Samsung Plans to Build World's Largest OLED Plant

Samsung is planning to build the world's largest OLED plant with 30% more production capacity that its A3 plant, reports ETNews. The company is hoping to snatch up demand before other companies gain the technical skills required to make OLED displays.

According to industries on the 28th, Samsung Display has started constructing 6th generation flexible OLED production line called ‘A5 (tentative name)’, which has production capacity of 180,000 panels per month and up to 270,000 panels per month, at its new sites in Cheonan and Asan. It notified such plan to some of its main front-end process equipment manufacturers and is mediating with them regarding schedule for supply and demand of equipment.

“Although size of entire investment and schedule can chance since Samsung Display did not exchange any LOI (Letter of Intent), we can guess its intention to construct a new plant and size of investment from the fact that it shared its investment plans with its major front-end process equipment manufacturers.”
