According to a report by Korean media The Bell on March 22, Samsung Display (SDC) will completely terminate LCD panel production in June 2022.
According to DIGITIMES, citing the report, Samsung Display's June stop of LCD production at its L8-2 plant will mark the end of its LCD panel business.
In 2017, Samsung Display closed four 5th-generation production lines for small and medium-sized LCD panels in South Korea, sold production equipment to Chinese panel manufacturers, and leased vacant factories to associated Samsung Electro-Mechanics and Samsung Electronics.
DIGITIMES reported that Samsung Display shut down a large-size LCD panel 7th-generation production line in 2016 and January 2021. Among them, the first factory has been converted to the 6th generation OLED panel production line, and the second factory is undergoing a similar conversion.
In addition, in the first half of 2021, Samsung Display sold its 8.5-generation LCD production line in East China to China Star Optoelectronics (CSOT), and the remaining L8-1 and L8-2 became its only LCD panel factories.
At present, Samsung Display has converted L8-1 into a QD-OLED production line. While the company has not decided on the future use of the L8-2, it could also be transformed into an 8th-generation OLED panel production line.
