BOE May Eat into LG Show’s Market Share for 2023 iPhones


Analyst agency UBI claims that BOE may eat into the market share of LG Show because it appears to be like to ramp up the manufacturing of OLED panels for 2023 iPhones. The Chinese language show producer is reportedly doing so by changing three of its factories into OLED panel manufacturing services for Apple.

Till now, BOE has manufactured older shows for iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 at services in China, accounting for 10 p.c of all iPhone shows manufactured in 2021.

It’s estimated that by Q422, BOE would be capable of manufacture 144,000 substrates each month, up from 96,000 at present. It will outdo Samsung Show’s manufacturing capability of 140,000 substrates per 30 days and set up the provider as a critical competitor. By Q422, BOE’s manufacturing capability is predicted to exceed LG Show, making it Apple’s major provider for iPhone shows someday round 2023.

The risk to LG Show is imminent since Apple is its solely shopper for Gen 6 OLED panels whereas Samsung Show and BOE are extra aggressive and produce other shoppers to fall again on. Additional, BOE’s enlargement may spell bother for LG because it shut its smartphone division and stopped manufacturing LCD panels for iPhones earlier this 12 months.

Our Take

For years now, Samsung has been Apple’s go-to provider for iPhone shows and BOE has been making an attempt to squeeze into that equation. Since late 2019, studies steered that the latter bought some headway. It then turned a Samsung rival, with its present manufacturing capability. If UBI Analysis’s evaluation is correct, BOE may surpass Samsung Show’s throughput within the subsequent couple of years.
