Samsung Display’s CEO, Park Dong-gun, said that the time is not yet ripe for OLED TV panel investment for SDC. While Samsung already have the related production and infrastructure technology to produce OLED TVs, they are still waiting for decisions at Samsung Electronics.

LG is selling more OLED TVs in a month then they did in the whole of 2013, will bring prices down further
There’s an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal dicussing LG’s OLED TV push. According to the WSJ, LG is currently selling more OLED TVs in a month than it did in all of 2013. This is great, of course, but LG probably only sold a few thousand (some estimate around 3,000) OLED TVs in 2013, so monthly volume is still very low. While nobody expected the OLED TV market to take off in 2014, this will hopefully change in 2015. Towards the end of 2014 LG is expected to bring its M2 production fab online , which should increase capacity dramatically (about 150,000 55″ OLED panels in a month at 100% yield) – and bring prices even lower . Even today, LG says that production yields are approaching those of LCDs, which will help them be even more flexible with prices.
