LG Display Co. has announced that it is planning to make investments to boost production of plastic OLED displays ahead of an expected surge in demand for wearable devices and smartphones. The company has been reported as the exclusive supplier of screens for the initial batch production of Apple's first smartwatch.

LG Display CEO Han Sang-beom said: "We will consider during H2 whether to invest to add an additional production line (for the screens)."

LG Display supplies plastic OLED displays to LG Electronics, for the LG Group affiliate's curved-display G Flex smartphone, the company said it would need to expand production capacity to meet growing demand for new handsets and wearable devices.

The use of plastic OLED displays for mobile devices is anticipated to grow because the displays are lightweight and can be curved to accommodate novel forms of smartphones and smartwatches that will soon hit the market worldwide.

At the Display Industry Awards given by the Society for Information Display (SID) in San Diego, LG Display received the Gold Award for Display Application of the Year for its flexible plastic OLED panel used in the LG G Flex, the world's first curved smartphone. The company also received the Silver Award for Display of the Year for the world's first curved OLED TV panel.
