Who we are

The global leader in the display market, LG.Philips Displays is the joint venture between the Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) businesses of LG Electronics of Korea and Royal Philips Electronics of the Netherlands. In 2003, the company’s share of the total market for both Color Picture Tubes (CPTs) and Color Display Tubes (CDTs) stood at 27 percent. Today, 1 out of 4 television sets or computer monitors has an LG.Philips Displays tube inside. It is our goal to make it 1 out of 3 by 2005.

LG.Philips Displays is the world’s market leader in color picture tubes for use in televisions and computer monitors. The company, with its operational headquarters in Hong Kong, employs about 27,000 people and has 23 factories worldwide as of end-2003.
