The LCD Manufacturing equipment market has been following a cyclical pattern similar to that observed in the rest of the LCD industry. Owing to the increasing prevalence of LCDs and the growth spurt observed in high definition viewing, LCD TVs drive the equipment market forward as they become increasingly popular.
The market, particularly the array equipment market, is concentrated in Asia in countries such as Taiwan, Korea, Japan and China. These are also highly concentrated markets wherein the top few participants hold the majority of market share.
In a highly competitive market like displays, strategic tie-ups and mergers are increasingly observed as market participants explore novel applications and markets. Additionally, in the competitive environment it becomes pertinent to continuously innovate and upgrade machine capability to cater to the continuously evolving substrate sizes.
This briefing will benefit equipment manufacturers, panel manufacturers, distributors, engineers and designers who are involved in the design of new products.
Highlights of the briefing include: an overview of the lesser known prototyping markets, trends, challenges, key competitive factors and future possibilities for the smaller footprint benchtop machines.
"The timeline between two consecutive generations of equipment has been shrinking and it is crucial for a manufacturer to continually innovate and evolve existing designs to meet the present day requirements," observes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Deepa Mathew. "Technology advancements can further control costs through process, improvements and better efficiency. High demands from end user applications combined with excess inventory are the underlying factors behind the cyclical nature of this market."
