Markets for OLED Materials By

  1. 1. Markets for OLED Materials By ReportsnReports.comFor the better part of a decade: OLED materials represented, at best, no more than nicheopportunity for specialty chemical companies and a few start-ups. The small PM OLEDdisplays that found their way into MP3 payers and cell phone sub-displays represented anaddressable market of sorts for materials firms, but one that seemed destined to be plaguedforever with cost challenges and low margins. While materials firms were happy toparticipate in this market, their enthusiasm remained curbed by the fact that their productsseemed likely to be quickly commoditized.Buy Now: Markets for OLED MaterialsBrowse All: Newly Published Market Research ReportsBut in the last year to 18 months, the opportunities for OLED materials have grown inimportant ways. OLED displays have been “mainstreamed” with the arrival of mass marketcell phones that use OLED technology for their primary displays. Meanwhile, OLED lightingcan already be purchased in the form of “designer” chandeliers and table lamps; with largersegments of the lighting market likely to be penetrated by OLED lighting in the next fewyears. And while the first attempts to introduce OLED TVs have stumbled, it seems thatnext year will see the introduction of OLED TVs on the market with much greater chances ofmarket success than the products that preceded them.All of these trends mean that the addressable market for OLED materials are rapidlygrowing and will continue to do so. This means that pricing for these materials shouldfinally be able to take advantage of real economies of scale. Until now, OLED materialsseem to have been stuck in between the high prices that are typical of a research materialand much lower ones that are associated with widely used electronic materials.However, NanoMarkets believes that these welcome trends will be accompanied by newdemands on OLED materials makers. For example, AM OLED displays are largely beingmarketed in the consumer electronics space on image quality and vibrancy of color. Thisraises the question as to how materials makers can improve their products to help theircustomers sell more OLED cell phones and TVs. In the OLED lighting space, the focus is onefficiency and reducing total cost of ownership and, here again, it seems that OLEDmaterials suppliers can develop proprietary solutions that will give them long-termcompetitive advantages.NanoMarkets has been providing industry analysis of the OLED materials market for fiveyears. It is also the leading supplier of analysis in the OLED lighting space. In this report,NanoMarkets provides its latest assessment of the opportunities in OLED materials.Included in this report are granular eight-year forecasts of OLED materials, with breakoutsby type of material and application. The report covers the commercial implications oftechnical developments, such as in doping and novel OLED device structures and it alsotakes an in-depth look at the product and marketing strategies of the major players in this

The report also examines whether after years ofunkept promises printing may now have found an important role in the OLED space.Table Of ContentsExecutive SummaryE.1 Opportunities for OLED materials suppliers: What has changed since 2010E.2 Strategies of major chemical companies in the OLED materials marketE.3 Specialist OLED materials makers: Strategies and opportunitiesE.4 Printed OLEDs: A future or no?E.5 Implications of materials trends for OLED display and lighting manufacturersE.6 Summary of eight-year forecast of OLED materialsChapter One: Introduction1.1 Background to this report1.2 Goal and scope of this report1.3 Methodology and information sources for this report1.4 Plan of this reportChapter Two: What the Latest Developments in the OLED Industry Mean toMaterials Firms2.1 OLED market break out: How the OLED industry has changed in the past two years2.1.1 Small AM OLEDs become a mass market for the first time2.1.2 Two ways to make an OLED TV2.1.3 OLED lighting commercializes2.1.4 Whatever happened to PM OLEDs?2.2 Implications for OLED materials makers: Emerging requirements for materials2.2.1 OLED display image and color quality requirements2.2.2 Energy efficiency2.2.3 Luminance2.2.4 Flexibility2.3 Cost and manufacturing issues2.3.1 Printing, R2R and materials: The latest chapter2.3.2 Prospects for reducing OLED materials cost2.5 Key points made in the chapterChapter Three: OLED Materials, Architectures and Markets3.1 OLED stacks and design: the latest thinking3.2 Light coupling3.3 OLED stack materials3.3.1 Thinking on doping3.3.2 Emissive Layer (EML) materials3.3.3 Hole Injection Layer (HIL) materials3.3.4 Hole Transport Layer (HTL) materials3.3.5 Electron Blocking Layer (EBL) materials3.3.6 Hole Blocking Layer (HBL) materials3.3.7 Electron Transport Layer (ETL) materials3.3.8 Electron Injection Layer (EIL) materials3.4 Electrode materials3.4.1 OLEDs and the new ITO alternatives
