DisplaySearch US FPD Conference 2006 AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 27, 2006--DisplaySearch, an NPD Group Company and the worldwide leader in display market research and consulting, is proud to announce that four leading companies in the FPD materials market and DisplaySearch will present during the FPD Materials session at the upcoming 8th Annual DisplaySearch US FPD Conference. 3M, Corning, Hoya and Fuji Photo Film will provide their insights into this critical FPD industry segment; components and materials account for as much as 75% of total costs for large LCD TVs.

The 8th Annual DisplaySearch US FPD Conference is being held at Loews Coronado Bay Resort in San Diego on March 21-23, 2006.

"Because FPD materials markets tend to grow with increases in display area size, they are some of the highest growth, and often most profitable, segments of the display industry. Without sufficient supply of materials, not enough flat panel displays can be manufactured to meet surging end market demand. Because this arena addresses the basis of overall cost reduction, concerns about component limited supply, technology issues and also indicates rapid expanding market segments, it is of interest to all members of the FPD supply chain," states Charles Annis, VP of FPD Manufacturing Research at DisplaySearch.

The FPD Materials session will feature these five speakers on Wednesday, March 22:

-- James P. Clappin, President of Corning Display Technologies, will kick off the session with a keynote discussing the outlook for the TFT LCD glass market including the challenges and opportunities associated with the continued growth in substrate sizes and scale of the TFT LCD market. With glass input capacity growing at approximately 40% CAGR this decade, discussions on the glass market promise to be a highlight of the conference.

-- Charles Annis, VP of FPD Manufacturing Research at DisplaySearch, will examine the role of materials and components in the LCD industry by investigating technical trends, by breaking down costs and by forecasting the revenue opportunities for glass, color filters, backlights, liquid crystal and more.
