The flexible display screens market is yet to establish itself as the first devices based upon flexible display technologies will be launched in the latter part of 2013. Samsung are planning to capitalize on this new technology by being the first to market for a mobile device built with a flexible display screen. Flexible display screens are still a very new technology and they are expected to improve with time, however visiongain believes that the industry will flourish over the next five years. Visiongain has determined that the value of the global flexible display screens market will reach $260.3 million in 2013.

The technology is increasingly gaining credibility amongst the critics as more people are discussing and keenly anticipating the launch of flexible display screen based devices. Although it is still in its very early phase compared to other technologies which have been tried and tested, however visiongain calculates that flexible display screens will become the benchmark technology for mobile devices and TV's by the end of the forecast period in 2018.

Research and development of flexible display screens has been a growing trend amongst consumer electronics manufacturers in the last few years, as they were trying to find ways to commercialize the technology. The market prospects look promising for the prospective players in the flexible display screen devices ecosystem.
