Long-term Development Prospects for Companies in the LCD and OLED Drive IC Industry Once the Technical Barrier has been Crossed.
This report comprehensively analyses the market and industry of the large, medium and small sized LCD Drive ICs, and of the medium and small sized OLED. It also provides full details about the major LCD and OLED panel manufacturers and about the major LCD and OLED drive ICs manufacturers.
The Drive IC is the most expensive component of the liquid crystal module. The high-speed development of liquid crystal industry also promotes liquid crystal drive IC industry. In contrast with other analog IC, drive IC has particular features, such as huge shipments, extremely high technical requirements, close relationships with panel manufacturers and unique business patterns. Therefore, most drive IC manufacturers are professional IC manufacturers and are rarely involved in other fields.
The field of large-sized LCD drive IC is quite difficult to enter. Besides the high technical requirements, large sized drive IC manufacturers must obtain the cooperation of large size panel manufacturers and top wafer OEM. There are only two panel production lines in China mainland, and the purchasing right of drive IC has to be obtained abroad. Magnachi, the associated company of Hydis, is one of top five global large-sized drive IC manufacturers. NEC, the associated company of Shanghai SVA-NEC, is the third largest global large-sized drive IC manufacturer.
The field of medium and small sized LCD drive IC is comparably easier to enter considering factors such as a fewer connections between LCD Panel manufacturers, a large number of medium and small LCD module manufacturers in China mainland with a self-purchase right. However, the high technical requirements for medium and small LCD drive IC can not be ignored.
There are long-term development opportunities for companies once the technical barrier has been crossed. Solomon Systech is a good example. Currently, it is the largest IC design corporation in China (except Taiwan). In 2005, the sales of Solomon Systech exceeded USD $400 million with a profit of USD $76 million. Its market share of color STN-LCD drive IC and OLED drive IC ranked first in the world. Especially in the field of OLED, its market share exceeds 60% with a gross profit margin maintained at 20%.
