The AMOLED display manufacturing industry has been dominated by South Korean manufacturing giant, Samsung years. However, some Chinese OEMs, are now coming up. Although these companies are nowhere near Samsung’s level, the likes of BOE looks promising in flexible OLED manufacturing. According to the latest data from Qunzhi Consulting, in the first quarter of 2019, BOE’s market share increased to 17% and the company shipped 14.62 million pieces. The number of 65- and 75-inch panel shipments increased significantly, ranking first in the market.
BOE’s OLED panel shipments accounted for more than 11% of the world’s total shipment, ranking second only to Samsung whose shipments accounted for 81%. Chinese manufacturing giant, Huawei, has been the major customer of BOE’s flexible OLED. Huawei Mate X, Mate 20 Pro, and Huawei P30 Pro all use BOE’s OLED display. This has greatly increased the market share of BOE. The mass production of Chinese flexible OLED screens has helped the mobile phone market to further popularize flexible OLED screens. It is believed that with the preponderance of Chinese companies in the OLED business, the price of OLED displays will be friendly in a few years.
However, most phone manufacturers are concerned with the quality of the display produced by Chinese display manufacturers like BOE. Nevertheless, with the likes of Huawei already using this display, it wouldn’t take long for other OEMs to join.
