December 2, 2021

Latest company news about Samsung converts two LCD lines to OLED production and stops LCD production in 2022

Core reminder: On December 1, Samsung Display planned to completely exit the LCD panel market last year, but due to the surge in demand for LCD panels, the company changed its exit schedule. The company was later scheduled to close the LCD business in March 2021, but this did not happen either, probably due to demand. The company is currently seeking to completely shut down LCD panel production in 2022 and has already begun to implement the plan.

A report from South Korea shows that Samsung has switched multiple production lines to OLED panels, and currently only one LCD panel production line is still running. According to reports, the company discontinued the L7-1 production line in 2016 and switched to the sixth-generation OLED production line, which was later renamed the A4-1 production line.

This year, Samsung Display has discontinued the L7-2LCD production line in the first quarter of this year. This line is also being converted into a 6th generation OLED production line, which will be renamed A4E production line. Also discontinued is the L8-1 production line, which stopped LCD production in the first quarter of this year. The company is also looking for buyers for the idle LCD production equipment in the factory.

The report also pointed out that Samsung Display only operates the L8-2 LCD panel production line in Asan, South Korea. However, this production line for LCD panels used in TVs and IT products is not expected to run for a long time. Samsung has set a total exit timetable for 2022.
