Recently, the Korean media Fnnews reported in related news that the industry said that YMC, the sole manufacturer in South Korea, and TCL Huaxing, a large-size panel manufacturer in China, started to treat Samsung Display (SDC) residual LCD (liquid crystal display) from July last year. ) The production line has completed the evaluation work, and the LCD production line sales and relocation contract is expected to be carried out in the first quarter of this year.
According to industry insiders, Samsung Display’s 8th-generation LCD is equipped with COA (Color Filter on Array) technology. Previously, many Chinese manufacturers paid great attention to this line, and TCL Huaxing is most likely to win this line.
Earlier, Samsung had announced that it would close its LCD production line at the end of 2020 to focus on new display technologies such as OLED, QLED, and Micro LED. As the epidemic continues to stimulate the continuous development of home appliances, the demand for notebook computers, desktop monitors, and TVs has continued to increase. The price of LCD panels has continued to rise. According to statistics, the price of most size TV panels has risen by more than 60% so far. Samsung Display’s plan to sell its LCD has been postponed. Samsung said that the plan to shut down the LCD production line is also postponed indefinitely at the end of March 2021.
Industry insiders predict that although Samsung continues to postpone the shutdown time of the production line, the sales plan of related equipment will not continue indefinitely, and may be carried out as early as March this year.
YMC said the relevant incident has not yet been decided and cannot be disclosed. In this regard, China Science and Technology News Network contacted TCL Corporation, and as of press time, no response has been received.
