Despite the recent slowdown in OLED small/medium flexible panel production, BOE announced a new Gen 6 flexible OLED plant in Chongqing, a city where they already have a large (140,000 sheets/month) LCD plant.  The new plant is expected to have raw  capacity  of  48,000  sheets/month,  built  in  2  phases,  and  will  take  28  months, which would put its opening in 3Q 2020.  This will make the 5 th  OLED fab under the BOE name, which range from Gen 5.5 to Gen 10.5, although only two of the five are currently in production, and one of those two is based on rigid substrates.  The new fab  is  expected  to  cost  USD 7.3b,  a  part  of  which  will  be  borne  by  the  regional government.  BOE’s  OLED  build-out  rivals  that  of  the  capacity  leader, Samsung Display and would put BOE in 3 rd  place behind SDC and LG Display in raw small panel OLED capacity by the end of 2020, and while Samsung will still have a commanding market share at that point, BOE’s aggressive stance will move it from a late start in 2015 to what will be the #2 position in flexible small panel OLED displays by 2021. – OLED Musings
