Samsung to ramp up OLED production to keep up with rising demand

At this point, it is abundantly clear that Samsung Display is miles ahead of the pack when it comes to manufacturing high-end components for smartphones, tablets, and even laptops. Demand for its products is at an all-time high, as confirmed by its soaring market share. That's why Samsung Display is planning to ramp up the production of OLED panels.

A new report from Digitimes claims that Samsung Display is in the process of phasing out the production of LCD panels in favour of OLED ones. Interestingly enough, a report from earlier had suggested otherwise. Samsung now wants to offload some of the old LCD manufacturing equipment to OEMs based in China or India, according to a report by The Elec. There is, however, one functional LCD production line at its plant in Asan, South Korea.

The new-found capacity at Samsung's L7-2 plant in South Korea will now be used to manufacture 6G OLED (1,500 x 1,850mm) panels for small to medium applications, which will presumably include smartphones, wearables, tablets, and laptops. It also plans to set up a new 8.5G OLED (2,200 x 2,500mm) production line for QD-QLED displays, which entered mass production earlier this year. Samsung's L8 plant will output up to 30,000 panels every month.
