TrendForce: Chinese display panel manufacturers will make more than 50% of monitor panels in 2021

TrendForce: Chinese display panel manufacturers will make more than 50% of monitor panels in 2021TrendForce research has found out that Chinese display panel manufacturers will make more than 50% of the monitor display panels in 2021. I more specific figures, Chinese manufacturers will increase their monitor display panel market share from 39% in 2020 to 52% in 2021, according to TrendForce's preliminary shipment forecast of panel makers for 2021.

Looking at this market in terms of brand positioning, it is lead by BOE but CSOT and HKC are catching up fast. After acquiring SDC's Suzhou-based Gen 8.5 fab, CSOT will possess even more production capacities for monitor panels. At the same time, HKC currently maintains three Gen 8.6 fabs, located in Chongqing, Chuzhou, and Mianyang, and plans to capture additional shares in the monitor panel and notebook panel markets. As TV panel manufacturing transitions to Gen 10.5 fabs, Gen 8.5 and Gen 8.6 capacities will be used for monitor panel manufacturing.

However, TrendForce analyst Jeff Yang indicates that success is not solely decided by a company's production capacity. For example, CSOT's technical competency is mostly focused on VA panels and lacks mainstream IPS offerings. On the other hand, HKC has both IPS and VA technologies but lacks experience in manufacturing curved VA panels.Source
