1. Wearable won't drive display demands
JP Pang, associate vice president of mobile product management and technology development center at Innolux, doesn't believe wearable devices will do much for display makers. "We see wearable as a sensor hub. The information hub will be mobile phones."
However, AU Optronics (Auo), Innolux's local rival, thinks otherwise. Paul Peng, president of Auo, said, "The [display] market is changing now from being replacement-driven to application-oriented innovation." Wearable in his mind is one of the important new display applications along with curved TV, public information displays, and two-in-one PCs.
