Global Demand for LTPS Smartphone Displays Rising due to Apple's iPhone 6

70 - STATISTICS

It's noted in a new report that while overall smartphone market growth continues to slow, global demand for low temperature polysilicon thin-film-transistor liquid-crystal displays (LTPS TFT LCD) for smartphones is on the rise. Led by Apple's iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, LTPS TFT LCD smartphone display shipments grew 31 percent in the first half (H1) of 2015 to reach 251 million units. The iPhone displays made up more than half (52 percent) of all LTPS TFT LCD smartphone display shipments in H1 2015.

 

LTPS TFT LCD is used in Apple's iPhone and other high-end smartphones that have full high definition (FHD) displays with resolutions of 1920x1080 pixels and in wide quad high definition (WQHD) displays with resolutions of 2560x1440 pixels. Display manufacturers are now investing in new fabs to increase future production capacity, not only for LTPS TFT LCD displays, but also for high-resolution active-matrix organic light emitting diode (AMOLED) displays.

Hiroshi Hayase, director of analysis and research for IHS Technology states in the report that "Apple adopted wider displays with higher resolution in its latest iPhone series, which has helped spur demand in LTPS TFT LCD displays. Due to strong growth in LTPS TFT LCD for the iPhone, Apple competitors are also now increasing orders of high-resolution displays."
