OLED driving smart phone display panel market in 2021 – analyst

24 Mar 2022

Top three vendors – Samsung Display, BOE Tech, and LG Display – account for 72% of the market.

The global smart phone display panel market recorded a revenue of $46 billion in 2021 (calendar year), according to Strategy Analytics’ (SA) Handset Component Technologies service report, Smartphone Display Panel Market Share Q4 2021: Samsung Display Achieves 50 Percent Share.

According to SA’s research, the smart phone display panel recorded more than 5 percent annual revenue growth. Samsung Display dominated the market with 49 percent revenue share followed by BOE Technology with 16 percent and LG Display with 8 percent in 2021.

The report estimates that the top-three display panel vendors captured nearly 72 percent revenue share in the global smart phone display panel market.

Jeffrey Mathews, Senior Analyst at SA, commented, “OLED display panels saw increased adoption in the supply chains of leading smart phone OEMs. We note more than 600 million OLED panels for smart phones were shipped to OEMs.

“The OLED segment continued to see strong momentum in terms of customer demand. However, the shortage of display driver ICs and increasing BOM restricted the growth of the OLED segment and allowed LCD panels to capture volumes,” he added.

‘Intense competition for OLED displays’

Stephen Entwistle, Vice President of the Strategic Technologies Practice at Strategy Analytics added, “Smart phone display panel technology is set to be a strong point of differentiation this year. We forecast intense competition for OLED displays as leading smart phone OEMs continue to seek more display suppliers to counter cost and supply challenges.”
