E Ink eyes growth jump this quarter despite pandemicBy Lisa Wang / Staff reporterE Ink Holdings Inc (元太科技), a supplier of e-paper displays, expects a slight uptick in growth this quarter as demand for e-readers and electronic shelf labels (ESLs) improves amid the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, it said yesterday. The E Ink Holdings Inc booth at Computex Taipei is pictured on May 28 last year. It also plans to add manufacturing tools at its fab in Hsinchu, which would add some capacity, E Ink said. Last year’s downtrend in royalty income would likely extend into this year, the company said. Last year, E Ink took in NT$2.24 billion in royalty income by licensing advanced fringe field switching LCD technology to flat-panel makers.
