Japan PCB Firms May Lose Ground in OLED Sector


Reading time ( words)

Japan-based PCB makers are likely to be further marginalized if Apple's reportedly plans to launch three 5G iPhones all based on OLED technology are realized, according to sources from Taiwan's PCB supply chain.

Since the lamination of PCBs used in handset displays has been carried out through direct cooperation between PCB and display makers, the adoption of OLED for Apple's 5G phones—with the panels likely to be supplied mainly by Korea's display makers—means Korea's PCB firms would replace rival Japanese companies to become major PCB suppliers for OLED displays, said the sources.
