About 2 years ago, in the “Touch and Emerging Display report”, Feb 2013 issue, page 9, we forecasted “Taiwan will start mass produce AMOLED in 2013. But China AMOLED won’t be in mass production until 2014.” We also had a press release about this forecast on Feb 19th, 2013.
Now with EverDisplay became the first Chinese manufacturer to mass produce AMOLED, our forecast became true, after 22 months.
Figure. We accurately forecasted Taiwan and China AMOLED mass production time

Touch Display Research has a good reputation of accurate forecast. We accurately forecasted Apple AMOLED adoption time. Over a year ago, in the “Touch and Emerging Display report”, June 2013 issue, page 45, we forecasted “Apple will adopt AMOLED within 18 months”. Now with the Apple Watch announced, our forecast becomes reality in 18 months.
Sorry about tooting our own horn, but these are the facts. We know the display industry well and we are good at forecast.
Thanks for reading,
