According to reports, LG Display will start producing mid-sized W-OLED panels, as it is concerned that demand for TV panels is on the decline.

LGD will start producing 27-inch WOLED panels as early as by the end of October, targeting small TVs and gaming monitors. LGE will be LGD's first customer, and it plans to release its 27-inch OLED display in Q1 2023.

LGD also plans to introduce a larger 32" WOLED panel, which will enter production towards the end of 2022. In addition, LGD will increase production of its ~40-inch panels. LG's focus on smaller panels was already reported a few months ago. The company also demonstrated a 30-inch transparent OLED a few days ago.

LG Electronics is already selling 31.5" OLED monitors and also 27" OLED monitors, but these use JOLED's printed panels and not LG Display's WOLEDs, and they carry a very high price tag.
