China's semiconductor display industry has become the focus of global manpower

recent export growth has made steady progress. According to media reports, the District Court of Suwon City, South Korea, banned a former employee of Samsung display company from changing jobs to a Chinese company last Tuesday, saying the ruling was to protect sensitive technologies. The Suwon District Court of South Korea also said that if the defendant fails to perform his obligations, he must compensate Samsung display company 10 million won (about 59000 yuan) every day

although the researcher told SamSung that he had found a new job at a Korean ship safety company, he actually entered a company headquartered in Chengdu, which has a close relationship with Samsung's Chinese competitor BOE, or Chengdu jingdongfang Optoelectronic Technology Co., Ltd

in fact, it is not only SamSung that faces this "anxiety" of brain drain and technology loss. In fact, the main reason for this Sino US trade war is that the United States feels extremely "anxiety" about the flow of a large number of productive resources such as capital, talent and technology to China. Moreover, as China's manufacturing industry enters a critical period of transformation from quantity to quality, the demand for global talents and technology can be said to be a bottomless pit

the reason why it is still obvious in the semiconductor display industry is that semiconductor display is not only a very professional "partial branch" market and technology, but also a multi-disciplinary marginal market and technology. This characteristic of the semiconductor display industry is doomed to the extremely limited number of technical talents really engaged in this industry worldwide, which also leads to the fact that people in this industry want to find jobs and can only flow with the flow of production capacity of this industry

since the global financial crisis in 2008, the four little dragons in Asia, the original gathering place of consumer electronics production capacity, have had to transfer the new generation of production capacity to China due to the shrinkage of investment funds and market recession. The vast majority of consumer electronics assembly business and component module processing business have gathered in mainland China

during this period, the semiconductor display capacity also began to transfer from the module section to the mainland of China, slowly pulling the upstream panel capacity to the mainland of China. So far, more than 70% of the world's display module production capacity and more than 30% of the display panel production capacity are provided by enterprises based in mainland China

at the same time, in order to reduce the cost of supply chain services, the demand for capacity support and nearby services in mainland China is becoming stronger and stronger, and the global semiconductor display panel capacity has also begun to gather in mainland China. Since 2016, more than 70% of the new panel production lines in the world have been built in mainland China

with these capacity migrations, there is also a large flow of technical talents in the global semiconductor display industry. In order to speed up the release of production capacity, these panel factories in mainland China, in addition to hiring a large number of retired talents from all over the world engaged in the panel industry, the dismissed and resigned personnel of panel enterprises outside China have also become the object of competition

despite the improvement of automation, the number of employees per unit capacity should be reduced. However, many new panel production lines in mainland China are new generation equipment and technology. There are too many new processes that require a large number of people to test and integrate. In addition, there are completely different employment modes and relatively inefficient management levels from foreign countries. In addition, panel production lines in mainland China, Generally, they undertake the production capacity of labor-intensive rear module, so the number of employees per unit production capacity is often several times higher than the average level in the global market

moreover, in terms of the basic technology of semiconductor display, China lags behind the global level by one or two generations, with a gap of at least ten years. Therefore, in the relatively mature technology of some overseas panel enterprises, the panel enterprises in mainland China do not fully understand the principle and accumulate experience in mass production, so the demand for researchers and technicians with mass production experience of overseas panel enterprises is very urgent

in fact, in order to attract the global semiconductor display industry to work in China, China's domestic panel enterprises not only offer very generous wages, but also give a green light in many policies. For some more sensitive positions or personnel, Chinese domestic panel enterprises also learn from some overseas panel enterprises, and learn from their early entrepreneurial models. In the past, the domestic market has been monopolized, employed and retained by foreign enterprises

some senior practitioners in the industry told Li Xing that, as mentioned earlier, in order to make some important positions for their own enterprises, they specially set up a new enterprise for them to avoid the relevant non competition restrictions. In fact, it is very common in the global semiconductor display industry. Most semiconductor display enterprises have had similar operations in the initial stage of establishment or during the tackling of key problems of new products and technologies

according to the information learned by Li Xing from the industry, in fact, there are only thousands of TFT panel technicians who are really engaged in semiconductor core technology in the world, and even fewer who really master OLED panel mass production technology. The total number of core technicians in the front yellow section of panel factories in the world is only more than 3000 or 400, that is to say, the total number of core technicians in the front yellow section of panel factories in the world will not exceed 2000

at present, there are more than 100 panel production lines running in the world. These more than 2000 people are divided, and there are less than 20 people in each production line. It is conceivable that there is a shortage of talents in the semiconductor display industry. It is no wonder that the flow of every core technical personnel will be a major event of great concern to the industry for the collapse or wear of the wedge-shaped bevel

in fact, the total production capacity of global panels is increasing every year. In addition, due to the increasing degree of customization of display devices and more and more application scenarios faced by semiconductor display devices, the panel talents needed by the industry are also increasing every year, while the talent gap in mainland China is even greater

as the foundation of the semiconductor display industry in mainland China is still relatively weak, in many fields, we can only recruit corresponding talents in the global market. Due to the slow contraction of panel production capacity, overseas enterprises no longer take the cultivation of semiconductor display talents as their long-term plan. With the retirement of old employees, there will only be fewer and fewer overseas semiconductor display talents

in this way, while vigorously developing the semiconductor display industry, arranging production capacity in various ways and improving the matching rate of production capacity, how to really cultivate China's own semiconductor display talents and strengthen its own basic scientific research work of semiconductor display will be the focus of the semiconductor display industry and even the whole consumer electronics industry in recent years

how to learn from the experience of overseas panel enterprises in cultivating core technicians, instead of letting a group of "technical hooligans" in the industry extort high wages and treatment every day, and then be forced to buy a pile of high priced equipment and materials, watch them leave smartly after mixing the "technical executives" of the five-year contract, and gloat at at them and then go to the next "disaster"
