This report provides a comprehensive assessment of OLED display technologies and markets in addition to the progress with other emerging display technologies including quantum dots and electrophoretic displays.
Detailed trends, supplier information and market forecasts are provided on a global basis for the following applications of OLED displays:
For each of the above, the market size is provided for the years 2017-2029 in addition to total display area in sq meters.
Additionally, data is broken out by form factor for the following categories:
The data and forecasts given are the result of extensive research including interviews with key providers of OLED materials, manufacturing equipment, panel makers and OEMs. For each of the applications above IDTechEx provides detailed assessments of the markets including the technology requirements, technology roadmap and the impact of competitive technologies, which all feed in to the forecasting model.
In 2018, the OLED industry will be worth $25.5Bn, rising to $30.3Bn in 2019. Over $15Bn has been invested in the OLED display industry from 2016 to 2018 with panel makers mainly based in China, Korea, Japan and Taiwan. The investment is coming from the need to differentiate products with better screens and new form factors, with plastic based OLEDs becoming the norm (in rigid format) leading to truly flexible OLED displays - foldable displays being the first commercial example of that, expected in 2019.
OLEDs for cellphones dominate the OLED sector, comprising of 81% of the market revenue in 2018. The second largest sector are OLED TVs which are 16% of the total market by revenue in 2018. Despite being 16% of the revenue, OLED TVs are 40% of the market by area of display. Therein is the challenge for larger area displays - cellphones have smaller displays and can command premium margins, but larger devices (including tablets) typically have lower price points and lower margins but need larger, more expensive screens (albeit with lower resolution). The third largest OLED application is wearables, which is 2% of the total OLED display market value and 0.4% by area in 2018. The thinness, flexibility and appearance of the display are desirable versus LCDs.
Historic data for 2017 is provided as a reference in addition to forecasts to 2029. Data includes OLED displays split by application and area (disguised sample shown below) and value.
In separate chapters, the report assesses each of the main layers of OLED displays including substrates, thin film transistors (TFTs), materials, barrier layers, transparent conductive film and manufacturing processes.
Options for each are assessed and compared, identifying which are being used by which application. Key players and their progress are identified.
The technology assessment also includes matching the technology against the market need. For example, the impact of the Rec.2020 digital standard for next generation ultra HD displays, to the roadmap from glass based displays to foldable displays, to the progress with printed displays and how the materials and manufacturing processes used are changing to enable that.
The latest activities of OLED companies are covered, including their state-of-the-art capability, technology and, where applicable, OLED manufacturing capacity. OLED panel makers/display providers covered include:
In assessing the display industry the report also covers the advancement of Quantum Dot Displays in different guises of
Each of these options are assessed with the outlook for versus OLED displays for different market types. Ten year forecasts are ultimate provided showing the share of the market of these different technology types.
The report also assesses other flexible display and lighting types, including for each the players, technologies, commercial success and applications. Technologies covered include
