Chongqing's 6 generation flexible AMOLED production line is set up by Beijing Oriental to speed up high-end display layout
In the age of the Internet of things, it shows everywhere. In the face of the growing demand for flexible display and large size ultra high definition display, the global semiconductor display giant BOE (Beijing East) accelerates the layout of the production line. In March 8, 2018, BOE Technology Group Limited by Share Ltd (BOE A:000725, BOE B:200725) announced plans to invest in Chongqing construction of the sixth generation AMOLED flexible production line, Wuhan to invest in the construction of the 10.5 generation thin film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) production line.
Notice that the BOE (BOE) Chongqing sixth generation AMOLED (flexible) line project total investment of 46 billion 500 million yuan, the total designed monthly capacity of 48 thousand glass substrates, the size of 1500mm * 1850mm, the products are mainly used in mobile phone, notebook and car foldable flexible display products, is expected to put into operation in 2020. This is the third line of BOE (Beijing Orient) for flexible display layout.
AMOLED flexible display technology with self luminescence, wide visual angle, fast response time, excellent performance of high luminous efficiency and light, a breakthrough to achieve a bendable display, in full screen mobile phone, notebook computer, folding surface display, the emerging field of wearable equipment, high-end car has a broad application space. In 2017, the IHS data showed that the flexible AMOLED panel market increased from $3 billion 500 million in 2016 to $12 billion, with a growth rate of 250%. In 2017-2021 years, the composite growth rate of flexible AMOLED year was 22%. Other data show that by 2022, flexible AMOLED will account for 68.9% of the market demand for small and medium sized semiconductor products.
At present, BOE (BOE) has laid out 2 sixth generation flexible AMOLED production lines in Chengdu and Mianyang, and Chengdu flexible 6 generation line has achieved mass production. Mianyang flexible 6 generation line has been completed, and it is expected to achieve mass production in 2019. The sixth generation of flexible AMOLED production line in Chongqing will have synergistic effect with the sixth generation flexible AMOLED production line of Chengdu and Mianyang, and further enhance the global competitiveness of BOE (BOE) in the field of flexible AMOLED and semiconductor display industry.
On the same day, BOE (Beijing Orient) also issued a bulletin to build the 10.5 generation TFT-LCD production line of thin film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) in Hubei. The total investment of the project is 46 billion yuan, the design capacity is 120 thousand pieces of glass substrate per month, the size is 2940mm * 3370mm, which is used to produce 65 inch and 75 inch 4K/8K and 60Hz/120Hz TV panel products. With the popularization of 8K in the international large-scale sports events as an opportunity, ultra high definition and large size have become an important trend in the development of the display field. BOE (Wuhan BOE) 10.5 generation line will further fill the market gap of the large size Ultra HD display products and meet the growing demand of high performance display products for consumers.
