In the display industry, companies in the Chinese mainland started nearly a decade later than peers in developed countries. But after more than a decade’s growth, the Chinese mainland has already become the largest consumption market and production base of displays in the world, and also the world’s leading production base of panels. As a leading producer of displays in China, the shipment of BOE displays accounts for more than half of the total shipments in the Chinese mainland. On a global scale, BOE’s shipment and market share both rank fifth in the world, and its smart mobile LCD panel tops the world in regard to shipment in 2013.
Today, BOE has set up a complete semi-conductor display R&D and manufacturing system. It is the only high-tech company in the Chinese mainland that can independently produce all ranges of semi-conductor displays. Holding more than 10,000 patents, its global new product launch rate reaches 30%. The company also plays an increasingly important role in the world in developing and producing high-end panels with cutting-edge technology. In 2013, 35% of its products were launched for the first time in the world, including hit products such as the 8K ultra-HD display, 500PPI mobile phone display, naked-eye 3D display, transparent display, flexible display and narrow bezel. In addition, BOE boasts the 98-inch 8K ultra-HD display, which is the largest in the world, 55-inch ultra-HD AMOLED display, which is the largest in China, as well as other frontier products such as smart-mirror and the high-PPI smart mobile phone display enabled by the in-cell touch technology. All these impressively underline the excellent global competitiveness of BOE and its brand value in the mobile Internet age.
Right now, the mobile Internet and a new wave of information technology development are bringing about revolutionary changes to the display industry. The convergence of screen, cloud, Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and professional services, coupled by the convergence of software, network and hardware, will further push the industrial ecosystem and business models to rapidly evolve. In this context, BOE as a world-leading display product provider will stick to the “5P+H” strategy, leverage its technological innovation capabilities, and drive the development of display products with industry-leading innovation, in order to meet and even lead customers’ new demands. Finally the company will continue to provide consumers with industry-leading display products and solutions, and create greater value with outstanding display technologies for customers.
