OLED display producers

AU Optronics

Taiwan's AUO (AU Optronics) was formed in 2001, by the merger of Acer Display and Unipac Optoelectronics. Later in 2006 AUO merged with Quanta Display. AUO is one of the world's largest producers of LCDs.

In 2006 AUO became the world's first AMOLED producer but in 2007 the company decided to shift focus back to LCD, and stopped investing in OLEDs.

BOE Display

BOE Display, founded in 1993 in Beijing China, is one of the world's leading display maker, producing both LCDs and OLEDs. BOE also produces LCD backlighting units and solar panels.

BOE has been producing small glass-based OLEDs for some time, but the company's focus is currently in flexible and foldable OLEDs. In October 2017 BOE started to produce flexible OLED displays at its first flexible OLED line, the Chengdu B7 6-Gen fab. The annual capacity of the B7 line, when complete and at 100% yields, will be 45,000 monthly 6-Gen substrates, or about 90 million smartphone OLEDs.

Everdisplay started mass producing AMOLED displays towards the end of 2014 in a 4.5-Gen line with a monthly capacity of 20,000 substrates (EDO was China's first AMOLED maker). Since then the company added its second production fab, a 6-Gen flexible AMOLED line in Shanghai.


EDO is producing panels for wearables, smartphones, laptops, VR devices and more. Many of EDO's displays are available in the OLED marketplace.

Guangzhou New Vision Optoelectronic

Guangzhou New Vision logoNew Vision Optoelectronic was established in August 2010 in Guangzhou with an aim to become an AMOLED producer. The company is collaborating with the South China University of Technology (SCUT) and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Skyworth.

The company had setup a small pilot line capable of producing 5" to 7" Oxide-TFT AMOLED panels (including transparent ones and embedded touch panels). The company seems no longer to pursue AMOLED production, though.



Innolux was established in 2009 in Taiwan as a merger between Innolux, CMO and TPO. Both TPO and CMO had OLED subsidiaries. The company was known as Chimei Innolux up until October 2012 when it decided to change its name back to Innolux.

CMO's OLED subsidiary was called Chi Mei EL Corporation (CMEL) and was producing AMOLED displays until the merger (the company was producing panels up to 7.6" in size). TPO was developing small (3-4 inch€) AMOLED displays but did not reach mass production and faced technical difficulties.

Japan Display

Japan Display (JDI) is a small/medium display maker, formed in September 2011 by the merger of Sony's, Toshiba's and Hitachi's display businesses and funded by Japan's government fund Innovation Network Corporation (INCJ), which holds 70% of the shares.

JDI considers OLEDs to be the core technology of the next generation small size and medium size displays, and in 2017 the company announced that it is going to perform a "last-chance" restructuring to focus on OLEDs as there is "no future for the smartphone panel business without OLED". The company however didn't achieve mass production of displays beyond small wearable AMOLEDs (which it supplies to Apple).
