Foxconn deal: What will the future of LCDs mean for Wisconsin?

"Certainly Foxconn is going to have its work cut out for it," says Rosemary Abowd, a senior analyst and LCD panel expert at PMA Research, a United Kingdom-based firm specializing in display-industry market data.
Abowd says Foxconn Technology Group, the world's largest contract electronics manufacturer, has shown itself to be a smart and agile company when it comes to evolving technologies like LCD panels, which are used in TVs, computers, auto dashboards and other devices. She notes that a Wisconsin LCD (liquid-crystal display) panel plant would face considerable competition from existing plants in Mexico, China and elsewhere. She adds, however, that Foxconn knows that and is probably working on technology and efficiency innovations that could give the Wisconsin plant an advantage. "They're not going to build a plant that works like what we already have," Abowd says. It probably will, says Abowd. She explains that the OLED panel manufacturing process has hard technological limits, which probably will keep OLED TVs at least twice as expensive as their LCD-paneled cousins for the near future. If Foxconn has done its homework, it probably has already explored a partnership with a glass-maker such as Corning, for example, to co-locate a plant to supply its LCD panel factory, says Abowd. But even if the TV market for LCD panels tanks, there are opportunities in growing LCD panel markets such as education, says Abowd, where large, interactive, wireless LCD touch displays are becoming more popular but are far from common in U.S. classrooms. On the other hand, the direct-view display market could shrink drastically by 2020, says Abowd, if a new generation of affordable short-throw and ultra-short-throw projectors catch on. These units can cast huge, bright, rich, high-definition TV video on plain walls or screens in small rooms - no display panel needed. Unlike conventional projectors, which must be placed some distance from screens or walls, an ultra-short-throw projector can cast a distortion-free 60-inch image on a wall from five inches away. The bottom line, says Abowd, is that when it comes to evolving technologies, Foxconn usually has a plan. The decision to put an LCD plant in a Rust Belt state like Wisconsin didn't come without concerns but obviously not enough to deter Foxconn, says Abowd, who lives in upstate New York, where nanotechnology has taken a foothold and is attracting new investment. "These are not dumb people," she says of Foxconn. "They are very smart business minds." At a minimum, a U.S.-based LCD panel plant solves many of the transportation and distribution issues that Foxconn's many brands and customers suffer from when importing components from overseas. "I don't think they're going to build a plant right now for a market that's going to be obsolete before it happens," Abowd says.
