solutions provider, while 3 million units will be used by BOE itself. The remaining 7 million units will be sold to domestic clients, Chen added.

Currently, the BOE 8.5-G production base has attracted 21 companies to set up operations there, including Corning Inc, a technology company, TPV Technology Ltd, Sumika Electronic Materials Co. as well as liquid glass, chemicals, polarizer and backlight, PCBA and IC chip manufacturers.

BOE has taken significant steps to experiment with new products and tap clients, a company executive said, adding that BOE recently signed a letter of intent for developing new products with several leading color TV manufacturers, including Haier, Hisense, Skyworth and Konka. He added that, through such an agreement, BOE would collaborate with TPV Technology to manufacture LCD television sets.

The 8.5-G plant, which aims to strengthen links between the up, middle and downstream sectors, will cost an estimated 65 billion yuan (US$10.04 billion), according to BOE's president. Once operational, it is expected to create more than US$100 million in production value, as well as add 20,000 jobs, Chen noted.

韩国《中央日报》: 中国LCD的反击……今起8.5代开始量产

中国电子企业京东方(BOE)集团将从6月28日开始导入一直被认为是三星电子和LG电子独占的8.5代液晶显示器(LCD)的量产体系。在中国市场中,包括了中国本土企业和外资企业在内,将第8代LCD开始进行量产化的企业京东方还是头一家。

京东方于2003年收购了韩国海力士的LCD部门,自此之后便将投资集中到了LCD的技术开发之中,随后迅速发展成为了拥有TFT-LCD领域核心技术的企业。中国企业兼并韩国企业并获得技术转移之后,现在已经达到了威胁到韩国企业的水准。

据某位熟知BOE情况的消息灵通人士6月27日透露:“BOE将于6月28日向外界正式宣布将在位于北京亦庄经济技术开发区的工厂内导入8.5代LCD的量产体系。”他同时还透露:“预计中国人民政治协商会议主席贾庆林也将参加这一活动”,“中国政府为了在中国共产党建党90周年纪念日(7月1日)之际显示中国的技术力量,将启动LCD工厂作为其重要的活动”。同时他补充表示:“中国政府将京东方以8.5代LCD技术为基础而导入的量产生产线看作是中国共产党的统治成果,所以非常重视”,“因此,最初把生产线投入使用的日程提前了3个月左右,尽快投入了生产”。

京东方从2009年8月就开始了月生产9万张8.5代(玻璃地板面积:2200毫米*2600毫米)LCD面板的生产线,目前已经完成了量产体系。据中国LCD业界透露,最初总部位于中国广东省的中国企业TCL2009年也获得了生产许可,并迅速启动了8.5代LCD的量产工作。但由于受日本大地震的影响,设备进口发生延期,最终交出了第一个实现量产化的机会。

预计随着京东方的量产体系的导入,其和三星电子及LG Display的竞争也将趋于白热化。三星电子在韩国国内从2007年7月开始就已经对第8代(2200毫米*2500毫米)的LCD进行了量产化,而LG Display从2009年3月起对第8代LCD进行量产。

LCD业界相关人士表示:“将京东方作为先锋的中国企业不仅具有价格竞争力,同时在技术层面上也已经能够冲击韩国企业,并将成为一个相当大的负担因素。”

No, no, this 7.5 gen LCD production line is just the one that Samsung is going to set up in China, they surely have the ability to produce higher gen LCD. FYI Korean govt introduces protective regulation for their high-tech companies as a restriction on investing in forerign countries.

Taiwan and South Korea will continue to lead TFT panel market, says CMI
Rebecca Kuo, Hsinchu; Jackie Chang, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 29 June 2011]

Despite the expansion of China-based panel firms, the TFT industry will continue to be fought between Taiwan- and South Korea-based firms, according to Hsing-Chien Tuan, vice chairman and CEO of Chimei Innolux (CMI). Taiwan-based firms need to continually improve technology to compete with their South Korean counterparts, added Tuan.

Tuan pointed out that Japan's TFT LCD panel industry has been dwindling after 20 years of a bubble economy. China, on the other hand, has been aggressively increasing panel capacity, however, individual panel firms and products do not have the strength to compete with the current leading companies.

Taiwan-based panel players will have enough strength to compete with their South Korea-based counterparts after the current height of depreciation has passed. However, South Korea-based panel firms have been excelling in technology. Taiwan-based firms need to continually improve technologies such as wide viewing angle and OLED in order to retain market share, stated Tuan.

In addition, Tuan added, Taiwan and Japan-based panel makers think the development of 10G, 11G, and even 12G plants will not be completely beneficial to the industry.

CMI currently has an LED penetration rate similar to the industry average, and sales of 3D TVs in China have been performing well. Furthermore, CMI's global market share for notebook panels has been increasing to 13%, and it expects the figure to increase to 17% by the end of the year.

China LCD equipment investment to peak with global share of 60% in 2012
Rebecca Kuo, Tainan; Adam Hwang, DIGITIMES

TFT-LCD panel makers' total investment in production equipment in China will peak in 2012, with total investment to surpass that in South Korea to reach a global share of 60%, according to industry sources.

China's total TFT-LCD equipment investment as a global share rose to 20% in 2010, surpassing Taiwan's and Japan's and next only to 50% for South Korea, the sources indicated. In 2011, China's global share will further increase to 38%, still lower than 45% for South Korea, the sources pointed out.

In view of China's large demand for LCD TVs, monitors and notebooks, China-based TFT-LCD panel makers have been expanding production capacities and foreign makers are setting up or will set up factories in China.

China-based BOE Technology and Shenzhen China Star Optoelectronics Technology will each start operation of an 8.5G plant at the end of June 2011 and the end of 2011 respectively, the sources noted. Suzhou Samsung Electronics LCD Technology, in which Samsung holds a 60% stake, began construction of a 7.5G plant at end of May 2011 and plans to start volume production in the second half of 2012, the sources indicated.

Taiwan-based AU Optronics has invested in FullVision Optoelectronics (Kunshan), eastern China, which will begin construction of an 8.5G plant by the end of 2011, the sources noted. In addition, Taiwan-based Chimei Innolux and LG Display are applying to set up panel plants in China. These account for the peak investments in equipment in 2012, the sources explained. China's total TFT-LCD panel production capacity is expected to surpass Japan's in 2012-2013, ranking globally third after South Korea's and Taiwan's.

China Star Optoelectronics kicks off 8.5G flat panel plant

Rebecca Kuo, Tainan; Steve Shen [Monday 8 August 2011]

China Star Optoelectronics Technology (CSOT), a subsidiary of TCL, plans to kick off operations at its 8.5G TFT LCD flat panel production line in Shenzhen, China on August 8 with mass production of flat panels slated for October, according to sources familiar with CSOT's roadmap.

Earlier market reports indicated that CSOT might be forced to postpone operations at the 8.5G plant to 2012 due to issues related to the clean room of the new line, the sources indicated.

The kick-off of CSOT's 8.5G plant comes at a time when fellow flat panel companies in Korea and Taiwan are lowering their capacity utilization rates due to oversupply of flat panels at the market, the sources noted.

In addition to CSOT's 8.5G line, an 8.5G flat panel plant of China-based BOE Technology already began mass production this quarter, pointed out the sources.

Although recent market rumors also indicated that CSOT may scale down the production capacity of its 8.5G plant due to unfavorable market conditions, CSOT actually does not have plans to adjust its capacity, the sources noted, adding that CSOT will ramp up its output to over 20,000 units a month by the end of 2011 and further jack up the production to 100,000 units by year-end 2012.

China cutting reliance on foreign LCD panels, says paper

Ian Lai and Athena Hsiao, Taipei; Joy Wan

LG Display's (LGD) postponed construction of a 8.5G LCD panel plant in China has come as a relief for the country's panel makers, and it is offering China a chance to reduce its reliance on foreign-branded panels, said China's National Business Daily.

The daily, in an August 26 report, cited an industry player as saying that it is urgent for China-based panel makers to ramp up volume production. The source said Chinese makers must also be able to manage production costs and make profits as soon as possible.

BOE Technology and China Star Optoelectronics Technology (CSPT) have set up their own 8.5G panel plants, respectively. Together the two makers will be able to supply 26- to 55-inch LCDs to China's domestic market, the daily said.

Haier's transparent organic TV eyes-on (video)



[ Engadget ] What's the worst thing about your TV? If you said "opaqueness," boy have we got the set from you. This is a 22-inch transparent organic TV from the folks at Haier (you know, the ones who also showed off that mind control TV today). It's a slim display with a metal bezel that has a clear OLED at its center with a 1680 x 1050 resolution. The images appeared pretty sharp on screen, though the colors didn't particularly pop.

And really, this thing isn't likely headed to any living rooms in the near future -- Haier sees it more as an advertising tool, letting shoppers see its images from both sides. The display in its demo form was actually hooked up to a Windows PC, running video through a media player, making this not too unlike that 14-inch Samsung laptop that we saw at CES last year.

The TV is still in its early demo stages, so pricing and availability are a ways off.

Haier's mind control TV prototype hits IFA, we go foreheads-on (video)



The remote control revolutionized the way we watch television, doing away with the need for frequent trips to the set in order to change channels. One prototype in Haier's portfolio makes the whole remote thing look like a back breaking chore by comparison. The Brain Wave (definitely not a final product name) television protoype showcased at IFA this week brings mind control into the picture, promising users a future where channels can be changed and volume controlled with mere thought.

The set is still in the early prototype stages at the moment, however, so we're still a ways away from such life altering precision. At the moment, the only available demo involves blowing up an animated barrel with your mind. Naturally, we had to give the thing a spin.

Controlling the set with your brain requires wearing a fairly uncomfortable plastic headset -- one that reminded us of our demos with Mattel's Mindflex system. An arm rests on the wearer's forehead, and there's a clip that dangles from the rear, clamping on to your earlobe -- it's certainly a lot more awkward than just using an old fashioned remote.

Getting the barrel to explode in the demo is bit like a mind control version of a "Magic Eye" poster, forcing yourself to sort of concentrate and unfocus at the same time -- a bit hard to properly describe, but simple enough, once you get the hang of it. We managed to figure it out pretty quickly, and were blowing up barrels with the best of them. It's hard to image using this device for several tasks all at the same time, however -- changing channels, adjusting the volume and choosing movie titles.

It's also hard to imagine too many people going through the trouble of putting on the headset to avoid the fairly minor task of using a remote -- hopefully Haier will be able to reduce the controller's size and awkwardness, should this thing ever come to market. No saying when that might be or how much such system might cost, however.
