Speech Title: Global Development Trends and Suggestions for New Display Technologies

Abstract: As an important port for information exchange, the new display industry has developed into the foundation of strategic high-tech and the most dynamic electronic information industry. New display technologies continue to iterate and upgrade, and innovative display technologies such as flexible display, transparent display, laser display, Micro LED display, and light field display are in a competitive situation with different application scenarios. This speech will introduce various major display technologies and the development trend of this technology between China and other major developed countries, thereby proving that new display technologies have become an important part of national competition. In addition, we will also discuss the main challenges of China's new display technology and how to solve the problems of "large but not strong" and "bottleneck".
