Sharp seeks new panel buyers as Apple adopts OLED

LCD maker seeks product use in autos, 8K monitors

Sharp's Kameyama plant is its key site for making LCD panels.

OSAKA -- Sharp will start making liquid crystal display panels for automobiles and ultra-high definition monitors at its key manufacturing facility that once focused solely on supplying LCD panels for the iPhone.

The Japanese company's Kameyama No. 1 plant shifted its attention from making LCD panels for televisions to those for Apple's iPhones in 2012, with the U.S. tech giant shouldering investment for roughly half of the production facilities necessary for the switch. Initially the plant was totally dedicated to producing LCD panels for iPhones.
