Flexible OLED Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast to 2020

Flexible OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) enables the device in which it is used to roll or bend while still operating. An OLED emits light due to the presence of thin films of organic semiconductors of thickness approximately 100 nanometers. The regular OLEDs are fabricated on a glass substrate, whereas flexible OLEDs use flexible plastic such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET). The replacement of glass with PET also reduces weight of the device. Flexible OLED market is in the nascent phase; however it is expected to skyrocket in the near future owing to the fast growth of electronics industry. OLEDs also find their application in the production of electronic paper or bendable displays that can be integrated into clothing, wallpaper or other curved surfaces.

LEDinside 1Q13 Silver+ Member Market Report

  Lighting: [Worldwide LED Lighting Market Value Reach 2,478 Million USD in 2013] LED outdoor lighting is being popularized worldwide from 2013 to 2015, especially in the Asian Countries like China, Japan and Taiwan. Driven by the policies, the global LED outdoor lighting market value growth rate is expected to exceed 46%.Besides, street light replacement projects will also be popularized in other emerging markets such as Thailand, Russia, Latin America and Africa starting from 2014. Till 2015, LED street light penetration rate is expected to slow down, and the worldwide LED street light installation volume will stay around 10 million per year.    The worldwide LED outdoor lighting market showed a strong growth in 2012. The new street light installation volume in China accounts for 30% in the global market, with governmental subsidy still being the major driving force. Especially under the situation of weak export sales, more and more companies start to focus on domestic public lighting projects in China. Due to fierce competition, the street lighting price further reduced in 2012, and companies with scale advantage can have more shipment, however, new manufacturers still keep to enter the market. LEDinside estimated that the new LED outdoor lighting installation volume in China reached 900,000 sets in 2012, and as the governmental subsidy projects start installation, the total installation volume in China will reach 1.21 million in 2013, among which the installation volume in Guangdong Province itself will exceed 300,000, becoming the fastest LED outdoor lighting growth momentum.
