TFT, the Taiwanese plants at full capacity – Macitynet.it
The TFT screen market flies in January.
Some reports that come from Taiwan, with Korea the largest manufacturer of flat screens in the world, in fact indicate that the month just ended ended with record figures for the segment.
Practically all the major local producers have now saturated the capacity of the assembly lines.
In first place is AU Optoelectronics with 755,000 units sold, in second place is Chi Mei Optoelectronics which recently started to supply Apple with the excellent wide displays in use in the new 20 inches. The third part of Cupertino, perhaps also for this reason, the producer who made the highest percentage increase compared to December. Since last October, Chi Mei's TFT production has gone from 467,000 to 634,000 in January.
For a few weeks, probably until late spring, it may be impossible for Taiwanese to increase TFT production. Only from April or May will new assembly lines enter service which will allow to increase industrial output.
