However, from the financial report of the first half of 2020 disclosed recently, its expected performance has not yet been realized.
The decline of vicinos net profit may be related to the decrease of the heat of the panel Market under the impact of the new crown epidemic.
According to the data of omdia (formerly IHS), the expected market size of global display panel will be 107.1 billion US dollars in 2020, a year-on-year decrease of 1%.
Global novel coronavirus outbreaks, trade frictions upgrading and geopolitical uncertainties have brought greater downward pressure on the global consumer market. Mr vicino said.
In spite of the decline in profits, vicino may be launching more actions in frontier areas such as folding screens.
The 21st century economic news reporter learned exclusively from people close to Huaweis suppliers that vicino is expected to become the screen supplier of Huaweis next generation of folding screen mobile phones. Recently, vicino has also reached an agreement with Huawei, and both sides will jointly work on the technical breakthrough and R & D of the next generation of folding screen mobile phones.
It is understood that the main partner of Huaweis folding screen mobile phone is SamSung of South Korea. Huaweis new matex2, for example, uses a panel from Samsung.
However, those close to Huaweis suppliers pointed out that with the rising demand for domestic substitutes in semiconductor and other fields, localization of new panel and other parts suppliers has also been paid more and more attention.
