MII advises display makers to focus on 5G plants

Posted: 08 Nov 2004 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

The Ministry of Information Industry (MII) of mainland China advised panel makers, such as BOE Technology Group Co. Ltd and Shanghai SVA NEC Liquid Crystal Display Co. Ltd, to concentrate on their fifth-generation (5G) plants instead of constructing or shifting production in 6G and 7G facilities.

According to Guo-Ping Ji, MII department director of electronic information product management, it would be practical to retain production at the companies' 5G plants since production costs for 6G or 7G plants are higher and the technology is highly different, apart from the not-so high demand for these products. He adds that Taiwan-based companies already transferred most of their 6G plants to 5G production.

BOE Technology plans to produce 22- and 27-inch panels at its 5G facility while SVA NEC will be making 23- and 26-inch LCD TV panels.
