ETNews: LGD is evaluating 8.5 Gen OLED production equipment

Demand for IT OLED displays used in laptops, tablets and monitors is on the rise, and OLED makers (Led by Samsung Display) are rushing to develop 8.5-Gen OLED deposition technologies to increase IT display production capacity. Last month DSCC said that there are currently 11 different 15K G8.5 IT OLED lines under development.

ETNews now reports that LG Display is one of the companies looking to construct 8.5-Gen OLED lines. LGD is already evaluation production equipment,such as vertical deposition tools by Sunic Systems, deposition sources by YAS and more.

LG Display's main goal is to become a supplier for Apple's OLED laptops, which are expected to hit the market in 2025. LGD also hopes to be a supplier for Apple's tablets, but these will use smaller displays that could be produced at its existing 6-Gen production lines.

ETNews says LGD hopes to complete its evaluation in early 2023.
