LG will shut down its LCD glass substrate production by the end of 2020Korean media report that LG will shut down its LCD glass substrate production by the end of 2020. The information comes from a regulatory filing, in which the company says, "Based on calculations that the business would be difficult to turn around, we have reached the decision to shut down." Last year, LG Display halted the operation of its production lines for Gen-8 LCDs for TVs in Paju. The Gen-y LCD lines will seize production by the end of this year. As of 2021, LG will not produce LCD panels for TVs.

Samsung is expected to shut down even more LCD production lines to make room for its QD display line also known as the Q1 line, which will produce two glass substrates for QD displays.Source
