Digitimes Research: Samsung Display expected to invest nearly US$5 billion in capex for developing AMOLED panels
Ricky Tu, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Wednesday 14 May 2014]

Samsung Display is expected to make nearly US$5 billion in capital expenditures for developing AMOLED panel technology, according to Digitimes Research.

Samsung made nearly US$4 billion in expenditures in 2013 for developing AMOLED panel technology and is expected to add another US$3-5 billion in 2014 amid increasing market prospects for the technology.

The company also has intentions to expand flexible AMOLED display 6G production facilities by the end of 2014, which is likely to add another 9,000 substrates of monthly production capacity for the technology, said Digitimes Research, adding that Samsung will also invest in Ultra HD TV panel technology.

Samsung's overall revenues from AMOLED panels are expected to be higher than those for LCD technology in 2014.

LG Display meanwhile also plans to make over US$3 billion in capital expenditures for developing Ultra HD TV panel technology as well as 8G facilities for AMOLED TV panels and 6G facilities for developing LPTS handset panels.

Taiwan-based AU Optronics (AUO) and Japan-based Sharp plan capex budgets of US$670 in 2014, while Innolux is expected to make US$830 million, showing that Korea-based makers are taking more initiatives to develop Ultra HD and AMOLED TV technology in 2014, added Digitimes Research.
