Epistar Increases Investment in Mini LED to Boost Capacity for Rising Demands

Chip provider Epistar announced that it will double its capital expenditure to gear up for booming demands with increasing Mini LED applications in the coming years.

The Taiwan-based LED chip maker sees rising demands in Mini LED products in the near future and plans to prepare its capacity in advance. As a result, Epistar said that it plans to increase its capital expenditure to above NTD 5 billion (US$ 163.83 billion), comparing to the regular expanses of NTD 2.5 billion (US$ 82 million) in the past.

Currently the two major applications of Mini LED are Mini LED backlight and fine-pitch display. For fine pitch displays, Epistar supplies RGB LED chips to its subsidiary Yenrich and Prolight Opto for transferring and manufacturing modules. The company expects that product shipment will double by 2Q20.

Epsitar’s Mini LED backlight, on the other hand, are adopted in wearables, TVs and more. The company noted that according to the schedule of its clients, Mini LED backlit products will be released by 3Q20 and the market will grow in 2021.

The increased investment is mainly for inspection and testing and the major supplier will be Taiwan-based equipment makers.
