Burgeoning Sales of Smartphones Worldwide to Augment Adoption of Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) Materials

Press release   •   Jul 11, 2017 06:36 EDT has announced the addition of a research report, titled “Global Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) Materials Market 2017-2021,” to its vast repository. The report provides a comprehensive study of the various aspects of the market, including its dynamics, regional segmentation, materials used, and vendor landscape. As per its findings, the global OLED materials market will expand at a CAGR of nearly 6.0% from 2017 to 2021.

The increasing incorporation of OLED with smartphones is one of the primary growth stimulants of the market. It is estimated that around 70% of the global population owned a smartphone in 2016, with the total shipment crossing the mark of one billion in that year. Smartphones are also making inroads in the shares of other types of phones. Their penetration rates are especially in emerging regions. It is observed that one in every 10 smartphones shipped in the recent years includes an OLED display. Therefore, the proliferation of smartphones is playing an instrumental role in the growth of the market.

However, the upward climb of the market is marred by the technical issues related to the material development and printing of OLEDs. Nevertheless, the burgeoning adoption of these diodes for various applications in the automotive sector is likely to shape the future of the market. These applications, include internal lighting tail lights, heads-up displays, dashboard displays, front lighting systems, and turn indicators.
