Plastic and flexible OLED to reach $18bn by 2020

IDTechEx Research has released new forecasts for the OLED display market. OLED is an emissive display technology which is gaining significant market share against LCD. OLED was initially adopted in mobile phones but can now be found in tablets, TVs and wearables. This latest IDTechEx Research report, OLED Display Forecasts 2016-2026: The Rise of Plastic and Flexible Displays, says the market will reach nearly $16bn this year and will grow to $57bn in 2026. By Dr Guillaume Chansin, Senior Technology Analyst.

OLED lighting: will it eventually disrupt or fade away?

OLED lighting technology has faced a difficult challenge since the very beginning in the shape of inorganic LEDs. The challenge was that LED lighting got there first and leveraged its accumulated production experience to improve its performance and to reduce its costs. This in turn created a large gap between the two technologies that shows no signs of narrowing. By Dr. Khasha Ghaffarzadeh, Head of Consulting, IDTechEx.

Second Chance for OLED Lighting?

By Dr Norman Bardsley & Dr Khasha Ghaffarzadeh OLED technology is improving rapidly and now gives the best performance in displays for mobile phones. The technology has also reached the level at which substantial penetration of the lighting market might be possible, provided stringent cost targets can be met. Light fixtures such as those shown below have created excitement amongst lighting designers and luminaire manufacturers. Indeed, the initial driver for market adoption is likely to be based on design features of OLEDs, as opposed to its efficiency or cost savings.

OLED Lighting developments in Japan

OLED Lighting developments in Japan
According to analyst company IDTechEx, OLED and LED lighting are expected to compete directly in many instances in order to gain market share in the next decade. As discussed in the newly launched report, OLED vs LED Lighting 2013-2023: Forecasts, Technologies, Players LED lighting has come a long way and offers a better performance than OLEDs, and that at a lower cost. OLED lighting will therefore only gain market success if it clearly defines its unique selling points and carves out initial market niches. In that case, the market for OLED lighting is expected to reach $1.3 Billion by 2023.

Flexible OLED lighting developments in East Asia

Flexible OLED lighting developments in East Asia
OLED lighting developments are taking place worldwide, with a lot of the research focused on phosphorescent OLED materials, which have a theoretical luminous efficacy four times higher than fluorescent materials. Last month, Konica Minolta unveiled its new flexible OLED lighting panels at the Lighting Fair 2013 exhibition in Tokyo. The company has developed its own blue phosphorescent materials, enabling it to commercialize the world's first OLED panels using only phosphorescent materials.

OLEDs and the beginning of the end for LCDs

by Raghu Das, CEO, IDTechEx LCD panel makers in Taiwan, Japan and Korea have been suffering. Despite the growing demand for LCDs the high number of panel makers and new competition from China has resulted in tough price competition for panel makers, to the point that many panel makers are no longer profitable. In 2012, Samsung Electronics moved their LCD business units into a separate entity. One report suggests that the Taiwanese have invested $60 Billion in the LCD industry and seen a return of just $40 Billion. Some Japanese makers, despite having superb technology, have seen recent losses in some cases equal cumulative profits of the preceeding 5 to 10 years. Restructuring is therefore afoot. In the last few weeks Samsung purchased a 3% stake in Sharp. Japan Display Inc (JDI), puts together small and mid sized LCD panel manufacture units from Sony, Hitachi and Toshiba, focusing on automotive, cellphone and digital camera displays (not TV). Meanwhile, the Chinese are quickly moving into LCD panel production. For many years the top five in the LCD business, in order, were Samsung, LG Display, Innolux, AUO and Sharp. Now, as evidence of China's progress, in late 2012 Chinese BOE is number 5 for notebooks and monitors and China Star (CSOT) number five for TVs.

OLED vs LED Lighting

By Cathleen Thiele, Technology Analyst, IDTechEx The latest devolopments in the OLED lighting space will be one of the major topics at the forthcoming Printed Electronics USA 2012 conference & exhibition). The event, being held on December 5-6 in the heart of silicon valley at Santa Clara, CA, USA, focuses on the commercialization of the technology, covering broadly organic, inorganic, thin film and flexible nanotechnologies.

Intelligent Lighting: Realising Responsive, Smart Illumination

Intelligent Lighting: Realising Responsive, Smart Illumination
Intelligent lighting: realising responsive, smart illumination By Dr. Harry Zervos, Technology Analyst The concept of intelligent lighting has drastically changed in recent years, moving away from applications relating to stage lighting and non-stationary illumination in order to encompass sustainability in energy consumption, through the ability to wirelessly control on/off and dimming/brightening functions according to sensory input from the environment of operation. Whether incorporated as part of building automation or integrated in civil infrastructure in the wider idea of a smarter city, it involves utilization of wireless sensor, connectivity and energy harvesting technologies, allowing for more sustainable practices. Spearheaded by applications such as wireless switches for light controls by companies like EnOcean, it is now growing into something much larger and much more pervasive.

OLEDs vs. LEDs in lighting applications

The OLED lighting industry is still in its infancy. The price points are several orders of magnitude above those projected by industry roadmaps and even more off cost targets that are required for widespread market uptake. There is still no set of standards or consensus in the industry on optimal device architecture (stack, double layer, etc), manufacturing technique (evaporation, solution processing or hybrid) or manufacturing toolkit. It is not even clear how OLED lighting can borrow from techniques developed and scaled for the OLED display industry.

Exploring Opportunities for Printed Electronics in East Asia

There have been three billion-dollar success stories in printed and organic electronics so far - and in each Asia has been a key driving factor. The first is OLED displays. These are not printed today but made in high volume by evaporation methods. After twenty years from their conception the market is now taking off, thanks largely to the investment from Samsung, seeking to differentiate its smart phone display technology versus the key competition, Apple. This has led to OLEDs becoming a market of more than $6 Billion this year, up from $1 billion just two years ago. Samsung and LG are now following up with OLED TVs expected to be launched later this year or early next year. Samsung are using LTPS TFT technology, LG metal oxide TFT technology for the backplane.
