BOE Preparing to Make Rigid OLED Notebook Panels on Flexible OLED Line
Prior to COVID-19, DSCC had forecasted OLED notebook panels to surge from 0.5M units in 2019 to nearly 3M units in 2020. This is a 490% growth rate and Samsung is accounting for 99% of these panels. In addition, 99% of these panels are rigid OLEDs. Although notebook PC OEMs might enjoy the benefit of the thin and light form factor that flexible OLEDs offer, they are too expensive today to include in notebook PCs other than in high priced foldable notebooks.
