Samsung Display is expected to boost QD-OLED production capacity by 50% by 2024, according to UBI Research. Increased production often leads to more sizes. On top of the reported 30% increase in production capacity in late 2022, which will lead to the introduction of 77-inch and 49-inch QD-OLED panels this year, Samsung Display will boost production further by 2024. It appears to be a gradual increase that will lift capacity to 45,000 substrates monthly. Each substrate can be cut into smaller displays. That is according to UBI Research's latest report and Korean newspaper HelloT.
New structure in 2023, but not in 2024?Samsung Display has confirmed that it will mass produce five sizes of QD-OLED in 2023; 55, 65 and 77 inch panels for TVs as well as 34 and 49 inch panels for monitors. The 2023 QD-OLED TV panel will use a new material for the blue emitting layer that will boost brightness and improve energy efficiency. Apparently, we should not expect another update to the light emitting structure in 2024. - "In addition, the change cycle of the light emitting structure is expected to be extended from one year to two years due to recycling of materials," wrote HelloT based on UBI Research's report. Samsung Display's QD-OLED is still trailing LG Display's WOLED in terms of production capacity and variety of sizes. WOLED is available in sizes ranging from 27 to 97 inches. Another boost to production makes Samsung Display capable of producing more sizes for monitors and TVs or add additional brands to its list of partners. At this time, only Samsung Electronics and Sony Electronics offer QD-OLED TVs. It was previously reported that Samsung Display is considering a 27-inch QD-OLED panel. 42, 48 and 83/88 inch panels seem like good additions to the line-up too, but there are no rumors regarding smaller or larger TV panels yet. - Source: HelloT
