In 2013, the OLED industry reached a number of milestones;
– Annual display revenue exceeding US$10B
– Release of 2 flexible display smartphones and multiple curved OLED TVs
– Recognition as the best smartphone display in the industry
– Recognition as the best TV in the industry
– OLED Lighting panels exceeding 130 lm/W at 1,000 cd/m2
OLEDs are positioned to change a rather stagnant display industry and to offer a new range of solutions for the solid state lighting market. As a further demonstration of the industry’s growth, a third AMOLED supplier has entered the market and now more than ten Chinese flat panel producers, including BOE, Tianma, Visionox, Ever Display and others are planning to produce AMOLED displays and as early as Q4’2014. Korean companies with advanced technologies in flexible display are planning to integrate more devices with flexible displays in later year 2014. The OLED Lighting industry has been also reducing costs in order to commercialize OLED panels in both rigid and flexible formats. The lighting application is also ready to enter flexible era, which could enable creativity and innovation for new lighting formation.
At the 2nd Annual Korea OLED Workshop, OLED Association, UBI Research and key speakers from the AMOLED industry will address the most critical issues facing the industry, including:
– Use of flexible OLEDs and how this technology could be a game changer in the display and lighting industries.
– Phosphorescent vs. fluorescent material and the challenges associated with organic blue.
– A comparison of printing vs. vacuum thermal evaporation and LITI as a solution to bringing down long term costs.
– Expanding into applications beyond smartphones, TVs and smart watches.
– The use of RGB patterning vs. RGBW in manufacturing large area displays
– New approaches to cost reduction for making OLED lighting panels competitive with LEDs and traditional lighting.
– The major manufacturing issues holding up high volume mass production of Large OLED displays for TVs.
– The challenges of using amorphous metal oxides and the costs of converting a-Si 7thGen and larger Fabs to AMOLEDs.
– The role of Chinese, Taiwan or Japanese display and lighting manufacturers and whether they can catch up and be competitive in AMOLEDs, next generation OLED lighting, transparent and flexible.
