Sharp Corp. announced that operations at its new plant in Kameyama will commence in October this year.

As part of Sharp's capacity expansion plans, the new facility in Kameyama, Mie Prefecture will be focusing on large-sized LCD TV panels as demand increases, particularly from the consumer electronics market.

Sharp expects to push its sales 50 percent up to Jpy1.1 trillion ($10.4 billion at Jpy105.72:$1) by fiscal year 2007.

The new plant will initially produce 15,000 2.4-by-2.16m substrates per month, and will eventually ramp it up to 30,000 units by 2007.

According to the company, demand for LCD TVs will surge more than fourfold to 33.9 million units by then.
