BOE has been dominating the Chinese market with its LCD panels. With China’s pursuit of enormous capital is getting stronger, BOE being China’s No.1 display company has secured the self-luminous display, and its main objective is to commercialize QD OLED (Quantum Dot Organic Light Emitting Diode) and OLED OS (Silicon on Organic Light-Emitting Diode).
BOE’s self-luminous display is being prepared as a product for the Chinese market because the Korean companies have already invested in their R & D towards next-generation displays. BOE has already been planning to implement its OLED displays in the next-generation market. It plans to secure the market with small to large, rigid to foldable panels even if it loses profitability.

In fact, at the recent International Information Display Society event, BOE has unveiled a prototype similar to QD OLED, which Samsung is planning to mass-produce from the beginning of next year.
Quantum dot organic light-emitting diodes are self-luminous displays in which a blue organic light-emitting diode element is being used as a light source and the color is being embodied by the quantum dot color filter. It is characterized by superior color reproducibility and brightness compared to LG’s mass-produced large organic light-emitting diodes.

BOE added weight to the possibility of entering the market by exhibiting a prototype QD LED produced by the IJP (inkjet printing) method. It is also planning to produce it in a display plant in Hefei, China along with Tokyo Electron (TEL).
Inkjet Printing significantly reduces material use efficiency and component material cost compared to vacuum deposition process technology which is used to manufacture OLED displays.
The company demonstrated a 55-inch 8K display produced on a coplanar Oxide TFT backplane, with a top-emissive structure. The backplane, based on 8.5-Gen glass (which are cut to 6 pieces for the inkjet process). It also uses a 1G1D structure which is capable of driving the display at 120Hz.
Furthermore, BOE is also looking to enter the silicon-on organic light-emitting diode market which LG has unveiled at the International Information Display Society event.
Silicon on Organic Light-Emitting Diode is a technology that can produce ultra-small, high-resolution micro-displays by depositing organic light-emitting diode on a silicon base and has the ability to function virtual reality and augmented reality devices.
During the same event, LG has also announced its Silicon on Organic Light-Emitting Diode with a 0.42-inch HD-level resolution. The company also claimed to join the virtual and augmented reality markets.
Market research firm DSCC predicts that due to TV demands in the Q3 from the US and Chinese market, prices of 32-55-inch LCD panels are likely to increase by 11.7% due to less production.
