Latest OLED Technology Trend Report


September 15, 2020



The “Latest OLED Technology Trend Report” analyzed the research presented by display companies, research institutes, and universities in SID, IMID, IDW from 2016 to 2020, and carefully selected and organized only the technology used in OLED manufacturing and the technology deemed applicable in the future.

It was compiled by Urabe (former Sony OLED development team leader/development director), a senior analyst at UBI Research.

The report will be a guideline that shows OLED developers the goals and directions of development by technology.
