LG Invests in OLED Fabs

LG Display is wagering heavily on OLEDs, as underscored by its recent investment of KRW2.8 trillion into a Gen 10.5 (2,940 mm X 3,370 mm) OLED production line at its P10 plant in Paju, Korea. The obvious use for a Gen 10.5 line is OLED-based TVs. The company will also invest KRW5 trillion in a new Gen 6 (1,500 mm X 1,850 mm) plastic OLED (P-OLED) production line in Paju.

According to LG, its Gen 10.5 OLED production line will be the first of its kind in the world. 
The size of mother glass produced in 10.5-generation production lines is 1.8 times larger than that in Gen 8 generation production lines.

LG does note that it will only begin mass production of OLED TVs after stabilizing the technology for producing extra-large panels and oxide backplanes for the mother glass, and determining which size large TV panels are most desired in the marketplace.
