Commentary: Samsung Display to continue dominating AMOLED market until 2H17
A number of flat panel makers in Japan, Taiwan and China are said to have drawn up plans to ramp their AMOLED production capacity in order to counter the dominance enjoyed by Samsung Display in the segment. But these makers are still taking a cautious attitude toward new investments.

The slow investment activities will mean that new AMOLED production capacity from makers in Japan, Taiwan and China may not come online until the second half of 2017, allowing Samsung Display to continue to maintain its dominant status in the sector.

Obviously, concerns about oversupply of the global flat panel industry over the medium- and long-term have undermined the confidence of flat panel makers about whether they can compete effectively against Samsung Display, even after expanding capacity.

Additionally, cash flow as well as fund-raising capability at some makers, particularly those in Japan and Taiwan, are not strong enough to support additional build-up of new AMOLED production lines which are capital intensive.

In the absence of strong support from government organizations and upstream and downstream suppliers in Japan and Taiwan, it seems that only flat panel players in China will have the opportunity to grab AMOLED market share from Samsung Display in the future.
