Japan's suppliers, including Japan Display, Renesas SP Drivers, and Sony, are expanding component production to meet the rapid market growth in mid-range and value-line smartphones in China, reported Nikkei Inc. on December 25. Japan Display will sell relatively low-cost panels to Chinese smartphone manufacturers, pricing 10% to 20% lower than its latest products. The company expects shipment volume share to China to increase from 15% this fiscal year (to end in March 2014) to over 20% in fiscal 2014. Renesas SP Drivers will provide more value-line LCD driver ICs to Chinese phone makers, projecting to have over 10% of its annual revenue coming from China in 2014. Sony, which primarily focuses on CMOS sensors for high-end smartphones, is also expanding its product lineup of mid-tier and entry-level sensors.
