  5. Enhancement of facilities by domestic and overseas manufacturers have settled in 2013.
  6. The films with middle-level thickness, targeting TP parts materials, have expanded their capabilities.
  7. The price of white PET films for backlights have largely fallen because of the new market entrance by the Chinese locals.
  8. It is indispensable for TP parts materials to have higher quality, for instance, good thin-film quality in appearance, birefringent control, and heat-resistant shrinkage
  9. There are advantages in Japanese manufacturers.
  1. Protective Films
