At present, Samsung takes the lead in the development of OLED technologies around the globe. Samsung has invested USD4 billion on OLED just in 2012. In April 2012, Samsung invested USD6.5 billion to set up Samsung Display, so as to accelerate the development progress of OLED. In order to transcend Samsung, LG (another OLED enterprise in South Korea) plans to slow down the small-sized AMOLED capacity of existing 3rd generation and 4.5 generation plants, and specialize in the mass production of large-sized AMOLED products.
As the enterprise with prime development of OLED in Japan, Sony fails to achieve breakthrough in arena of OLED TV. In order to strengthen the share in medium and small-sized panel market and accelerate the development in arena of OLED, Sony, Toshiba and Hitachi merged their medium and small-sized display business in 2011, and set up a new company – Japan display. Since the new company integrates the technical strengths of Sony, Hitachi and Toshiba and gets support from the Investment Fund predominated by Japanese government, it embraces huge development potential.
