A place for OLED unification was held for Korea’s OLED industry which used to be divided. The two sides of Korean OLED industry, Samsung Display and LG Display, both attended the 1st OLED KOREA Conference, examining what lies ahead for OLED. This marks the beginning of future OLED display industry where worldwide OLED industry and Korean OLED industry are united.
The division within Korean OLED industry started when LG Display began to produce 55 inch OLED panel when Samsung was the only company that manufactured OLED panel. They each accused the other company of copying their technology and reported to the prosecution and thus the division was born. Last week, they both announced the end of legal disputes. However, although the trial for Samsung’s technology leakage has ended, the prosecution for LG’s technology is continuing. As this is a criminal case, the prosecution has to withdraw charges before it concludes.
In order to end the division within the Korean industry that began from Samsung and LG’s disputes, and to bring together worldwide OLED industry, UBI Research held the OLED KOREA Conference (April 2). 16 OLED experts from Korea, Japan, and China, including from Samsung Display and LG Display, forecast the future of OLED industry and discussed how OLED industry could succeed.
After the conference, approximately 40 industry-academic professionals attended VIP party and commented that the success of the conference was due to Samsung’s presence. Chang Hoon Lee who attended both OLED KOREA Conference and VIP party, and spoke with key speakers mentioned that Samsung will continue to be an axis for OLED industry and lead Korean and international OLED industry. The experts who attended the VIP event expressed hope that future OLED KOREA Conference would aid in the process of Korea, which is OLED device production oriented, becoming the mecca for OLED industry.
