Samsung Display to increase QD-OLED production later this year

26 Aug 2022 | Rasmus Larsen |

Samsung Display will increase production capacity for QD-OLED by 30% before the end of 2022 ahead of the introduction of 77-inch (TV) and 49-inch (monitor) panels next year.

After terminating all production of LCD TV panels in June, Samsung Display is ramping up production of OLED.

The company's yield rate for QD-OLED has reached 85%, meaning that 85% of the panels produced can be sold, according to a report by The Elec. Further efficiency gains will allow Samsung Display to increase QD-OLED panel production by 30% before the end of the year.

Higher yield rate and increased production capacity will help make QD-OLED products more affordable for consumers.

At this time, Samsung Display is capable of manufacturing 30,000 Gen 8.5 substrates (2200x2500mm) per month. These can be cut into smaller 34-, 55-, and 65-inch QD-OLED panels. The expansion will increase capacity closer to 40,000 substrates per month.

The report reiterates that Samsung Display is planning to start mass production of 77-inch and 49-inch QD-OLED panels next year. The company will apparently position the 49-inch panel as a monitor panel. - "Samsung Display will also start to manufacture 77-inch and 49-inch versions of QD-OLED next year with the added capacity. This means the South Korean company will be manufacturing 55-inch, 65-inch and 77-inch versions of the panel aimed at TVs and 34-inch and 49-inch versions for monitors," reported The Elec. Last year, LG Display similarly increased production capacity for WOLED panels.
