Samsung Elec. leading AMOLED market has problems with Galaxy series. AMOLED market has rapidly improved due to sale increase of GalaxyS3 until the fourth quarter of 2012 but sales and shipments have continuously been stagnant during three quarters.

The opening of curved smart phone market with flexible AMOLED and OLED TV market can be a key for AMOLED industry.
