Market Report Description

The Global Organic LED Market size is expected to reach $74.8 billion by 2026, rising at a market growth of 16% CAGR during the forecast period. OLEDs are designed to develop displays used in devices like computer & television screens, consoles, smartphones, and others. The simple usability and high comfort are making OLED highly popular in the electronics industry. OLED market has witnessed a massive investment due to the fact that OLED displays provide superior Image quality and allow future foldable and roll-able displays. Its properties like extra thin, self-emission and lightweight are paving the way for OLED technology. They are also utilized in the automobile industry to develop back-window alerts, rear-view mirrors, and dashboard displays. OLEDs are costlier in comparison to LED and LCD products, which could hamper the growth of the market in the next few years.

Hydrogen and carbon are used in the making of OLED displays and thus, known as organic LED. OLED displays are one of the examples of green technology as they do not have any hazardous metals. OLED displays are highly utilized in smartphones, tablets, cameras, laptops. VR sets, TVs, and others. Top or bottom emission is the direction that the emitted light goes towards. When the emitted light is able to pass through the transparent bottom electrode and substrate on which the panel was developed, the system is known as the bottom emission OLED display. Transparent contacts are used by transparent OLED displays on both sides of the device. Graded heterojunction OLED displays slowly reduce the ratio of electron holes to electron transporting chemicals. Pixel architecture is used by stacked OLED displays and it stacks the blue, green, and red subpixels on top of each other.

Organic LED Market Size

The OLED market would be fueled by the rising investment and demand for consumer electronics like mobile phones, cameras, etc. in which this technology is utilized.
