Sharp withdraws from manufacturing OLED panels for smartphone


Undisputed number one among the manufacturers of OLED panels Samsung eats almost 90 of a market from which an illustrious one like Sharp withdraws

The Japanese Sharp has just announced its financial results for this second quarter of 2019 that we have just finished, and the truth is that according to what is seen they are nothing flattering in an industry that has become competitive to the highest level.

According to the statement published by Sharp its revenue in Q2 2019 has been $ 4.8 billion, which supposes a loss of 4% in the interannual ratio and leaves a net profit of 117 million dollars, figures 35% lower than those registered in 2018.

Sharp renounces its OLED panel business for smartphones, as the fierce competition and a Samsung with almost 90% of the market makes it impossible for them to be profitable

It's Sharp's first business crash since its purchase by part of the Hon Hai Group, partly because the company has not been able to compete from you to you in the OLED panel market , where Chinese and Korean firms dominate with an iron hand with Samsung reigning.

In fact, Sharp has only sold about 60,000 OLED panels for smartphones in the period from April to June 2019 , and apparently, as Business Korea tells us, it has made the decision to stop producing this type of panels since last July.

Analysts said at the beginning of the year that Sharp would surely grow as its OLED panel business did, since having Foxconn as its parent it was logical that the Japanese manufactured OLED panels for the iPhone .

However, the OLED panel market continues today dominated by Samsung Display with 87.2% of share , eating a market that distributes the crumbs between BOE with 5.9%, Ever Display with 3.2%, and Tianma and Visionox with 1.3% respectively each.

Not even LG Display can has cer front keeping a 1.0% share despite distributing panels for example for made by Google devices, although in their case they are trying to close agreements to expand their base of customers and grow their business, and in fact they will soon start assembling their screens on next-generation Apple devices.

The competition is fierce and the 0.1% market share registered by Sharp in this Q2 of 2019 has not been enough for a firm considered the queen of LCDs, which will give up its business of small OLED panels to focus on their main markets.
