Post Time:Apr 01,2009Classify:Industry NewsView:340

AU Optronics (AUO) and Chi Mei Optoelectronics (CMO have placed equipment orders to expand their 6G LCD panel capacity amid increasing utilization rates driven by the consumer electronics promotion program in China, according to industry sources in Taiwan.

The equipment orders were placed to meet continued orders for LCD TV panels in the 22- to 28-inch segments from China, the sources noted.

The sources estimate that AUO and CMO may see their 6G production lines reach full capacity in the second quarter. AUO's current 6G production utilization rates are estimated to be 80-90%, the sources added.

Innolux Display has delayed equipment installation at its 6G plant to 2010, but it may start install some of the equipment in the third or fourth quarter this year, the sources said.
