Citing data from industry representatives, the source claims global shipments of flexible AMOLED panels for folding smartphones will exceed 12 million units this year. This is more than last year. The growth is driven by the release of new models of such devices by leading brands.
Interestingly, in 2018, when there were no smartphones with folding screens on the market, experts from the analytical company IHS Markit predicted rapid growth in folding AMOLED displays for smartphones. In particular, they predicted that 5.2 million of these displays would be shipped in 2020 and 17.5 million in 2021.
