LG Display's OLED plant in Guangzhou will begin mass production this monthAccording to industry watchers, cited by The Elec, LG Display's OLED plant in Guangzhou will begin mass production at the end of January - right after the Chinese New Year holidays, which end on January 28. The plant was ready on August 29, 2019, as planned, but due to yield issues the start of the operations was delayed. At CES 2020, LG Display CEO Jung Ho-young said that the problem has been identified and solved. Once the plant begins operations, LG Display will increase its production by up to 90,000 panels a month. Currently, the Guangzhou plant is capable of producing 60,000 Gen-8.5 OLED panels a month. Equipment that can add around 30,000 more panels was found to have entered the plant at the end of 2019. A 90,000 monthly production would be even higher than the 70,000 produced from its domestic OLED plant.Source
