Apple LCD Supplier Japan Display Agrees to $2.1 Billion Bailout "...Japan Display has agreed to a $2.1 billion bailout from a Chinese-Taiwanese group.

Trade war causes Chinese LCD maker to relocate "The trade reprisals have led Chinese firms to move their operations to other countries to avoid US tariffs and maintain their competitiveness. Besser set up a local company, Besser Display Technology Thailand, in 2018 to operate all its business units here: sales, distribution and manufacturing." via Bangkok Post

LG out to strengthen LCD TV presence "Out of the total of 218.8 million units of LCD TVs shipped globally last year, those by Korean TV makers LG and Samsung Electronics accounted for 67 million, or 30.6 percent, according to IHS Markit.

The factory will be able to produce hundreds of thousands medium-sized OLED monitors used for computer monitors, automotive applications, and so on." via AnandTech
