Flexible display is a thin, rollable display used in a variety of applications such as e-paper, digital signage, smartphone, TV, and other consumer products. Flexible displays are on LCD, e-paper, LED or OLED. Out of these display technologies, flexible OLED display is the advanced type of display. These displays are looked upon as the future mainstream display for a number of consumer products. There have been significant developments going on in the field of flexible electronics and printed display. From the past few years, many industry participants and consumers have aspired of a display technology that would break through the limitations of glass-based displays like weight, size, and ruggedness. The advent of flexible display would overcome these limitations. Flexible display-based devices have started entering the “consumer goods” market. However, it is still at the novelty stage, since it has not penetrated the reasonable number of audience.
This report covers all the aspects of flexible display market, in terms of technologies, components, applications, and geography. This report covers the flexible display applications like e-reader, smartphone, tablet, laptop, smartcard, wearable display, POP/ESL, and TV. Out of all the applications, only e-paper and e-reader have accounted for a reasonable market share in flexible display market. Rest all the applications are in prototype and R&D phase. In addition, flexible display smartphone is going to get launched by the end of 2012. This report forecasts the flexible display application market from 2012 to 2017.
This report covers the technologies used for flexible display. There are two basic display technology types covered; such as emissive and non-emissive. Emissive display comprises OLED and e-paper display technology, whereas non-emissive display comprises LCD and LCOS. In the overall “flexible display” market, e-paper display targets the applications like smartcard, POP/ESL, wearable display, etc. Flexible OLED display targets the applications like smartphone, TV, laptop, tablet, etc. LCD targets the applications like e-reader, laptop, TV, etc. However, emissive displays are more compatible as a flexible display than non-emissive. Hence, flexible display market is likely to have larger market share for emissive display types. This report forecasts the flexible display technology market from 2012 to 2017.
