How do LED display screen manufacturers face the rising price of chips?


On the basis of traditional LED large-screen display technology and products, the share of LED display application products in the industry market has increased year by year. The development of LED upstream industry plays a significant role in promoting the development of display application industry. The positive interaction between the upstream and downstream of the LED industry chain has been achieved, and the promotion and application of new products and new technologies have been rapid. Based on the development of LED chip materials, driving IC, control and other technologies, many enterprises in the industry have formed a certain technical and production engineering foundation in LED integrated application, semiconductor lighting, lighting lighting engineering and other aspects.

The upstream epitaxial and chip prices of light emitting diodes (LED) have risen for the first time. The top three LED manufacturers in the world, Crystal Power, have released the price increase message to the downstream packaging leading manufacturers; Chen Jincai, chairman of Guangga Optoelectronics, confirmed that the price of semiconductor in Seoul, South Korea, had been raised by 5% to 10%. As LED factories are widely used in TV, laptop, lighting and other products, it is expected that the price of terminal products will also follow up.

Due to the shortage of parts and components, the price of electronic products has changed from a fixed decline in the past to a rise without falling. The price of LED chips has declined by 20% every year in the past, but this year, the price will rise against the trend. This wave has started from the second-tier factories, including the bright circle, the wide gallium, the new century, the Taigu, etc. These enterprises have quietly increased the price under the full capacity; The production capacity and revenue of Crystal Power are more than four times that of the second-tier factories. After the leading factories follow up, the overall industrial chain will bring price pressure. LED display products are not immune. More or less will be affected.

In the face of rising prices, some enterprises began to fundamentally change and carry out comprehensive technological innovation. China's LED display application industry has always had a good foundation in the development of new technologies and new products. Adapting to the changes in the demand of LED display application market, in 2009, many enterprises in the industry actively carried out work in product technology development, patent and intellectual property protection, and many new technological achievements were directly used in key projects such as the 60th anniversary celebration of the National Day, and achieved good results. Some enterprises have undertaken the research of relevant science and technology projects of the national and local governments, and a large number of enterprises in the industry have obtained the qualification of high-tech enterprises.

For many years, Xinpute Technology has been focusing on the development of soft transparent display, MiniLED and Micro LED technology. Through independent and cooperative efforts, Gamin Technology has assembled various display products and obtained a series of key patents, from IC design and microelectronic hardware such as IDC pixel core components, to basic materials such as transparent films and special adhesive materials, to control software.
