According to a marketing agency with sources within LCD manufacturing companies, nine players will be pushing the 8K panel market next year, across seven different sizes. Samsung will have the largest range, with 65”, 75”, 82” and 98” panels. Next comes LG, who’ll be focusing on 65” and 75” but will also have a 98” model. Sharp seems to be bucking the trend, and will be unique in introducing 70” and 80” sizes.

Smaller companies saving on development costs will be sticking with larger sizes, such as BOE Technology and CEC, who will exclusively make high-end 98” panels, and CSOT, who’ll manufacture 85” displays. One of the largest but least known manufacturers is AU Optronics, who make most displays used by monitor companies including Acer and BenQ. They expect 8K to account for 10% of panels over 65” by 2020, and will make 65”, 75” and 85” variants.
