Production yield of Samsung Display’s QD-OLED is said to be 75 percent. Above all, Samsung wants to use this communication to motivate its employees.
An unusual move by Samsung Display, which has communicated information to its employees about the performance of salable QD OLED screens. Most of the time, display manufacturers like to keep a low profile on the level of waste during production. Not only not to worry employees, investors and third parties, but also to ensure that competitors do not have deep knowledge of their own figures. However, according to Samsung Display, a 75 percent production yield (25 percent of QD OLED screens made, therefore not suitable for sale) is impressive.
QD-OLED production yield expected to rise to 90 percent
Samsung Display has published the figures mainly from its own staff. Because many employees expressed concern about the competitiveness of the QD-OLED panels that are manufactured on the Asan production line in Chungcheong, South Korea. Especially when you’re up against such an established competitor like LG with its OLED WRGB displays. If the figures are correct, employees should first pat themselves on the back. But there may not be time for that. Anyone familiar with the Korean work ethic knows that 75 percent is not enough. The board of directors is said to have encouraged employees to increase the value to 90 percent in the coming months.
Up to 1 million QD OLED TVs per year
Samsung Display began shipping QD OLED panels in November 2021. The production plant is said to be able to process 30,000 QD OLED panel mother lenses per month. If this volume can be fully exploited, around a million 55-inch and 65-inch QD OLED TVs could roll off the production line each year. Samsung Display sells the QD OLED TV panels to its parent company Samsung Electronics and Sony, while Samsung and Dell also buy smaller QD OLED panels for gaming monitors.
Samsung Electronics remains skeptical
Samsung Electronics is marketing its announced QD OLED TV S95B not like a flagship TV. Concerns about whether enough units can be made for profitable commercialization of the technology are too great. While end users are very interested in the new technology, Samsung Electronics seems to be extremely skeptical. It remains to be hoped that the promising technology does not disappear as quickly as this one. Samsung’s first OLED TVs!
