DisplaySearch Sees Expanded Growth for OLED Displays

April 23, 2008
Display market research and consulting firm DisplaySearch has reported, in its OLED Technology Report, that sales of Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) displays are expected to surge 69% to more than US$826.5 million in 2008, and then grow by 83% in 2009 and 53% in 2010 as Active Matrix OLED (AMOLED) displays become mainstream.

According to DisplaySearch's Senior Advisor and Consultant Barry Young, "2008 will be a break-out year for AMOLED displays as Samsung SDI, LG Display, Sony and CMEL deliver almost 17M displays, which is up over 380% compared to 2007. The displays will be used in products such as mobile phones, digital cameras, digital photo frames, handheld TVs and free standing TVs." Young added, "By 2009, OLED display manufacturers are expected to commence shipments of displays for notebooks and then move rapidly into TVs, building on the success of the Sony XEL-1, arguably the TV with the most vivid and realistic image."

This 550-page report is a comprehensive examination of the OLED industry covering virtually every segment from material, devices, manufacturing, applications, equipment, lighting, costs, participants, and forecasts of display shipments, revenues, ASP and area by application and technology.

The OLED Technology Report is available immediately and comes with an optional small/medium cost of ownership model and a model for calculating the organic material volume and revenue. For more information on the DisplaySearch 2008 OLED Technology Report, please contact [email protected].
