Don't expect lower cost OLED's any time soon

 

According to DisplaySearch, manufacturing costs for 55” OLED panels are 8-10 times higher than LCD.

LG, who employ WRGB OLED on an IGZO substrate, will be able to do so for eight times the cost of a comparative LCD. Samsung, will be looking at a cost of ten times LCD for their direct-emission OLED. Although, Samsung can produce OLED at a 30% premium in small sizes (e.g. for phones and tablets), producing large panels still has comparatively lower yields and higher material costs. It will be interesting to see if Samsumg will be able to recoup that additional 25% at retail.

With such a huge manufacturing differential, it’s hard to imagine that we’ll be seeing 55” OLED’s in stores for $10,000 before the end of 2012.
