Samsung Display will begin mass production of QD-OLED panels in 2021
Samsung Display, a panel manufacturer under Samsung Electronics, will begin mass production of QD-OLED panels in 2021.
In August last year, foreign media reported that Samsung Display had cut the production capacity of LCD screens at the Asan plant and was preparing to switch to QD-OLED screens. QD-OLED screen is a display screen that combines OLED screen and quantum dot technology.
In October last year, the company announced that it plans to invest 13 trillion won to develop QD-OLED technology in order to respond to supply and price pressures from Chinese competitors.
At that time, the company stated in a statement that it would build a quantum dot display production line in Asan, which will start production in 2021.
Samsung Display began to install the 8.5-generation QD-OLED etching equipment in early July this year, and plans to complete the construction of the production line in the second half of this year.
The company plans to start trial production of QD-OLED panels in the first quarter of 2021, and then expects to start mass production of such panels in the second quarter of 2021.
It is reported that the first QD-OLED panel production line (Q1 production line) can produce 30,000 glass plates per month, which can accommodate 65-inch 8K TV panels (3) and 32-inch 4K display panels (18).
The shift from LCD to QD-OLED is Samsung Display's strategic decision to respond to the high-end TV market in the next few years. Now, the LCD market is flooded with cost-effective Chinese products that have eroded corporate profitability, and QD-OLED is emerging as the next generation of high-definition TV technology.
