The downtrend of Japanese display industry became obvious once again at the Display Innovation. Originally titled as the FPD International, the Display innovation 2014 was renewed with a different name to evoke a fresh wind in the display industry of Japan, only to find that it had failed to draw attention from the interested parties of the FPD industry.
At the FPD International 2013 held last year, about 200 FPD related companies participated whereas only 80 companies exhibited at the Display Innovation of this year, and the scale of the conference was also reduced drastically as implementing the event not in the existing convention center but in a section of the exhibition hall.
It was evident that the Japanese display industry is in the downturn as only Japan Display was joined as a panel company exclusive of the major Japanese panel makers like Sony, Sharp, Toshiba, Panasonic, etc.
However, it presented that the Japanese Display Industry is still alive as Japan Display reveals flexible AMOLED and technical skills to improve response rate of the LCD and color reproduction and real black, etc. of the LCD. And SEL shows AMOLED related new technologies.
