The LCD supply chain (including panel makers, component suppliers, manufacturing and subcontracting companies) started preparing for Apple: in the second half of 2012, it will launch three new products: iPhone 5, iPad mini and a new updated model of iPad. These mobile devices will require high-resolution, thin, lightweight and low-power screens. And, certainly, these features are keeping the LCD supply chain busy.
As we know, DisplaySearch is a company that bets on the arrival of a “review B” of the iPad, as well as the almost certain sixth generation iPhone and the so-called “iPad mini”. The table numbers are in millions of units and, as we see, companies like Corning, Japan Display, LG Display, Sharp, AUO, Chimei Innolux, Samsung, Radiant, Coretronic, TPK, Wintek and Foxconn should be very busy with the orders from Ma.
