The cost effective mass production of efficient liquid crystal displays enabled the digital revolution in consumer electronics and information technology and the performance limits are far from being reached.

Chances and challenges of this growing market for the European companies will be at the center of the discussions at the 32nd DFF meeting (German Flat Panel Display Forum). Professionals of the European flat panel display industry meet for this symposium at PLANSEE in Reutte/Austria on December 3, 2009.
Drastic changes at the beginning of the year led to massive declines in sales for the supply industry. In the medium-term, growth rates of more than 10% along the value chain can still be expected. Material suppliers as well as equipment manufacturers, display makers and system integrators will benefit from this. While display production mainly happens in Asia, European companies play a significant role in the supply industry. Europe is, furthermore, one of the largest end user markets, e.g. for TFT-LCD TVs.
Keys to success are close cooperation and innovative production solutions beyond the corporate boundaries. The DFF supports the networking of the industry and serves as a platform for information for more than 65 member companies. Together they take up the challenges of the market with its highly complex manufacturing processes, its high speed developments and its enormous cost pressure:
- Intelligent solutions to reduce the costs of production
- Simplification of manufacturing processes
- New material developments for even better image quality and new display technologies
Main topics of the working group meeting will be materials, component and production equipment for flat panel displays. A market forecast for different display technologies and an overview of factories in planning will moreover guarantee exciting discussions. The symposium will be hosted by PLANSEE Metall GmbH, the world’s leading provider of coating materials such as molybdenum, tungsten, tantalum, chromium and their alloys. Numerous experts will contribute presentations at the company’s headquarter in Reutte/Austria, among them material suppliers like Merck KGaA on liquid crystals or the renowned production equipment manufacturer Applied Materials. Companies that are not member of DFF are also welcome as guests.
