LONDON, Oct. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MO source (also known as high-purity metal organic compound) is one of the core materials for manufacturing LED, new generation of solar cells, phase change memory, semiconductor laser, RFIC (radio frequency integrated circuit) chip, etc.
In 2015, global MO source demand attained 56.2 tons, edging down 3.3% YoY, mainly because: first, LED product penetration had been close to saturation in the field of large-screen TV backlight and LED TV backlight market demand started to shrink; second, flip-chip LED technology squeezed the market space of LED backlight.
In 2015, output value of Chinese LED upstream epitaxial chips, midstream packaging and downstream application rose 8.3%, 13.0% and 15.8% respectively, thus driving Chinese MO source demand to go up by 15.3% YoY to 27.1 tons. In 2016, stimulated by favorable factors such as "Made in China 2025" and "One Belt and One Road", China's LED industry will continue to enjoy steady development and see MO source demand growing to 29.9 tons.
Due to high technical barriers, the whole MO source industry is now in oligopoly and monopolistic competition. In 2015, global MO source market CR5 reached 94.5%.
Jiangsu Nata Opto-electronic Material Co., Ltd.boasting MO source capacity of 27.5t/a is the biggest MO source manufacturer in China. In June 2016, it put a 2.5t/a trimethylindium production line and two trimethylindium purification lines into production.
Dow, one of the world's leading MO source suppliers, entered the field of MO source through the acquisition of Rohm & Haas in 2009. In November 2015, it announced the forthcoming merger with DuPont. Currently, matters relating to the merger are steadily advancing.
Suzhou Pure Opto-electronic Material Co., Ltd. is a newcomer in the field of MO source. In 2016, it has formed an annual production capacity including 10 tons of trimethylgallium, 2.5 tons of triethylgallium and 800 kilograms of trimethylindium. Along with the ongoing research and development of triethylindium, magnesium, trimethylaluminum and more, the company is expected to achieve the production of MO source series in years to come.
