Mobile OLED Market DSCC Asia President Yoshio Tamura
This presentation examines overall OLED supply and demand, Apple's supply and demand, Samsung's supply and demand and China's supply and demand. It also examines the latest fab schedules and foldable display timing and challenges. Also under discussion is the outlook for LTPS and 18:9 panels as well as the cost outlook for flexible OLED panels, which is a key factor for demand forecasting.
TPK's Touchpanel Strategy Adviser to Taiwan TPK Company Ryosuke Kuwata
A discussion on the technology strategy of Taiwan TPK Company, the world's largest touch panel producer, from current and future perspectives. In particular, the strategy of silver nanowires which is focusing on adding several US venture companies to the group companies. He will explain from material development to applications in detail. This is the first full-scale lecture in Japan by a TPK representative. Organic EL Manufacturing Technology and Equipment / Member Trends Industrial Times, Electronic Device Industry Newspaper Editor, Akihiro Tsumura
The manufacturing technology of organic EL has a big difference between leading manufacturers and later generators, and especially in flexible type, many of them are struggling to establish mass production technology. Based on FPD's next-generation display development trends, this presentation explains the trends of various entrants and technologies for key components such as metal masks, sealing technology TFE, luminescent materials, etc., which are key to flexible and high definition. Others, equipment and COF trends are also discussed.
Development Trend of Coated Polymer OLED Materials Suitable for Inkjet Method Takeshi Yamada, Sumitomo Chemical Industries, Ltd.
In addition to the development status and latest characteristics of coated type OLED materials based on conjugated polymer technology, the future direction of material development and OLED manufacturing and performance by inkjet is discussed. Technology development is progressing at a level that can apply the benefits of large-area, low-cost processing for ink jet printed OLED materials, and mass production of ink jet printed OLED panels is on the horizon.
OLED TV Market DSCC Asia President Yoshio Tamura
The OLED market for TV is five years behind mobile. In addition to demand side, we explain top emission and cost reduction effects by adopting MMG in production. We discuss total cost reduction by lowering depreciation expenses for panel production in China, which will start in 2019, capital investment by introducing inkjet method, and cost reduction effect from the materials side All presentations will be in Japanese.
