AMOLED Shortage Could Turn Into a Surplus in 2011

Samsung’s Super AMOLED displays power some of the most popular handsets and devices on the market today, but a supply chain shortage has had a dramatic impact on OEM’s both large and small. It’s a problem that has taken most of the year to solve, but it appears as though Samsung might finally be prepared to make amends in 2011 with more production facilities finally coming online, along with new competitors from Korea, Taiwan, and Singapore.
This additional capacity is likely going to lead to better prices and vastly improved availability going into 2011, a trend that anyone on the market for a new device should be thankful for. China is also rumored to be working on an OLED supply chain as well, which if true should finally put all of the supply issues to bed once and for all.
