"Worldwide sales of e-paper screens from E Ink and its rivals fell from 5 million in the second quarter of 2011 to 1.2 million in the same period this year, according­ to DisplaySearch. And E Ink’s Taiwanese parent company, E Ink Holdings Inc., reported a $26 million loss in the first quarter of 2012, compared with a $43 million profit in the previous quarter.
However, the market for those screens is now dominated by E Ink, Semenza said. Last month, the company agreed to buy SiPix Technology Inc., its main competitor, leaving E Ink as “the last man standing” in a diminished but still profitable e-paper market."
