New DSCC Weekly Database Provides Complete Toolset at China Display Fabs from 2015-2020 and Beyond​

Austin, TX -

Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) has released a first of its kind database which provides the complete toolset and components used in all display fabs in China, from 2015-2020 and beyond. The Advanced Weekly PO and Award Database reveals all the different tools and components for nearly every display fab in China along with the supplier of those tools and components and the number of units being delivered. These awards are typically issued before purchase orders are released, allowing analysts to not only track, but also predict company bookings. In addition, since display equipment can be delivered more than a year after the awards are issued, it allows users to accurately forecast market share out as much as 18-months in advance for more than >150 different equipment categories, ranging from <$5000 to over $100M per tool/component. With the fabs in this database representing over 75% of 2018-2020 equipment spending, it represents a cost effective and highly accurate way for companies to predict the size of the display market in units and revenues as well as track their competition. It also gives component suppliers a way to track their end-markets and market share of their customers. In addition, it allows panel manufacturers to examine the tool choices of their competitors and gain insight into their competitor’s processes. Furthermore, it allows equipment suppliers to track the growth of segments they are not participating in, providing an immediate way to size the market for every category and shorten the time it takes to assess new markets.

A second database is also provided on all purchase orders filed by Korean equipment suppliers, revealing the size of every PO in KRW and $US along with delivery dates, giving insight into bookings, revenue recognition and tool pricing.

According to DSCC Founder and CEO Ross Young, “We are thrilled to be offering this product to our customers, which reveals perfect information on all display equipment and components going into fabs in China. Users can instantly see how many tools for every tool type are being ordered at each fab. It allows them to quickly size equipment markets, determine market share, track their competition, assess panel makers’ processes and much more. This publicly available data has never been compiled in this way before and allows buy-side and sell-side analysts and investors to make more informed decisions on display-related stocks. In addition, as new fabs are built and more equipment is awarded, those will be captured as well and updated weekly. It also allows DSCC to feed this information into its Quarterly Display Capex and Equipment Report and provide more accurate market sizing and market share data on the whole market for over 70 different equipment segments."
