LG reported to achieve 80% yields for 4K OLED TV panels in 2015

According to news report on the Digitimes website LG Display is expected to increase yields for Ultra HD (4K) OLED TV panels to around 80% by the end of 2015 and higher into 2016, the benefits to LG Display will mean significant decrease in production costs - which should result in competitive pricing for OLED TVs from the middle of 2016.

Full HD units sized 55-inch have already dropped from around US$ 4,281 on average in 2014 to US$ 2,574 in 2015 while 4K units have dropped from US$5,499 to US$4,499. As efforts increase to increase yields and lower production costs, LG is expected to increase 4K OLED TV shipments to 1.5 million in 2016.

According to Digitimes Research OLED TV pricing is expected to remain twice that of 4K TVs through 2016, which will influence the 120% on-year expected growth in UHD TV shipments in 2015.

Market observers estimate that 4K LCD TV shipments will surpass 30 million in 2015.
