Samsung remains the undisputed leader of the display market

Yordan, 17 June 2019

Samsung retained its top position in the display market during the first quarter of 2019, a report from IHS Markit reveals. The Korean company shipped $3.4 billion worth of displays, which is 40.2% of the total market, but a decline of 6.6 percent points on a yearly basis.

JDI remained a distant second with a 12.3% share of the market, while BOE was the biggest gainer - it nearly doubled its share to 11.9%. In fact, IHS predicts that in Q2 BOE will easily outpace JDI and capture the second spot.

The data from IHS covers the whole display market, but analysts reveal the main reason Samsung keeps its lead is because of the OLED panels in non-flagship smartphones. Many companies try to implement this type of screen since it works with a UD fingerprint scanner.

If we take LCD out of the equation and talk about only OLED panels, then Samsung is practically unchallenged - it sold over 80% of all light-emitting-diode panels. Its main competitor in the field is the Chinese BOE and its fellow Korean manufacturer LG, with the former doubling its market share due to the impressive Huawei Mate 20 Pro sales.
