On April 18, 2015, Southwest pharmaceutical (600666.SH) publish a bid aoruide report on the acquisition, announced Southwest pharmaceutical aoruide successful backdoor access to capital markets.
Aoruide is mainly engaged in Sapphire Crystal, crystal growing furnace and Sapphire products development, production and sales, production of 2 inches, 4 inches, 6 inches and above size Sapphire ingot and products, products in addition to the main LED substrate material, the 2011 entered consumer electronics applications, supply of Sapphire materials to optical Lan Si technology and Byrne.
Report shows that aoruide plan through the trading capital market, making full use of financing function of the capital market, seize the opportunities of the Sapphire industry exploded, quickly to the Sapphire materials processing and downstream application product development, promotion and consolidation of aoruide in the industry and the dominant position in the market.
Aoruide 2013 Sapphire ingot sales revenues of 245 million Yuan, sales or 2 inches around 1,190.310,000 mm, respectively, global demand for ingot sales revenue 17.51% and 15.34%, the world leading position.
In consumer electronics, window film, aoruide can supply square cut Sapphire products, including 2-inch and 5-inch sizes.
2-inch specification blocks on the market mainly for smart wear products, such as AppleWatch window protection film; a five-inch specification material focuses on smart phones cover product.
2014 years Apple and blue Sapphire GT storm, Sapphire film market has been in a confusing State of the window.
In the traditional consumer market, Sapphire decorations appear in a small size, produced by low-cost, high-efficiency flame method. As the application cover sheet, equipped with electronic or mechanical lenses, and action buttons on the cover sheet of a variety of products, such as fingerprint identification plate hot market right now.
Constant temperature liquid crystal growth technology, Sapphire, more are used in the semiconductor industry and large scale applications for optical observation window, and was very good at “military” is applied to “civilian” Apple extended to the field of consumer electronics.
Due to thermostat melt liquid long Crystal process can production optical level of Sapphire Crystal, can solution effect color display displayed uniform and capacitor screen of penetrating rate problem and was phone producers are concern, also makes these involved Sapphire business of enterprise on consumption electronic market application is vision, although industry still didn’t solution Sapphire application in phone Shang of process and material cost, but with AppleWatch of promoted, Sapphire application in can wear field of market is slow opened, to many of enterprise brings has imagine of space.
Aoruide backdoor Southwest pharmaceutical industry to enter the main purpose of the capital markets, is to take power of the capital markets, can survive the Sapphire consumer electronics, optical-grade window film square blocks in the production process of high manufacturing costs, take advantages of Lan Si suppliers of optical technologies and Byrne, quickly occupied the market.
But the Windows are square blocks the technical requirements and technical requirements of traditional semiconductor substrate is not exactly the same, Windows are square cut out now with seven or eight years ago, Panel companies treat similar to a touch screen: perceived technical requirements is not high, actual production yields are very low.
Sapphire window, the main obstacle is still processing difficulty causes high cost, how to reduce terminal costs is eager to solve the problems of the industry. But in the current market, really open up from low-cost materials, low-cost long-grain to lower-cost manufacturing, and low-cost technical parameters such as application context of enterprise yet.
Optical Bowen had also set up his own smile boenlu manufacturers, will not authorized by Apple technical support, or in the future is unknown, but it would certainly reduce the aoruide, now known as Southwest pharmaceutical industry’s reliance on Southwest pharmaceutical industry want to quickly obtain profits on Sapphire business, it seems also have to strengthen the Sapphire window films outside the market.
