About Sharp Corporation
Sharp Corporation is a Japanese multinational corporation that designs and manufactures electronic products. Headquartered in Abeno-ku, Osaka, Japan, Sharp employed around 55,580 people worldwide as of June 2011. The company was founded in September 1912 and takes its name from one of its founder’s first inventions, the Ever-Sharp mechanical pencil, which was invented by Tokuji Hayakawa in 1915. Sharp Corporation is the fifth-largest television manufacturer in the world, after Samsung, LG, Sony, and Panasonic.
Since 2000,Sharp heavily invested for LCD panel manufacturing plants. Kameyama in 2004, Sakai in 2009. Sakai plant is still only one 10th generation LCD manufacturing plant on the globe and best fit for production of 60 inch or more larger size panels. However, 2008 financial crisis and strong Yen(specially against Won) significantly lowered world demand for Japanese LCD panels. Furthermore switching to digital TV broadcasting virtually completed in Japan at middle of 2011. By Japanese government issued coupon for digital TV set, consumers were encouraged to purchase digital TV set until March 2011. It caused 2011 Japanese LCD TV market was almost crippled to half size of 2010. All of those strongly hit Sharp’s LCD business. As the result, Sakai LCD plant had suffered its very low operating rate until Fall 2012.
