Merck opens an OLED Technology Center China in the Pilot Free Trade Zone, Shanghai, China, at the Merck Performance Materials China Hub. The center offers a range of state-of-the-art equipment and cleanroom facilities to enable OLED device fabrication and characterization. It should serve as a collaboration space for customers and Merck as they work together to generate the solutions for OLED display products. The company wants to create with this investment a customer-centric approach developing highly pure, reliable, and efficient OLED materials for innovative products in line with market requirements and in support of customer innovations.
IHS Markit estimated that by 2020, China’s OLED display production capacity will account for 28 % of the global market, making China the second-largest supplier of OLED displays in the world.
