Chi Mei Optoelectronics Corp. (CMO) is reportedly considering to manufacture its own LCD backlights for its panels, and aims to produce 70 percent of its LCD modules in-house.

Previously, backlight makers in Taiwan believed that CMO will likely not delve into LCD backlights and stay focused on panels. However, when the LCD TV market saw its large market growth potential last year and prices of LCD panels began declining, industry sources said that CMO might resort to producing its own backlights to cut production costs.

CMO is reportedly moving its production of LCD panels and other modules to Mainland China to reduce manufacturing costs. However, production of LCD backlights will remain in Taiwan.
