Display manufacturer Orion PDP Co. Ltd announced it would cease production of 42-inch plasma display panels (PDPs) in the second half of the year due to low profit margins achieved by the segment.

Currently, the company's monthly capacity for 42-inch PDPs is 5,000 units. The plan to halt the production of this segment was pushed by intense competition from other large-scale makers, including Samsung SDI Co. Ltd and LG Electronics Inc.

Orion will instead be boosting production and advertising of multifunction PDPs. The company has 84-inch multi-PDPs that are connected with four 42-inch PDPs each. The company is also focusing its R&D on multi-PDP prototypes.
