Q1 OLED Supply/Demand Update – Oversupply in Phones to Persist to 2025
We have updated DSCC’s Quarterly OLED Supply/Demand and Capital Spending Report for Q1, providing DSCC’s latest capacity outlook for the industry and our forecast for OLED panel demand. As we have reported for more than a year now, OLED supply for smartphones (technically, for Small & Medium applications) continues to significantly exceed demand which is expected to persist for years. However, the supply growth keeps coming primarily due to Chinese government subsidies. We have revised our outlook for OLED TVs on both the supply and demand sides, and we continue to expect high utilization at OLED TV fabs.
