Sichuan CCO Display plans to construct a 4.5-Gen AMOLED production fab in Chengdu (western China) in a 7 billion yuan ($1.15 billion USD) investment. This fab will have a monthly capacity of 30,000 substrates.
Construction will begin in mid-2014 and will be completed in 2015. Mass production will begin in 2016. This fab will produce small and medium panels (2.6" to 10" in size) - to be used in mobile devices.
Sichuan CCO has a 2.5-Gen PMOLED Line with a yearly capacity of about 12 million 1" panels. They are currently producing 0.7" to 2.5" PMOLEDs, but they say that PMOLED production is not very profitable and they are shifting their focus to AMOLEDs. They already developed 2.6" to 7.6" AMOLED panels. Digitimes says the company has 501 AMOLED patents, most of them (402) in China.
