CES Signals Reboot for AMOLED TV Market


Television brands remain committed to the success of active matrix organic light emitting diode (AMOLED) sets, with the new impetus evident at the International CES expected to cause shipments to rise to more than 10 million units in 2018, according to IHS Technology.

IHS analysts expet global unit shipments of AMOLED television panels to amount to about 50,000 this year, as the sets remain very expensive and only one manufacturer - LG Display - is expected to ship large volumes of panels in 2014. However, several brands demonstrated a range of AMOLED sets at CES. As the AMOLED display suppliers resolve their manufacturing challenges, and the brands enter higher-volume production, AMOLED TV panel shipments are predicted to rise to 700,000 in 2015, to 2.2 million in 2016 and to 5.1 million in 2017.

AMOLED televisions were on center stage at CES, led by LG Electronics, Samsung and Panasonic showing a variety of new sets, including models with a range of screen sizes, ultra high definition (UHD) resolution and curved and even bendable displays.

LG Electronics at CES in 2013 launched the first 55-inch Curved Full high definition (HD) AMOLED TV. This year at CES, the company made another first with a 77-inch bendable UHD AMOLED TV. Users can adjust the bending radius of 5,000mm with a remote controller.

LG Electronics is using a WOLED, or white-OLED, panel based on oxide TFT technology from LG Display. The company currently is running 8,000 sheets per month on its eighth-generation WOLED fab, and plans to expand production to 26,000 sheets per month.

Samsung Electronics at CES showed a 55-inch curved Full HD OLED TV with an adjustable radius via the remote control. The company is using an RGB separated AMOLED panel based on low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) TFT from Samsung Display, which is running 10,000 sheets per month at an eight-generation fab.

However, Samsung Electronics did not show 60- or 70-inch AMOLED televisions. This indicates Samsung maybe experiencing difficulties in developing a larger-sized RGB separated AMOLED panel based on LTPS TFT. On the other hand, Samsung announced an 85-inch bendable UHD LCD TV, which can be adjusted to a bending radius of 4,200mm with a remote controller. This indicates that bendable TV technology is not restricted to the OLED segment.

Panasonic announced five versions of its 55-inch curved UHD OLED TV and exhibited them each with different bending points and radiuses. Panasonic has developed its AMOLED TV panel with Oxide TFT with Sony and AUO. However, Panasonic this year announced that it stopped cooperating with Sony and will develop AMOLED TV panels by itself.

Chinese TV makers including TCL, Hisense and Changhong showed their own 55-inch AMOLED TVs at CES and announced that they will begin selling these sets soon. These companies source their AMOLED TV panels from LG Display. However, they did not show curved or UHD OLED TVs.

LG announced it will launch 55- , 65-, and 77-inch Curved UHD OLED TVs in 2014. The company also said it would strengthen its dominance in the AMOLED TV market by expanding its high-end distribution channel and local VVIP marketing activity. Thus, the AMOLED TV panel market would split into two distinct segments in 2014: a high-end portion with curved and UHD OLED panels and a more mass market version with flat and full HD AMOLED panels.

Samsung Display, which has entered the AMOLED TV panel market enthusiastically, has faced difficulty with its AMOLED TV panel development. Sony and Panasonic, both of which also announced AMOLED TVs in 2013, have not clearly stated when they will launch their own AMOLED TVs. So, LG Display likely will dominate the AMOLED TV panel market in 2014.
