Demand for AMOLED panels from Chinese smartphone manufacturers rising

In response to changing designs trends Chinese smartphone manufacturers are buying AMOLED panels to develop new flagship models that are expected to be launched in 2017

Digitimes has reported that supply of AMOLED panels for smartphone applications could see shortages during 2017 largely due to growing orders from China-based smartphone manufacturers, according to sources within the Taiwanese mobile phone supply chain.

The report went on to say that Chinese smartphone manufacturing have recently stepped up their procurement of AMOLED panels on rising speculations that Apple will employ AMOLED technology in its next-generation iPhone devices expected in 2017.

In response to changing designs trends Chinese smartphone manufacturers are buying AMOLED panels to develop new flagship models that are also expected to be launched in 2017.

Although Samsung Display continues to expand its production of AMOLED panels (see Samsung Display AMOLED shipments to increase to 560 million units in 2019), demand from Apple and Chinese smartphone smartphone manufacturers in 2017 could outpace the supply capacity from Samsung.
