Biannual IT Panel Cost Report

Report Summary

Due to the expectation that OLEDs and MiniLED backlit LCDs will see growing penetration into the tablet, notebook and desktop monitor markets, DSCC has developed a cost model that compares all existing and emerging advanced display technologies entering these markets. These include a-Si LCD/Oxide LCD/LTPS LCD/ MiniLED backlit LCD/rigid OLED/flexible OLED/foldable OLED/WOLED/Inkjet OLED IT panel display costs. The OLED cost model examines all of the different form factors currently sold into, or coming into, the IT Panel market. In addition, the cost model differentiates between panels made in China, Taiwan and Korea. Panels covered range from 10.9” to 32”. More displays will be added as these categories continue to emerge. The report Includes detailed BOM breakdown, costs and margins and forecasts these parameters out to 2025.
