Corning Opens Taiwan's First AMLCD Glass Plant

May 23, 2001
Corning Inc. recently celebrated the opening of its active matrix liquid crystal display (AMLCD) glass substrates production facility in Tainan Science-Based Industrial Park, Taiwan. The ceremony marked the opening of the first AMLCD glass substrate plant in Taiwan. Corning is a world-leading supplier of AMLCD glass substrates for notebook computers, desktop monitors and consumer electronics products. By 2004, the global AMLCD glass industry is projected to grow to US$2 billion (NTD 65 billion). Taiwan is expected to be a key contributor to the rapidly expanding global market for AMLCD panels, estimated to grow 35% this year. With approximately 15% of the current global supply of AMLCD panels coming out of Taiwan, industry analysts project that number to grow to 25% by 2004.
