45% of all smartphones sold in 2022 will have an OLED display

Nearly half of all smartphones sold in 2022 will have an OLED panel. This information has been received from a new report. According to a report by Trendforce, this reflects the growing popularity of organic light-emitting diode display technology in the smartphone market.

The report states that 39.8 percent of all smartphones sold in 2021 have OLED panels. On the other hand, 45 percent of the total handsets sold in 2022 are expected to sport this type of display.

The research analytics-based firm said the widespread adoption of OLED and OLED display technology by major smartphone makers such as Apple and Samsung is one of the primary reasons for the jump in the market share of OLED-equipped devices.
However, the display driver IC supply for OLED panels is currently unable to meet the high demand.

The report states that these chipsets are relatively large compared to other chips, so fewer numbers can be made per wafer.

Most display drivers use 40-nanometer to 28-nanometer processes for the IC.
Currently, some foundries such as TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Ring Co. Ltd.), Samsung Electronics, UMC and GlobalFoundries can manufacture display driver ICs for OLEDs.
