LGD President Chung Ho-young, "Nothing to say" in Samsung's 'OLED'

LG Display President Chung Ho-young was silent about the supply of OLED TV panels to Samsung Electronics.

President Jeong attended the inauguration ceremony of the'Carbon Neutral Industry Transformation Promotion Committee' held at the Korea Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Jung-gu, Seoul on the morning of the 16th, as chairman of the Korea Display Industry Association.

After the event, President Jeong met with <News1> reporter, and he spared his words, saying, "I have nothing to say" to the question, "Is it true that some media reports that LG Display supplies OLED panels for TV to Samsung Electronics?"

This is an answer that is neither positive nor negative, and it is analyzed that President Chung deliberately took an ambiguous attitude. Since LG Display is a parts company, the industry practice of not being able to reveal whether or not a contract with a set maker has been concluded has also had an impact.

In recent years, inside and outside the display industry, rumors have spread that LG Display is supplying OLED panels for TVs to large electronic companies. As the world's only TV OLED panel manufacturer, LG Display is already supplying panels to leading domestic and overseas TV manufacturers such as LG Electronics, Sony, Panasonic, Vizio, and Philips.

In the electronics industry, only Korea's Samsung Electronics and China's TCL are being discussed as large TV makers with potential for cooperation. Among them, TCL's display company CSOT, which is a subsidiary, is researching the production of inkjet-based OLED panels in cooperation with Japan's JOLED, and the industry evaluation is that it is unlikely to cooperate with LG Display.

In the midst of this, in April, some media reported that a senior executive of Samsung Electronics and LG Display had recently met in their home country, and reported that the partnership between the two companies has entered the phase of materialization. However, immediately after the report, Samsung Electronics refuted that it was "unworked."

LG Display and Samsung Electronics have already established a cooperative relationship. Samsung Electronics, which has been supplying LCD (liquid crystal display) panels from Chinese companies, requested help from LG Display due to a lack of supply, and the two companies cooperated in the LCD field.

In particular, it seems that the industry is paying more attention to the fact that OLED is a newly mentioned field. This is because Samsung Electronics has pointed out the shortcomings of OLED TV several times and cut it down in the relationship between Samsung Electronics competing with LG Electronics' OLED in the premium TV market with'QLED'.

Kim Hyun-seok, CEO of Samsung Electronics' CE (consumer electronics) division, as well as Han Jong-hee, president of the video display business division, have repeatedly stressed that Samsung Electronics is unlikely to produce OLED TVs, saying, "It is true that there is only an OLED TV." .

In particular, Samsung is analyzed as a situation where Samsung Display, a display subsidiary, is producing'QD displays' as the next-generation food, and Samsung Electronics also needs to reduce the proportion of LCD TVs and speed up the transition to next-generation products.

In this process, Samsung Electronics puts products using micro LEDs and QD displays in the'super premium' group, but there is a possibility to produce OLED TVs as transitional'semi-premium' products before QD products are commercialized.

An industry official said, "From the standpoint of panel supplier LG Display, there will be no reason to supply OLED panels by covering up set companies." Said.


IMO, this is the era of Shortage.
Corona is the cause, so I don't know how long it will go.

LG Display is happy internally, but seems to control speak and manage facial expressions.
Let's see what will happen.

QD-OLED Expansion Decision Expected in Q421

Omdia expects Samsung Display to make a decision on the 2nd of 4 potential phases of capacity expansion for the QD/OLED project later this year, which would add another 30,000 sheets/month to the project’s potential capacity by 2023. That same timeline would begin phase 3 build-out in 2022, with that additional capacity (30,000 sheets/month) slated for production in 2024. SDC has a number of hurdles to cross before those decisions are set and is still researching whether the lines will use an OLED material as a light source or whether it will switch to nano-rods for the emitters.

'OLED TV's mainstream theory' is gaining strength... Both the growth trend and the expected shipments are'sprouting'

The'OLED TV trend', which has been steadily raised in the TV industry since last year, is gradually gaining strength. This is because the global OLED TV market is expected to grow significantly, and economic indicators such as the actual OLED panel shipment volume increase significantly are being released one after another.

A home appliance industry official told the Green Economic Daily, "The demand for OLED TVs will increase significantly, and shipments are expected to continue to increase." It will go beyond," he said.

According to the home appliance and display industry on the 15th, there is an expectation that the demand for OLED TVs will be able to expand its position in the TV market as the demand for OLED TVs increases significantly around the world.

According to data released on the 12th by DSCC, a display specialized market research firm, OLED panel shipments in the second quarter of this year are expected to increase 94% compared to the same period last year. In particular, in the case of large OLED panels mounted on TVs, a very rapid growth rate of 134% is expected.

DSCC said, "The utilization rate of Samsung Display's A3 line, the world's largest flexible OLED plant, will increase from 94% in the second half of last year to 97% in the second half of this year." I can see it."

If LGD can't justify building out additional capacity right now (on top of moving Guangzhou to 90,000) then I doubt that they will add significant capacity before they can commercialize a printable system. The demand environment and LGD's financial position are about as good as they are going to get.
