The share of smartphones equipped with OLED and AMOLED displays in total sales continues to grow. This is evidenced by the data released by TrendForce.
It is estimated 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 be equipped with a panel of this type.
Analysts say this picture is primarily due to the fact that the choice in favor of AMOLED is increasingly made by leading smartphone suppliers, including Samsung and Apple.
However, for the foreseeable future, there may be a shortage of integrated circuits required to drive AMOLED displays. Currently, only a few enterprises can produce such components – TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company Limited), Samsung Electronics, UMC and GlobalFoundries.
It should be noted that the global market continues to experience a shortage of electronic chips. The deficit has affected a wide variety of segments of the IT industry – from smartphones and televisions to personal computers and cars.
