The share of smartphones equipped with OLED and AMOLED displays in total sales continues to grow. This is according to new data by TrendForce. We estimate that this year, devices with an AMOLED screen will account for 39.8% of the total mass of new smartphones. In 2022, this figure may increase to 45%. In other words, almost half of all devices sold will have a panel of this type.
Analysts say this picture is primarily due to the fact that the choice in favor of AMOLED is increasing by leading smartphone suppliers, including Samsung and Apple. However, for the foreseeable future, there may be a shortage of circuits in need to drive AMOLED displays. Currently, only a few companies can produce such components – TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company), Samsung Electronics, UMC and GlobalFoundries.
As AMOLED panels see increased adoption, the consumption of AMOLED DDI will undergo a corresponding increase as well. However, not only are the process technologies in use for AMOLED DDI manufacturing currently in short supply; but some foundries are also yet to finalize their schedules for expanding their AMOLED DDI production capacities. Due to the lack of sufficient production capacity, the increase in AMOLED panel shipment may potentially be constrained next year.
However, according to reports, the current supply of OLED display driver chips is in short supply. This is also affecting the application of OLED screens in the field of smartphones. If this type of chip is sufficiently supplied, the proportion of OLED screen smartphones this year is expected to be higher.
