Samsung Display Company is World's Largest Display Maker

The new entity is now the world's largest display maker with seven fabs, 39,000 employees and a 2011 sales volume of about $25.5 billion. The company said that it is focusing on smartphone, digital cameras, tablet PC, notebook PC, monitor, and TV panels using AMOLED and TFT LCD technologies.

“Samsung Display is destined to attain virtually unlimited growth, through continuous efforts to combine our proven know-how in the display field with an overwhelming creative spirit,” said Oh-hyun Kwon, previously vice chairman and CEO of Samsung Electronics, as well as CEO of Samsung Display. “Our combined strengths will guide Samsung’s display business through the next decade and longer, in turning the many synergistic benefits of the company into far-reaching, tangible results.”

The foundation for Samsung Display was created when Sony decided to leave the S-LCD joint venture with Samsung last year. Samsung paid Sony about $939 million for Sony's stake.

    Please stop calling it a "retina" display. That's one of the most annoying buzz words to come from Apple.

    When you say that your new company has the chops to "attain virtually unlimited growth" you know the business unit is in trouble.

    Probably because Apple is the one that develops them. Heck, you're using a terminology that Apple coined.

    There's always someone other than Apple doing it, but they just don't market it in the same way. NEC is the perfect example, as George21546 illustrated, and has been the dominant manufacturer of high quality displays for consumers and professionals.
