Flexible screens expected to boost display sales for 2019

Oct 10,2018
The global market revenue for foldable display panels is expected to grow 150 percent per year in the coming years, starting in 2019 when smartphone makers launch devices with flexible screens, an industry report said Tuesday.

Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), an industry tracker, said the market will start slow, reaching 3.1 million units in 2019, as Samsung Electronics and Huawei launch foldable smartphones.

Volume will grow to 63 million units in 2022 as costs and prices fall and availability improves, enabling the foldable panels to expand into tablets and other gadgets.
