IHS Markit has been quoted as saying that the production cost differences between OLEDs and LCDs for the popular 5.5″ HD configuration have reduced to the point where OLEDs (at $12.1) are now cheaper than LCDs ($12.2), although the difference increases for higher resolution displays and the costs for OLEDs could be 30% higher than for LCDs.

Digitimes Research has forecast that Chinese OLED makers will increase their capacity from 272,000 m² in 2016 to 1.584 million m² in 2018.
