The LCD modules market in the Greater China region continues to grow at an average annual rate of 20 percent. Because of very intense competition, small and mid-size manufacturers across the region have progressed from TN/HTN/STN passive matrix technologies to higher-end color STN (CSTN) and active matrix thin film transistor (TFT) technologies. Many of them, however, continue making a wide range of module products across the spectrum.

Of 160 makers located in the Greater China region, 120 of them can be found in Guangdong, Jiangsu, Fujian, Shanghai, Hebei, Liaoning and Jilin. Optical industry zones set up in these regions provide an excellent development environment for LCD module makers.

Mainland China's total LCD module production exceeded 2 billion units by the end of 2005 at only half of actual production capacity. Some large-scale makers enjoy the same level of strong manufacturing and R&D capability as their foreign counterparts.

Small and medium-sized LCD module applications in 2005 were concentrated in the areas of telecom, consumer electronics, automotive and industrial products.

Heavy market saturation also continues to have a dramatic effect on prices, as supply exceeded demand in the first half of 2006. The arrival of next generation panels is expected to decrease the rate at which prices are falling.

The following are some of the key findings in the report:

-- The 42 companies in this compilation will account for about 50 percent of Greater China's total output in 2006. Their output is expected to grow by 62 percent from 697.3 million units in 2005 to 1.13 billion units in 2006.

-- The companies' combined monthly capacity is estimated at 89.41 million units. Large-scale players account for 48 percent, with monthly capacities of at least 800,000 units.

-- TAB, COB and COG will continue to be the most common technologies employed in LCD module manufacture.

-- Mobile phones are driving the small-size, high-end segment of the market, which includes CSTN and TFT LCD modules. Flat panel LCD TVs are leading the large-sized LCD module market. LCD module R&D is focused on faster response time, higher resolution and lower power consumption.
